After her dear stepfather has a fatal heart attack, Alicia returns home to the Åland Islands to support her mother, Hilda. She leaves behind a new life forged in Stockholm with her lover, Patrick.
But when her lover’s ex, Mia, the daughter of the local property magnet, makes moves to rekindle her relationship with Patrick, Alicia is torn between duty and her own happiness.
Alicia’s hopes of a brighter future are further dashed when deeply buried family secrets surface. How can she forge a new life when everything she believed to be true about her past is a lie?
Meanwhile, Alicia’s best friend, Brit, has her own problems. After a life spent footloose and fancy-free, travelling the world working on cruise ships, she’s both horrified and delighted when she sees a thin pink line on a test tube. But how can she have a baby with a man she’s only known for a matter of months?
The Island Daughter is the third novel in Helena Halme’s Love on the Island series, but it can also be enjoyed as a standalone read.
Join Alicia’s small island community for another instalment in the “captivating” new series set on the most picturesque of Scandinavian islands. Once you enter her world, you’ll never want to leave.
