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

"A must for women fiction readers." --Booklist on The Children's Hour

"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." --Romantic Times 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

About Mrs Marcia Willett

Born in Somerset, in the west country of England, MARCIA WILLETT was the youngest of five girls. Her family was unconventional and musical, but Marcia chose to train as a ballet dancer. Unfortunately her body did not develop with the classical proportions demanded by the Royal Ballet, so she studied to be a ballet teacher. Her first husband was a naval officer in the submarine service, with whom she had a son, Charles, now married and a clergyman. Her second husband, Rodney, himself a writer and broadcaster, encouraged Marcia to write novels. The Way We Were is her tenth book to be published in the United States by Thomas Dunne Books.
