We're waiting for you to come and play. 

Dunvegan School for Girls has been closed for many years. Converted into a family home, the teachers and students are long gone. But they left something behind.

Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lilias with a fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then there's her other cousin. The girl with a room full of antique dolls. The girl that shouldn't be there. The girl that died.

Evie Snow was the love of Vincent’s life; in fact, she was the love of every lifetime he would ever live. Though he never stopped loving her, and he certainly could never forget her, events conspired to separate the two lovers.
Now, Vincent has the chance to make right a mistake from his past and to potentially alter the course of events in his and Evie's favour. While doing so, he realises he has embarked on a journey that will teach him all about love, life and humanity; but one thing he does not know for sure is whether it will lead him back to the only woman he every loved.

Musing Mondays / 7th November

I haven't really been active on Amy's Bookish Life much recently and I do apologise for that. Life has been so busy with University, Work and trying to have somewhat of a social life, so this blog I admit has been neglected. However, I am now going to be working myself into a routine with regards to this blog. I am hopefully going to be posting 1 or 2 book reviews a week, along with a personal post and a few memes for fun. Which brings me onto the next topic - I am going to be doing Musing Mondays again! So enjoy!
