"We're all pilgrims, ' he said thoughtfully. "One way or another, aren't we? Always searching for something."

Twelfth night - time to put away the Christmas angel. A new year dawns, and everything seems to be falling into place for Dossie. Her son Clem and his adorable five-year-old son Jakey have moved to Cornwall to be closer to her. She runs her own successful catering business. All she needs now is some better luck in her romantic life.

Complementing Dossie's rather unconventional family set-up is the wonderfully eccentric Janna: a warm-hearted, generous woman who looks after the quirky nuns of the local convent - and little Jakey. With humour, kindness and the support of friendship, they form a tight bond.

But the Sisters' life as they know it is thrown into doubt when an avaricious property developer starts prowling around their beautiful, historic home. Will this close-knit unit who so depend on each other still
be together next Christmas? And what will they have learnt about the true meaning of family, and about having somewhere you really belong? Find out in Marcia Willett's touching and timeless holiday tale, Christmas in Cornwall.

Review quote

Like Rosamunde Pilcher and Maeve Binchy, Willett creates such fully dimensional characters that readers feel as if they should phone or e-mail them to keep in touch. "Rocky Mountain News on A Week in Winter"

Tender and moving, Willet's tale expertly weaves a family's past and present together to illustrate the strength of familial bonds. A memorable and emotional read to be savored. "RT Book Reviews on The Children's Hour"

Readers will enjoy the heartwarming ending, vibrant characters, and the excellent depiction of the English countryside. "Booklist (starred review) on A Summer in the Country"

Thoroughly engrossing, with richly drawn characters, a mysterious locale, and a beautifully crafted plot. "The Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) on A Week in Winter"

A domestic novel of quiet yearning, haunting memories and onerous guilt. The friendships at the novel's heart are believable and warming. "Publishers Weekly on The Way We Were"

Wonderfully, fully-developed will be pleased with this strong family drama. "Midwest Book Review on The Birdcage ""
