The isolated cottage on the remote Hebridean island of Moila seemed like an ideal away-from-it-all retreat for writer Rose Fenemore, a place where she could work in peace, and where her brother Crispin could walk, fish, and photograph the birds and wildlife. But it is not easy to escape the world and its troubles. Crispin's arrival is delayed, and Rose, on her own in the lonely cottage, has to cope with two very different men who come in from the sea on a night of summer storm.
"Rose Fenemore is a tutor of English at one of the Cambridge colleges; she also writes poetry and now needs an "ivory tower"' retreat. Brother Crispin promises to join her for a holiday on the Scottish island of Moila but is delayed. Alone in her cottage, Rose is at first terrified, then angry and puzzled, by the night arrivals - separately - of two men.... For Stewart's many followers, a pleasant armchair holiday in a wild and lovely landscape." (Kirkus Reviews)

Not Stewart's best, sound quality a problem
Not the Ivy Tree but good
When she was trapped on the Island and heard the Stormy Petrels
Easy to follow as she changed characters. Both leading male characters sounded alike but other than that there were no problems
No. I was hoping it would be like The Ivy Tree or Nine Coaches Waiting. It was not that good but it was enjoyable.
I hope that you will start to carry more of Mary Stewart in her Romance/Adventure. Madam will you talk and Nine Coaches Waiting, the Moon Spinners and my favorite, The Ivy Tree. If you carry them you will sell them.
