Publisher Description

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.

Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in a novel that is a true masterpiece, Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher is a book to be savored, reread, and cherished forever.

Big Delicious Saga

I’m s huge fan of Rosamunde Pilcher and historical fiction and this book did not disappoint! The worst part was that it ended, so deeply engrossed I was in the complex characters and locations. As Americans we don’t realize how hard WW2 was on civilians who lived among the fighting; Mrs. Pilcher takes the reader into the thick of it whether it be war-torn England or the relative peace of Sri Lanka. I’ll read this book over and over again, just as I have with The Shell Seekers. Beautiful story and perfectly written; abig, juicy saga to dig into and lose oneself.

Favorite Book

This is my favorite book of all time, and one of very few I've read twice. Once you read one of Rosemund Pilcher's books, you'll want to read them all. She puts you right into the setting, along with the characters. You'll live what they live and feel as they feel. I've wanted to visit Cornwall since I read this book the first time! Maybe I'll get there some day.
