'I love how Pilcher paints the setting, the scenery and the locals. This book has you questioning motherhood, widowhood, family, loyalty and more but at the same time whilst doing all this it's cosy, inviting and warm' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A feel-good story about second chances by the beloved Rosamunde Pilcher

Virginia Keile has a secret dream - to have a second chance at loving the tall, handsome Cornish farmer she met, and foolishly lost, the heady summer she was a debutante. Life has taught Virginia a great deal in twenty-seven years - about wedding a titled bachelor picked out by her mother, a lonely marriage that ended in her husband's accidental death, and nearly losing her children to her mother-in-law and bossy Nanny.

Now she has come back to picturesque Cornwall to rent a battered seaside cottage for herself and for the children. And to discover if she can fill an empty house with love.


'Yet another of Rosamunde Pitcher's superb books. Her stories are so thoughtful and, although you know that, yet again, all will be well in the end, it is the joy of taking the journey with her that makes it so difficult to put the book down until you have finished the last page' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

'A true story teller, Rosamunde Pilcher has once again woven a story of conflict, with twists and turns and a happy ending' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
