    A good, solid read for people who like this sort of thing which I do Rich description and dialogue make the rural English setting feel familiar, even for those of us who don t own cottage farms or drink afternoon tea.I really should start drinking afternoon tea.

    A pleasant, entertaining story of a 50ish widow who finds a new love after her successful but secretly dreadful husband dies Not quite as good as Joanna Trollope but fun When I tell you that this was not only the large print edition, but that it has From Rosamunde Pilcher s Bookshelf printed on the cover, you know all you need to know.

    A very enjoyable novel featuring a four generation family The grandmother Kate is the main protagonist There are some excellent, believable characters and a clear, gentle plot with many interesting sub plots.I first read it in 2001 and had totally forgotten the story when I re read it eighteen years later So there were some surprises that I didn t see coming and they worked very well Great writing, good pace, some light humour and some very moving scenes Almost impossible to put down Thi A very enjoyable novel featuring a four generation family The grandmother Kate is the main protagonist There are some excellent, believable characters and a clear, gentle plot with many interesting sub plots.I first read it in 2001 and had totally forgotten the story when I re read it eighteen years later So there were some surprises that I didn t see coming and they worked very well Great writing, good pace, some light humour and some very moving scenes Almost impossible to put down This book works as a kind of sequel to A Price for Everything , with some of the characters from that appearing as minor ones in this novel Highly recommended to anyone who likes women s fiction Full review here

    A romance of sorts, very Brit cosy light read think Older Chick Lit Interesting, well developed story of 50 something recent widow of a less than thrilling man who, finally, finds true love and discovers her own self along the way With a true mixed bag of supporting characters, all very British, and many side observations that can be viewed as either interesting or annoying, depending on your mood views Might get heavy for American readers, but still worthy it enough.I tried her other A romance of sorts, very Brit cosy light read think Older Chick Lit Interesting, well developed story of 50 something recent widow of a less than thrilling man who, finally, finds true love and discovers her own self along the way With a true mixed bag of supporting characters, all very British, and many side observations that can be viewed as either interesting or annoying, depending on your mood views Might get heavy for American readers, but still worthy it enough.I tried her other novels afterwards but found them closer to annoying than interesting

    I ve been enjoying the mother daughter relationship aspect in the bookand seeing how the main character steps out and begins a career in her 50 s Somewhat of a surprised and happy endingbut you have to wade through a lot of bumpy relational drama It did remind me of Rosamunde Pilcher books, though.

    I really enjoyed this book The main character Kate Rendlesham did a lot of growing as a person during the book but then she needed to She had let other people use and control her for far too many years.

    This is a pleasant book, not earth shattering but just enough to enjoy if you want something light and easy I enjoyed it.

    This author is on the Rosamunde Pilcher Bookshelf Apparently Roz has given the nod to a selection of authors novels that are worth a read This one was fun, but it wasn t as good as Roz s best.
