I loved this book for its vivid characters, enchanting descriptions of the town, but mostly because it pulled me along in the story of people being people, and Ms. Pilcher made me care about them. The story takes place in a time slot of the summer, but her flashes back fill in all the reader needs to know about the wonderful characters she builds. My only comment is that, because of the descriptions, a reader who wants to move quickly in a book storyline, or who likes the quick punches of the mystery novel might want to look at a few pages before deciding if it's 'their kind of book.' For the rest of us who love a good read with a cup of coffee or tea by a fire, this is truly great. It only gets better with 'Coming Home' and 'Winter Solstice'--her next great books after 'September.' Please don't say the book is boring. That's not right, but only seems that way to a reader who likes a different type of novel altogether. For the Pilcher-type readers, this is a must read!

I read this book every single September, and it is in the top five all-time favorites of mine. It is beautifully written, and the characters are much loved. I just wish Ms. Pilcher were still writing, because I LOVE her books!

I love Rosamunde Pilcher's novels, not so much the short stories. I have read and re-read her books many times. I am delighted to get them in E form. I am just now reading them all again.

This is another all time favorite of mine. A great romance. A must read for any lover of love.

Typical Pilcher book. I so enjoy her characters and the way in which she introduces them and is so descriptive of their homeland.

This is one of my favorite books. One that I have read over and over. I love the characters, and the insight into living in northern Scotland. I have read all of Ms Pilcher's books, but this one, and Winter Solstice, are the ones I keep coming back to like 'comfort food'.

I enjoyed September even more the second time I read it. Ms. Pilchar creates the most wonderful characters that stay with you for years.

wonderful--maybe people who think it's boring should stick to comic books

After reading the Shell Seekers, I couldn't wait to read another book by this author. I am almost finished reading it, but it has not been fun. Nothing has happened on much consequence in over 300 pages. Unless something big happens in the last 60 pages, I just wasted my money!

I usually love Ms. Pilcher's books so I kept reading this long after I should have given up. By the time I finished I wondered why I bothered.

Broken Heart shook under her covers, cold. It was the middle of the winter, and there was no heating in the attic. With only a thin sheet to keep warm, she shivered as the night went on. She was only a filly, about 10 years of age, and was nearly freezing to death. Every time she closed her eyes, she feared it would be the last. Very slowly, she drifted off to sleep. <p> Broken awoke to the pain of her side being whipped, leaving a red mark. Tears flooded her eyes, but she didnt cry. She was used to it. She followed the Master outside, along with many other young ponies her age. Scars adorned each of their sides, the older the more scars. As they walked, the herd of foal slaves reached the stable. Once again, it was covered with crisp white snow. Broken picked up a shovel and began shoveling all the snow out. The other ponies did the same, hauling snow out of the stable. This happened every day of the winter. Brokens entire life was work for the Master. Whether it was shoveling or plowing the feilds, or at least attempting to and getting whipped. About half an hour later, they were done. "Its about time." The Master growled. "Now clean every room in this house. If one of these rooms is dirty, all of you will be punished." With that, the fillys and colts scrambled off to a room, hoping not to get whipped again. Broken raced up the stairs to the attic. It took a while, as there were many stairs in the mansion. She grabbed a broom on the way up and quickly began sweeping the floor. Dust flew up, causing her to cough. It was still cold as he<_>ll in the attic, but she prefered it to any other spot in the mansion. She didnt know why, but this was where she felt most comfertable, though comfertable would be an exaggeration, considering what horrible ordeals shed gone through in here. She heard hoofsteps walking up the stairs to the attic. She wasnt finished cleaning yet whuch meant..."Not done?" The Master grumbled. He levitated a knife from his pocket, it hovering above Brokens Cutie Mark. "Looks like somepony needs to learn their lesson."

I must say right off that I did not read the entire book...I could'nt get through it. It was just so tedious and boring. Note to the author, we don't need to have such a detailed description of EVERYTHING!! By the time I was less than 100 pages into it, I was ready to pull my hair out.
