Shona MacLeod walks with arms flailing, her speech is almost non-existant. She lives on an island in Scotland and laments her isolation and the loss of her Uncle who has left for America. She just knew that she had reached a time in her life when something had to happen. Then Carl happened. He arrived on the ferry with his dad who had just bought the island. Could her princess fantasy be becoming a reality?
