I’m so glad the days now will be getting longer! Winter, you don’t know it, but your days are numbered!
This is one of my favorite books (love of all things UK showing here). I own a copy and reread it every few years at Christmas time. It has the understated drama of Pilcher’s writing, life-like characters, and the beauty of Scotland at Christmas. Rosamunde Pilcher retired from writing in 2000; this was the last of her novels, which is disappointing. I consider it her best and like it much better than her perennially popular The Shell Seekers. September is another of my favorites.
