One of the most beloved storytellers of our time, Rosamund Pilcher first achieved international recognition with The Shell Seekers. Then came September, brimming with memorable characters, people we cared about, cherished and loved. These two remarkable stories have become modern classics around the world.
Now, after five years in the writing, Coming Home is the tale Rosamund Pilcher believes to be the capstone of a lifetime of writing. Her most ambitious and compelling work yet, Coming Home is a vast canvas, and a vividly drawn portrait of an era close to us in time, yet now disappeared.
Like The Shell Seekers, Coming Home is an intensely personal story. Like September, it teems with marvelous, memorable characters. Coming Home is a story to be savored, an old-fashioned tale hardly anyone knows how to tell anymore. In telling the story of Judith Dunbar and her loved ones, Rosamunde Pilcher decribes each family member with warmth, wisdom and clear-eyed insight. Coming Home is ia totally involving story of a young woman's coming of age, coming to terms with both love and sadness, and, in every sense of the word, Coming Home.
Rosamunde Pilcher is the author of such worldwide bestselling novels as The Shell Seekers, September, Winter Solstice, and Voices in Summer. The Shell Seekers was a Book Sense Book of the Year Honor Book. She is also the author of The World of Rosamunde Pilcher. Pilcher is an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).
