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.

Goodlooking 79 ,

Winter solstice.

A really good book, never knowing how it would end.

Just too long

This is a sweet story but SO waffly - also a bit twee for my liking (teenagers still calling their mother “mummy” does my head in). Won’t be reading any more of hers.

Started off well…

…but too many coincidences in the book for me.
