Five Hundred Miles

by Jenny Colgan

Part of the Kirrinfief Series

Relationship Stories Modern and Contemporary Fiction Literary Fiction

Five Hundred Miles Synopsis

Lissa loves her job as a nurse, but recently she's been doing a better job of looking after other people than looking after herself. After a traumatic incident at work leaves her feeling overwhelmed, she agrees to swap lives with someone in a quiet village in Scotland.

Cormac is restless. Just out of the army, he's desperately in need of distraction, and there's precious little of it in Kirrinfief. Maybe three months in London is just what he needs.

As Lissa and Cormac warm to their new lives, emailing back and forth about anything and everything, finally things seem to be falling into place. But each of them feel there's still a piece missing. What - or who - could it be?

And what if it's currently five hundred miles away?
