Rosamunde Pilcher has had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and short-story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel The Shell Seekers that captured the hearts of all who read it and won her international recognition as one of the most-loved storytellers of our time. The Shell Seekers was followed by September and then by Coming Home and Winter Solstice, which were also immediately embraced by Mrs. Pilcher's devoted readers to become worldwide bestsellers. She lives in Perthshire, Scotland, with her husband, Graham, and their dachshund, Daisy.
Having lost her mother at childbirth, Emma Litton has spent all of her life struggling to guarantee a place in her artist father's life. After spending much of her adult life in Paris as a nanny, she returns to England to settle into her father's studio at the Cornish seaside. Sian Thomas, a magnificent Emma, has a perfunctory ability to shift character portrayals. Whether personifying Emma's witty and talented half-brother Cristo; her deep and introspective father; or her admirer, the handsome art gallery owner, Thomas exudes warmth and creates vivid brush stokes of bold color. Soothing yet never boring, Thomas is a skilled narrator. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
