About this title:

Synopsis:

Against the backdrop of an elegant Cornwall mansion before World War II and a vast continent-spanning canvas during the turbulent war years, this involving story tells of an extraordinary young woman's coming of age, coming to grips with love and sadness, and in every sense of the term, coming home...

In 1935, Judith Dunbar is left behind at a British boarding school when her mother and baby sister go off to join her father in Singapore. At Saint Ursula's, her friendship with Loveday Carey-Lewis sweeps her into the privileged, madcap world of the British aristocracy, teaching her about values, friendship, and wealth. But it will be the drama of war, as it wrenches Judith from those she cares about most, that will teach her about courage...and about love.

Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in a novel that is a true masterpiece, Rosamunde Pilcher's Coming Home is a book to be savored, reread, and cherished forever.

From the Inside Flap: 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.
