The novels of Rosamunde Pilcher are some of my favorite reading, so imagine my delight when I discovered that there a few more of her books that I had somehow missed! The Empty House was set in Cornwall, which is the home of my imagination, so of course I loved it.
From the publisher:
At twenty-seven, Virginia Keile had been through the most intense experiences life had to offer–a magical first love ending in heartbreak, a suitable marriage, motherhood, and widowhood. All she wanted now was to take her daughter and son to a seaside cottage and help them recover. But Virginia’s true love was there, waiting, hoping, praying that this time she would be strong enough to seize happiness.
The story was kind and gentle, as are all of her books, and was a great comfort read…happy Saturday reading.
