The World of Rosamunde Pilcher

On a recent visit to the library, I was delighted to find this treasure of a book: The World of Rosamunde Pilcher.

For anyone who is a fan of Rosamunde Pilcher's novels, you are in for a treat. In this gorgeously-illustrated book, Mrs. Pilcher invites you to share with her 'the breathtaking views and tranquil places that have inspired her writings. Places like the coasts of Cornwall. The Highlands of Scotland. The society of London.

Included is a delightful introduction by the author, as well as snapshots from her family albums and recipes from her own kitchen.

If you have never read her books (Shell Seekers, Coming Home, September, Winter Solstice...), this book might have you heading right out the door to find copies. And, if you're already a 'forever' fan, you'll be reaching for your collection to read them all over again.

Happy Reading,


  1. I don't believe I've read any books by this author, but now after reading through the website, I think I'll remedy that! ;D

  2. Love Pilcher and her books. This sounds like a great one to browse through!!

  3. I am a Rosamunde Pilcher fan. First discovered "The Shell Seekers" quite a few years ago and have read anything I have come across by her since. Thanks for the tips. I will definitely be looking out for her book. A

  4. Brenda, that books sounds lovely! I love her books!

  5. I'm also a fan of Rosamunde's writings. Her books and short stories are like old, faithful friends that I revisit often. One of my favorite scenes comes from "Under Gemini". It's Sunday afternoon; there's a drift of Sunday newspapers, a walk on the beach in the bracing breeze and for tea, hot buttered toast by the fire. It's such a cozy scene, it makes me "homesick" for something I've never had.

  6. I am indeed a Rosamunde Pilcher fan. I think I have most of her books and love to reread them, especially on a rainy afternoon cozied up with some tea.
    Another great thing we have in common!
