Publisher Description

A PLACE LIKE HOME by Rosamunde Pilcher coming in hardcover in February 2021. Pre-order now.

The phenomenal, heartwarming bestseller by the much-loved Rosamunde Pilcher.

Artist's daughter Penelope Keeling can look back on a full and varied life: a Bohemian childhood in London and Cornwall, an unhappy wartime marriage, and the one man she truly loved. She has brought up three children - and learned to accept them as they are.

Yet she is far too energetic and independent to settle sweetly into pensioned-off old-age. And when she discovers that her most treasured possession, her father's painting, The Shell Seekers, is now worth a small fortune, it is Penelope who must make the decisions that will determine whether her family can continue to survive as a family, or be split apart.

The Shell Seekers

I read occasionally and in the past have lacked concentration in the face of background noise.I was given the book Coming Home and loved every bit of it,I was surprised to realise I could block out my surroundings because the writing was so absorbing and well written. I shouldn't have been surprised as the writer is such a professsional.The Shell Seekers is even more readable and has given me many more hours of pleasure, it was no surprise that it was made into a film.
I look forward to reading more of your books in the future.
Many thanks

Rosamunde Pilcher has a way of making you feel like you are there with the characters in her story.
Her descriptions of places,the weather,food,drink etc are so beautifully written you can almost feel and see what is being described.

I have read and re-read many of Rosamunde Pilchers books and will probably,no doubt,read them all again.
