Lorna’s world is small but safe.

She loves her daughter, and the two of them is all that matters. But after nearly twenty years, she and Ella are suddenly leaving London for the Isle of Kip, the tiny remote Scottish island where Lorna grew up.

Alice’s world is tiny but full.

She loves the community on Kip, her yoga classes drawing women across the tiny island together. Now Lorna’s arrival might help their family finally mend itself – even if forgiveness means returning to the past…

So with two decades, hundreds of miles and a lifetime’s worth of secrets between Lorna and the island, can coming home mean starting again?

For a feel-good read, look no further than the latest offering from the bestselling author of The Lido.
Libby Page, author of The Lido, has done it again with one of 2021's most joyful reads.
Charlotte Moore, COSMOPOLITAN
After more than a year without travel, reading The Island Home really does feel like an escape, one that takes you on virtual holiday to a Scottish island where the sense of place, that starting point for Libby's ideas, is ever-present... I'm certain The Island Home will stay with everyone who reads it this summer, long after they've turned the final page.
If you're looking for a book to take you away from cold, dark and miserable day, let Libby Page settle you into a deckchair in the sunshine.
Gloriously tender, Page's latest novel is arguably her best... Genuine like the characters she portrays, Page has the ability to magically weave objects into beautiful metaphorical phrases. Billed as "a holiday in a book", it will provide contentment, adventure and a heart-warming glow.
