The population of the tiny Scottish island of Ronansay is ageing. It's just a matter of time until it dies out completely. The crisis comes to breaking point when the education authority threatens to close Ronansay's primary school at the end of the current term ... unless more pupils enroll to keep it open. And so the islanders decide to find some extra children.
This is the chance of a lifetime for Abby Wallace, a single mother living on a housing estate in London with her two young children. Life's opportunities are passing them by and Ronansay's advertisement is the answer to their dreams. But there's one problem: no husband. So Abby's best friend, Kenny agrees to pretend to be Abby's husband and soon Abby, her children, Alfie and Charley, and Kenny are on their way to Ronansay.
Abby is transformed from anonymous council-dweller to proprietor of a bed and breakfast. She's also the local curiosity and she's loving every minute of it. But keeping up the charade of marriage isn't easy, especially when the local salmon farmer takes a shine to her. Although Abby has to learn things the hard way, she's determined to make a go of it on Ronansay. She has found her TWO THOUSAND ACRES OF SKY and she'll work hard to keep it.
