Jennifer Redmond has a near-fatal accident and wakes up in hospital suffering from amnesia. When her memory returns, she remembers why she was running away.
Jennifer Redmond, flees to Scotland to get away from her scheming, work-obsessed husband, Peter and finds a hotel in a remote Highland village. The owner, Angus Cameron, a quiet lonely man, befriends her. Whilst walking in the mountains Jennifer falls, is critically injured and eventually rescued by helicopter and taken to hospital.
After suffering an out-of-body experience, Jennifer gradually recovers from her injuries and short-term amnesia, but not before Peter has discovered her secret hideaway. He worms his way back into her confidence after her memory returns and despite having doubts, she returns to England with him, unaware of the reasons why he wants her back, or that he's considering having an affair with his young secretary, Susie. Peter takes her to New York on a business trip: he also invites Susie...
Will Jennifer stay with Peter, or try to find love and happiness with Angus in the Highlands of Scotland and regain her self-respect? How many more disasters will occur before she decides? And how will a thin, hungry and straggly dingo in the outback of Australia finally influence her decision? (See Chapter 31). Clever dog!
