Publisher: ISIS

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Little, Brown, 2015 From a small town outside Edinburgh comes the news that a young boy has been recounting vivid recollections of a past life: a perfect description of an island off the coast of Scotland which he couldn't possibly know, and a house there, where he claims to have spent his former life. When the boy's mother asks Isabel Dalhousie to investigate his claims, she feels she must help them learn the truth, and she and her husband Jamie set off for the island. But finding the house the boy has described only leads to more complicated questions. And when they learn the tragic story of the family who lived there, Isabel is suddenly faced with a situation of extraordinary delicacy that will require all of her skills both as a sleuth and a philosopher.
