Overview

Rosamunde Pilcher's journey begins in Cornwall where she grew up. The dreamy villages, stout cottages, and beautiful gardens of her childhood stand out amidst the artists' studios, galleries, and cafes. This is the landscape that readers of The Shell Seekers, The Empty House, and Coming Home know and love. Then there is the world of September and Wild Mountain Thyme - Rosamunde Pilcher's Scotland. Her home after marriage, the Scottish hills overflow with heather and clear streams running with trout. It's a place of country houses and annual balls that preserve the warmth of family and a stately pace of life. London has always been a welcome contrast to Rosamunde Pilcher's peaceful country life: socializing in elegant Kensington town houses, afternoon tea at the Ritz, and parties in Chelsea are all familiar rituals that evoke the mood of a time now past. With an introduction by the author, snapshots from family albums, mouth-watering recipes from her own kitchen, and extracts from her unforgettable novels and short stories, The World of Rosamunde Pilcher will be treasured by her millions of loyal fans.
