An emotive and timeless collection of short stories by the much-loved Rosamunde Pilcher.

Through thick mist and a cold east wind, Lavinia returns to Scotland. Up at the big house Mrs Farquhar is dying. Seeing Lachlan again, Lavinia remembers her childhood holidays there: swimming in the loch, the picnics, bottle-feeding the lambs down at the farm and the evenings when they danced reels. Most of all, she remembers Mrs Farquhar’s grandson Rory.

In the house, as the old lady lies serene and beautiful in the bed she has slept in since coming home to Lachlan as a bride, Lavinia meets Rory once again.

Flowers in the Rain is one of sixteen stories, each giving another magical glimpse into Rosamunde Pilcher’s world. The world in which most would prefer to live all the time.
