'Reading this anthology of short stories was like being wrapped in a cashmere shawl and travelling back to the recent past where people drank sherry before dinner and seemed to have more time. Highly recommended reading that will lift you during this difficult period we are experiencing. Find a saggy, chintz armchair, a log fire and a glass of sherry and indulge . . .'
An antidote to challenging times, this set of stories from a much-loved author has a comforting nostalgic feel - cosy and reassuring - with Rosamunde Pilcher's signature insight into domestic hopes and yearnings, taking us into a gentler world.
A PLACE LIKE HOME is a wonderful treat for fans of Rosamunde Pilcher's writing. Each story resonates with the echoes of a voice that is at once familiar and beloved. Reading this collection of love stories does indeed feel just like returning to a place like home.
As with every Rosamunde Pilcher story - long or short - I began to read and couldn't stop
How lyrical it is, yet how deeply the stories touched me. I've often found it difficult to concentrate on a long novel but these stories are perfect for the times, exquisite little gems of romantic escapism taking me completely away to another time and place.
