Ingen kan ge känslan av att komma hem som Rosamunde Pilcher.
As with every Rosamunde Pilcher story - long or short - I began to read and couldn't stop * Lucinda Riley, bestselling author of the Seven Sisters series * A PLACE LIKE HOME is a wonderful treat for fans of Rosamunde Pilcher's writing. Each story resonates with the echoes of a voice that is at once familiar and beloved. Reading this collection of love stories does indeed feel just like returning to a place like home. * Fiona Valpy, bestselling author of The Dressmaker's Gift * 'Reading this anthology of short stories was like being wrapped in a cashmere shawl and travelling back to the recent past where people drank sherry before dinner and seemed to have more time. Highly recommended reading that will lift you during this difficult period we are experiencing. Find a saggy, chintz armchair, a log fire and a glass of sherry and indulge . . .' * Angela Petch, bestselling author of The Tuscan Secret * An antidote to challenging times, this set of stories from a much-loved author has a comforting nostalgic feel - cosy and reassuring - with Rosamunde Pilcher's signature insight into domestic hopes and yearnings, taking us into a gentler world. * Sarah Maine, bestselling author of Beyond the Wild River * How lyrical it is, yet how deeply the stories touched me. I've often found it difficult to concentrate on a long novel but these stories are perfect for the times, exquisite little gems of romantic escapism taking me completely away to another time and place. * Phillipa Ashley, bestselling author of A PERFECT CORNISH ESCAPE * I absolutely adored A PLACE LIKE HOME. It took me back to a different time and place of pure, simple delight. It's so deliciously retro and I mean that with oodles of compliments. You can feel the warmth of the Aga, the smell of a new bottle of scent, the fragrant sip of a glass of Sherry. It's such a balm. I feel so lucky to have this collection sitting on my shelf to dip in and out of. It's a keeper. * Lorna Cook, bestselling author of THE FORGOTTEN VILLAGE * We need stories like these right now! I love the way Rosamunde Pilcher gets so cleverly to the heart of the matter in her stories; she is truly the Queen of Emotion. Reading her stories took me back in time to when I read the superb The Shell Seekers. She has always combined love and landscape in an inspirational way. * Rosanna Ley, author of FROM VENICE WITH LOVE * I loved every word. I honestly wasn't sure what decade I was reading in, and it didn't matter - the characters, their emotions, their hopes and loves felt completely timeless and so entirely compelling. Each story drew me immediately into its world: Scotland, the Mediterranean, a misty beach on horseback . . . I was immersed. I have to make a special mention of 'Skelmerton' - I felt like it could so easily have become an entire novel, yet worked so beautifully in this form - but there wasn't a single tale I didn't relish. And no surprise - it was Rosamunde Pilcher writing, after all. What an incredible storyteller. * Jenny Ashcroft, author of Under the Golden Sun * Wonderfully comforting and uplifting. If you love Harriet Evans or Lucinda Riley's books, you're sure to love Rosamunde Pilcher too. * Sarra Manning, Red Magazine * This collection of romantic short stories are the absolute sticky-toffee-pudding of the genre. A glowing preponderance of happy endings leaves you feeling like the blissful, newly proposed-to Sally who thinks she has sailed "into harbour after a long, lonely journey". Aah. * Daily Mail * With her lyrical turns of phrase and uncanny eye for detail, Pilcher will whisk you away on a whistle-stop tour of glittering Mediterranean islands, brooding Scottish highlands and leafy Cotswold villages . . . Pilcher's prose is reassuringly gentle and unexpectedly profound. * Buzz Magazine * Fans of Rosamunde Pilcher will love this collection of her most enduring short stories. H
