by Rosamunde Pilcher (Author), Lynn Redgrave (Narrator). Gosh, I truly do love a good Rosamunde Pilcher book. What will I do when I run out?? I try to only read them every once in a while and savor each one.

by Rosamunde Pilcher (Author), Lynn Redgrave (Narrator). This book is filled with antiques, my love, and the south west of England. I want to visit so badly some day. What I don't understand is why was it so acceptable in the mid 1900s and earlier to become romantically involved with 2nd cousins? It just sounds ghastly and unthinkable in these days of mobility.

Home Rosamunde Pilcher The Day of the Storm. The day of the storm, . 4. At the back of the house was a little patio, and then a long garden sloped up to a distant hedge. I looked at the patio and could see Mollie out there, entertaining her friends, with cane furniture set out on the flagstones, and martinis to drink, served from an expensive glass trolley. I said, It’s a perfect house, and meant it. But I did not love it as I loved Boscarva. Perhaps because it was too perfect. We stood in the elegant out-of-place drawing room and eyed each other.

In 1949, Pilcher's first book, a romance novel, was published by Mills and Boon, under the pseudonym Jane Fraser. The Day of the Storm (1975). Wild Mountain Thyme (1979). She published a further ten novels under that name. In 1955, she also began writing under her real name with Secret to Tell  . I was in London by the early afternoon, but the dark day had lost its shape and meaning, and I could not think what I was meant to do with what remained of it. In the end I got a taxi and went to Walton Street to seek out Stephen Forbes. I found him upstairs, going through a box of books out of an old house which had just been sold up. There was no one else with him, and as I appeared at the top of the stairs he stood up and came towards me, thinking that I was a potential customer. When he saw that I was not, his manner changed.

Thanks, Rosamunde Pilcher! It's definitely one of the better short Pilcher books, but suffers a bit, as all the . My book is an Omnibus that contains both of these books by Pilcher.

Thanks, Rosamunde Pilcher! It's definitely one of the better short Pilcher books, but suffers a bit, as all the short ones do, because of its length. Everything just happens so quickly! I used to count the number of times a couple had been in each other's presence in the short Pilcher novels before suddenly being mad in love with each other, and it was always, like, four. The Day of the Storm was published 12 years before The Shell Seekers, but I was pleasantly surprised to find numerous similarities between the two books. Both have settings in Cromwell, Porthkerris.

Luncheon had been a sustaining, homely meal, eaten at a round table set in the bay window of the big dining room ner was a different affair altogether. The long, polished table in the middle of the room was set for the five of us, with fine linen mats, and old silver and glass sparkling in the candlelight. Everybody, it seemed, was expected to change in honour of this apparently nightly ritual

After reading Winter Solstice, I was hungry for more so I got The Shell Seekers, what a great story and inspiration, so I got Coming Home which kept me on my toes, just a little disappointed to wait to read almost 900 pages to see if the characters will ride happy into the sunset but in all it was pretty good book. Now everything else I read from Rosemunde can't make it not even close to those three books. In this particular The Day of the Storm, Oh my Goad, she drags the main character to be this out of touch sulky woman, I figured out the whole thing by the middle of the book and she still was clueless and then the end comes up so quickly that there is no longing for anything but boredom. Seriously it is hard to think that she was the one who wrote the 3 books above....no inspiration at all. Same old place Cornwall almost the same plot, painter and his pictures......bla bla bla!

What I don't understand is why was it so acceptable in the mid 1900s and earlier to become romantically involved with 2nd cousins? It just sounds ghastly and unthinkable in these days of mobility. In this book, the main character, Rebecca, becomes very friendly with her grandfather's grandson (from a mistress). ickie

I love Pilcher's descriptions of the sea, the drizzle and winds, the old stoves and teas...

The book starts out quite interesting, Rebecca finds her mother after many years and learns of relatives she didn't know existed, then goes to Cornwall to meet them. Everyone is so nice, none of the characters are developed enough that you care about them and there is a lot of rain and wind, no one calls it a storm, sorry I didn't care for this book.

Rosamunde's books are comfortable and comforting, with mostly good people doing their best and taking care of each other. The settings in England and Scotland, particularly with descriptions of scenery and some of the older homes, are interesting and fun fun to read about.as are the gardens full of flowers. A relaxing, homey feeling makes her books a ones to turn to when you need to calm down and relax.

Our protagonist, Rebecca, has lived a rather bumpy life due to her extremely unconventional mother. However, Rebecca has at last achieved a state of peace, working in a bookstore and living in her own tiny flat in London, only to have everything stirred up by a summons to her dying mother's bedside where she learns of a family she didn't know existed. Rebecca boards a train to Cornwall to meet this family and notify them of her mother's death. Her arrival stirs up a hornet's nest of secrets and hidden agendas and improbable circumstances. Though one is caught up in finding out what happens next, this is not "high" fiction and can be a bit of a bodice ripper. The mystery part saves it, though, and ultimately I enjoyed this read.

I thought I had read everything Pilcher ever wrote but I had somehow missed The Day of the Storm. It was a lovely, nostalgic escape, featuring a young, female first-person narrator who solves a few mysteries in her ancestry and, of course, falls in love, most unexpectedly. Set in the late 1970s in Cornwall, it is full of rich imagery --- the seaside town, the family mansion, and the raging storm which gives us the title. I wish Rosamunde Pilcher was still writing!

Rosamund Pilcher is one of my favorite authors of all time...this book, as most of her do, has a quiet storyline with unique characters that builds slowly to a incredible climax you may not see coming.
After reading three of her books, I was excited to read more; however, this one was a huge disappointment. I felt no affection for the protagonist, the characters were not well developed, the ending was quite predictable. I'm reluctant to read another book of hers.
