Publisher Description

A beautiful novel by the much-loved Rosamunde Pilcher.

Elfrida Phipps loves her new life in her pretty Hampshire village. She has a tiny cottage, her faithful dog Horace and the friendship of the neighbouring Blundells - particularly Oscar - to ensure that her days include companionship as well as independence. But an unforeseen tragedy upsets Elfrida's tranquillity: Oscar's wife and daughter are killed in a terrible car crash and he finds himself homeless when his stepchildren claim their dead mother's inheritance.

Oscar and Elfrida take refuge in a rambling house in Scotland which becomes a magnet for various waifs and strays who converge upon it, including an unhappy teenage girl. It could be a recipe for disaster. But somehow the Christmas season weaves its magical spell and for Elfrida and Oscar, in the evening of their lives, the winter solstice brings love and solace.

One of my favourite books.

I bought this book when it was first published & I’ve read it at least 13 times. I just get lost in the story each time & am sad when it ends. I love all the characters in this book & always felt there was a sequel just waiting to come out. There was definitely some unfinished story lines ( in my imagination ) !

Enthralling

This is the second time I have rad this book and it still made me feel like I was there, the characters were my friends, the atmosphere so warm and enveloping. The only disappointing part of this book was that it ended!! I so wanted to keep reading and reading

Wonderful

This is a gentle book full of the interesting characters that Ms Pilcher typically has in her books. The stories of the various characters come together in a fairly predictable but enjoyable manner. The story has sad, tender and humorous moments. I recommend this as a lovely restful book.
