Five Hundred Miles From You

£8.99

Three months. Two people. One love story. Lissa Westcott loves being a nurse, but recently she’s been doing a better job of looking after other people than looking after herself. Deciding she needs a break from London, Lissa agrees to swap positions with someone in the little Scottish village of Kirrinfief. Five hundred and eighty-three miles north, Cormac MacPherson is feeling restless. Not long out of the army, he came to Kirrinfief in search of a peaceful life, which so far has eluded him. He’s never spent more than a day in a big city, so perhaps a change of scene would do him good. It’s only three months – what’s the worst that could happen? As Lissa and Cormac settle into each other’s lives – navigating the lack of personal space (Cormac) and food delivery options (Lissa) – they email constantly about anything and everything. But what will happen when Lissa and Cormack finally meet?

Escape with Jenny Colgan.

Lissa loves her job as a nurse, but recently she’s been doing a better job of looking after other people than looking after herself. After a traumatic incident at work leaves her feeling overwhelmed, she agrees to swap lives with someone in a quiet village in Scotland.

Cormac is restless. Just out of the army, he’s desperately in need of distraction, and there’s precious little of it in Kirrinfief. Maybe three months in London is just what he needs.

As Lissa and Cormac warm to their new lives, emailing back and forth about anything and everything, finally things seem to be falling into place. But each of them feel there’s still a piece missing. What – or who – could it be?
