Publisher's Summary

Teacher required. Must have boat.
Molly is a predictable, no surprises, plan ahead kind of girl, and the last person who should answer the ad for a teaching job on the remote Scottish island of Lilliebrae. She's never been the type of adventurous spirit that would even consider such a radical change. And truthfully, she only took the job after her life in America went from bad to worse. From day one on the island, Molly's sure she's not meant to stay. When a rugged journeyman arrives, things get even more complicated, and she's pushed even further outside her comfort zone. With his help, Molly works on finding the beauty of perhaps.
In this snapshot of modern day Scotland, Eryn Scott weaves one woman's journey of self-discovery with Scottish tradition and a sprinkling of windswept love.

A bit of a Scottish flavor

The Beauty of Perhaps, by Eryn Scott, is a book about the journey of a woman trying to find herself and building relationships through the world. It’s my first book by this author and though I found the story predicable, it’s by no means lacking in fun and sincerity and a bit of a Scottish flavor. I think that’s what got me and made me really enjoy this book. I liked Molly (the main character) enough, but it’s the beautiful descriptions of the Scottish countryside, the picture of Lilliebrae and its inhabitants, all the adventures she finds there, what brings this story to life and make listening to it a unique experience. Elizabeth Klett has a great range of voices for male and female characters, making all characters very easily identifiable and real in their own way, and her Scottish brogue was simply a relish to listen to. She was outstanding with the delivery of the story, improving the listener experience.

I was given a copy of the audio book in exchange of an honest review and I would recommend it to everyone, but specially fans of a good Scottish story.

I would give this story 10 stars if I could

Where does The Beauty of Perhaps rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of my favorite audiobooks I've ever listened to this year. The story line while some might say predictable it was one of the best stories I've read this year. While it was a romance it was more of a woman finding who she was from who she thought she was.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beauty of Perhaps?

When Molly released she could paint and finally was able to do get a painting done

What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

I loved how she brought the Scottish language and sounds to life. This is one of the only times I've said that the audio version is much better than the print or ebook version. The audio version brings the Scottish language to life so much better than if you are reading it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I just feel in love with this book from the beginning. There was so many times I was moved by this story its hard to pick just one.

Any additional comments?

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author but that in no way effected my review as I would have happily given a credit to purchase this book. I feel in love so much I've already purchases the ebook version. This is a story well worth your time
