Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in a novel that is a true masterpiece, Rosamunde Pilcher's Coming Home—the basis for the TV miniseries of the same name—is a book to be savored, reread, and cherished forever.
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.
I love this book. It’s been with me a long time I have read it many times. It makes me cry at points and full of joy and is there when I need to fill my heart. R. Pilcher my favorite author always
This is by far my favorite book ever. A masterpiece of first person history of WWII, intertwined with stories of romance, family and deep seated roots. Hated for it to end!
I need more stars
Rosamunde Pilcher's books are so beautifully written that I immerse myself into her characters as well as the stories. I must have read this one at least three times.
