Winter Solstice | Rosamunde Pilcher
58 posts | 28 read | 28 to read
In Winter Solstice Rosamunde Pilcher brings her readers into the lives of five very different people.... Elfrida Phipps, once of London's stage, moved to the English village of Dibton in hopes of making a new life for herself. Gradually she settled into the comfortable familiarity of village life -- shopkeepers knowing her tastes, neighbors calling her by name -- still she finds herself lonely. Oscar Blundell gave up his life as a musician in order to marry Gloria. They have a beautiful daughter, Francesca, and it is only because of their little girl that Oscar views his sacrificed career as worthwhile. Carrie returns from Australia at the end of an ill-fated affair with a married man to find her mother and aunt sharing a home and squabbling endlessly. With Christmas approaching, Carrie agrees to look after her aunt's awkward and quiet teenage daughter, Lucy, so that her mother might enjoy a romantic fling in America. Sam Howard is trying to pull his life back together after his wife has left him for another. He is without home and without roots, all he has is his job. Business takes him to northern Scotland, where he falls in love with the lush, craggy landscape and set his sights on a house. It is the strange rippling effects of a tragedy that will bring these five characters together in a large, neglected estate house near the Scottish fishing town of Creagan. It is in this house, on the shortest day of the year, that the lives of five people will come together and be forever changed. Rosamunde Pilcher's long-awaited return to the page will warm the hearts of readers both old and new. Winter Solstice is a novel of love, loyalty and rebirth.

I‘ve been solo wrangling progeny this weekend and have yet to be reunited with my mister due to bad weather ferry cancellations. So. Chocolate Eruption cake. Comfort read. Brandy.

I did NOTHING AT ALL today but finish reading this wonderful book!

I allowed myself the entire day to relax and overcome this horrible, horrible cough that has plagued me for too long. Not caring that I had things to do - I just read. I loved this story - it was VERY Maeve Binchy!

LeslieO I just reread this. So wonderful. 2w

Making this my first book of the year - the solstice has technically passed, but the flap on the book says the solstice is a time of hope and renewal - kind of like a new year, so I find it fitting!

Rosamunde Pilcher was my favorite discovery in 2019. Loved this story of found families set in Scotland. I love her complex, real characters.

ljuliel This book was so good. The first of hers I read was a The Shell Seekers. Such a beautiful story. It starts a bit slow, but is very good. (edited) 3w
MaureenMc @ljuliel The Shell Seekers was the first Pilcher I read, earlier this year! I just adored it. 😊 3w

How appropriate that I found this delightful read at used bookstore this week. While I didn't have time to reread it this year; I'm excited to add it to my Winter collection. Remember loving all the descriptions of Scotland.
Putting on my TBR for next year's lead up to Winter Solstice. 🎄🌌📚

If you haven‘t read a Pilcher book, give one a try. If you like Maeve Binchy, you‘d like Pilcher‘s stories. This book takes a handful of people and brings them together as a family of sorts . They all end up in a magical old manor house in Scotland , snowed in for Christmas week and all the festivities. You always get the sense that things will work themselves out somehow in these books. Very likable characters,and wonderful writing. 5⭐️

ljuliel @Andrew65 I remember reading The Shell Seekers way back when it first came out, and thinking what a magical story it was. I need to read it again, as right now, this one ranks even higher. It could be because I‘ve forgotten most of her first one, or because I listened to this on audio. I may have a new favorite narrator. Jilly Bond narrated this and did an absolutely wonderful job. 1mo

I read Rosamunde Pilcher‘s Winter Solstice over the holidays, not having read her books since I adored The Shell Seekers way back when I was in high school. I‘m glad to report that I still love her novels! This one reminds me a great deal of Louise Penny (cozy vibe and great atmosphere) mixed with Maggie O‘Farrel‘s This Must be the Place (complex tapestry of characters that weave together). ❤️

Certain times of year I have more time to read. The holidays are one of those; upside of not having big family celebrations. My garden is asleep. No scurrying out at crack of dawn to pull weeds and water. From Winter Solstice to Plough Monday I do bare minimum of housework. I celebrate by reading. This year I finished 22 books 📚📚📚

Today's the darkest day of the year, it's special but a relief as well. This picture's from several days ago, we haven't seen the sun at all these past days & I'm already waiting for more light. But still, also savoring the unique atmosphere this day creates.

Rosamunde Pilcher is perfect for when you want a cozy, slightly old-fashioned story with a happy ending. Her books are like Prozac to me when life gets stressful. This one did not disappoint. I'll be keeping it around for re-reads.
