On the last day of her mother's life, Rebecca learns she has a family in Cornwall, and sets out to find the grandfather and cousin she has never known. But only the enigmatic Joss Gardner, the outsider who seems to be the apple of her grandfather's eye, can help her understand the dark currents that lie behind her family's loving reception.

    Recommend Pilcher

    I have enjoyed all the books from Pilcher since I first read The Shell Seekers. I read this one on my NOOK, but it was still a page turner.

    READ IT IF YOU WANT TO FEEL WARM AND COZY...

    I always feel at home with Rosamunde Pilcher's books... I feel like I KNOW her characters.. and am always disappointed to finish reading each of her books.. I miss the characters when I start a new book no matter the author...

    I can only recommend her books if this is how you like to feel when you read a book... I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    I wanted to like it...

    ...much more than I did. Too much happened in a short space of time to make the plot even a little believable. I was uncomfortable with the love triangle which was more unbelievable than the plot. Very disappointed with a writer I previously enjoyed.

    Too brief.

    Interesting characters and plot but could certainly have been developed further. More a short story than a book. After "Shell Seekers" and "Coming Home" I was disappointed by this book.

    I haven't read any of her books for many years. This is one I never came across before and I loved it. Makes me want to reread all the others.
