    DescriptionFor Judith Dunbar, her first glimpse of Nancherrow, her friend Loveday's beautiful family estate on the Cornish coast, is love at first sight - after the rigours of boarding school it spells luxury. She falls in love, too, with all Loveday's family. They treat Judith as one of them. With their generosity and kindness, Judith grows from naive girl to confident young woman basking in the warmth of a surrogate family whose flame of love and affection burns brightly. But it is a flame soon to be extinguised in the gathering storm of war. In the danger and deprivation of the 'forties, those sun-drenched Cornish days seem as distant as a dream. Many of the young people whose carefree laughter echoed round Nancherrow will laugh no more. And Judith herself has far to travel before at last ...coming home.

    Author Information
    Rosamunde Pilcher has had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and short story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel, The Shell Seekers, that captured the hearts of all who read it, and won her international recognition as one of the best-loved storytellers of our time. It was voted one of UK's top 100 novels in the BBC's Big Read in 2003. Her bestselling novels, September, Coming Home and Winter Solstice were made into television films. She was awarded an O.B.E for services to literature in 2002 and an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Dundee University in 2010.
    Review quote
    The novel has a gently sweet flavour, it continues to beguile because of Pilcher's warmth, sincerity and easy, undemanding prose The Sunday Times Compelling pages packed with convincing characters, vivid settings and weepy bits Daily Mail A great featherbed of a novel, all the right ingredients Woman & Home Especially good on atmosphere and a lonely teenager's bewilderment, Pilcher's storytelling skills are serene and beguiling The Times Much-needed balm to soothe the troubled mind' Sunday Express A well-upholstered good read Daily Mail Classy, lavish entertainment ... literate pleasure Publishers Weekly Captivating ... The best sort of book to come home to ... Readers will undoubtedly hope Pilcher comes home to the typewriter again soon. New York Daily News
