Where indeed do you seek sanctuary when your past has changed irrevocably, your memories are false and your future is uncertain? A gripping plot full of credible characters... set in a convincing background.  SCOTS MAGAZINE

A man tries to forge a new future for himself by reconnecting with his past. Iain Martin hopes that by returning to his Hebridean heartland and embarking on a quest to reconstruct an ancient family home, he might find a new purpose. But as he begins work on the old blackhouse, he uncovers a secret from the past which forces him to question everything.


A fine, rewarding read.  The Sunday Herald

A combination of Changing Rooms and Agatha Christie, Mackay’s Heartland demonstrates the Scotland Today presenter has a readable easy-going prose style.  Scottish Review of Books
