You can never escape yourself. It has been a year since the death of Brodie 'Tosh' Mackintosh's husband, Harry. Unable to face all the memories of their life together, he moves into the house of his best friend, Darach McNaughton, and is comforted by the local Church of Scotland minister, Sam Carmichael, the middle of the five Carmichael brothers. Sam Carmichael has always been a bit different from his siblings. He's the only blond in a family of redheads, and the only one with religious beliefs. He also has more than one secret. Can these two men overcome the events of their pasts and find truth and comfort with each other? And, when all their secrets are revealed, will they be forced apart or be able to plan on staying home together?
