I must start with the fact that this book’s main character bears a special name, and one that is my middle name. I love this! It is so rare to see Aileen spelled with an A. I suppose I was already invested in Aileen before I really even began the book. This is what attracted me to it when I read the blurb. I have never had the pleasure of ready Wendy Hewlett prior to this so I had no idea what to expect. I was extremely happy that I loved this book as much as I did.
Ailey of Skye will take you on an emotional and suspenseful roller-coaster literally from the very beginning straight up until the end. If its got a label the emotion was felt, and a few others I probably can’t name were felt too. Aileen is still new at sobriety and she is running from her past right from the get go when she discovers that she has family in Skye Scotland. Problem is she has no clue who these people are and what the trip will entail. I sincerely felt as if I was right with her as she tackled the dangerous and scary parts in Toronto. I also felt the impact of the gorgeous place that Scotland is. The world building is phenomenal. I will definitely be awaiting whatever may come next from Wendy Hewlett.
