Synopsis

'This book is the literary equivalent of a warm, soft blanket, a log fire and a cup of strong, sweet tea on a snowy winter night. With the Scotland setting, it is utterly irresistible' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

An endearing and poignant novel about loss and the healing power of love by the beloved Rosamunde Pilcher

Elfrida Phipps loves her new life in her pretty Hampshire village. She has a tiny cottage, her faithful dog Horace and the friendship of the neighbouring Blundells - particularly Oscar - to ensure that her days are filled with companionship as well as independence. But an unforeseen tragedy upsets Elfrida's tranquillity: Oscar's wife and daughter are killed in a terrible car crash, and he finds himself homeless when his stepchildren claim their dead mother's inheritance.

Oscar and Elfrida take refuge in a rambling house in Scotland, which becomes a magnet for various waifs and strays who converge upon it, including an unhappy teenage girl. It could be a recipe for disaster. But somehow the Christmas season weaves its magic and the winter solstice brings love and solace.
