    I had such a tough time getting into this book It just doesn't start with a bang but just as a story Nothing spectacular to get you pulled into the story Just a storyAs I kept reading I wanted to know what was going to happen to this family Especially David Poor man had so much going for him to have the anchor in his life ripped away I loved the fact that it had no sex no violence no swearing well a little but nothing eye popping just a story I can actually tell people without an apology that I read this book and I liked it and I would recommend it to others Wow now that is something They even spoke highly of the state of marriage Yes it was published in 1999 but that is only 10 years old Yes they had the gay couple so it was modern The author just happened to have a healthy opinion of marriage and the whole loving each other partAnyway I recommend it to one and all Thanks Linda for lending it to me

    I am a big fan of Rosamunde Pilcher so when I saw this book by her son in the used book store I bought it He seems to be as talented an author as his mother but has a masculine and modern style This book is as much about overcoming grief as anything else Also being a gardener in another country incognito is also an interesting slant The interactions between the characters give the book depth There is also another theme of an attempted takeover of a small community company by a larger corporation that wants to keep it only as long as it makes a profit I only have two negatives to state In the earlier parts of the book I sometimes wondered if I could keep reading the 503 pages of the paperback However as it neared its end I stayed up an hour late to finish the book The other is the same with all British authors writing about Americans and Americans writing about British Sometimes the Americans say something which would be likely to be said by the British The same is true when American authors have the British say something likely to be said by Americans One example is a British author having an American sayI'll give it a go rather than I'll try it

    This was the debut novel for Robin Pilcher son of the better known writer Rosamunde Pilcher David a businessman who has been grieving and depressed flies to America for an important meeting Then he realises he has to start moving on for the sake of his children in ScotlandClever plotting as a business thread alternates with David's personal story While some of the scenes relating to the business went a little over my head it didn’t matter David who is an extremely likeable person discovers that he can make a difference in the lives of some lonely people The bulk of the story takes place over about a month and the pace works well The writing is excellent particularly the characterisation; the author evidently inherited his mother's gift in that respect There's believable dialogue and some strong emotion with one particularly moving scene towards the end The romance inevitable from fairly early on is low key only coming to resolution in the final chapterI enjoyed this very much both on first reading and on re reading nearly sixteen years later Highly recommended

    I read this while traveling and found it to be well written and enjoyable It is a good story and reminiscent of Rosamunde Pilcher's September One thing that I really liked about this book was the relative timelessness I kept wondering why they didn't just send an email or call on their mobile phones When one of the characters pulled out a floppy disk I had to look at the copyright date I didn't realize it was written in 1999 until I actually looked at the copyright dateThis is well written and good entertainment

    A nice light read Liked that it was a story about love without all the sexual scenes business ethics without being boring Amazed at how all around talented David was to the point that it became unbelievable Enjoyed the housekeeper with her humor as well as compassion Glad to see his comments to Jennifer to not give up on her marriage immediately

  6. Deborah Deborah says:

    I really enjoy read Robin Pilcher's work It is refreshing to read the point of view of a man about his everyday problems their love losses and finding a new path David Corstorphine cannot seem to come to terms of the death of his treasured wife He finds it difficult to function in his family business in Scottland and with his three small children The only comfort David seems to be able to find is working in the family gardenSent on business to New york David suffers a complete brake down he ends up taking on a job as a gardener which proves to be his redemption I enjoyed this story I like some of Pilcher's other work better It makes me wonder how the story would go if David had been a woman Would people be so understanding and forgiving? Pilcher writes an intriguing story with great detail

    I've read books by his Mum Rosamunde Pilcher and thought that if nothing else if he wrote anything like her this'd be a pleasant readExpectations that were than met; Robin is very much a writer in his own right and this story one that could've descended into typical cheesy romantic cliches doesn'tSure there are misunderstandings and secrets that could've been dealt with earlier but in Pilcher's hand they seem less like plot contrivances than they do the natural and simple unfolding of a story about a grief stricken man trying to navigate Life

  8. Wendy Wendy says:

    I like Pilcher This was his first novel and while it didn't wow me as others of his it was a passable read The storyline was a bit shallow and the characters were close to being multi dimensional but fell short The story is set between the UK and the US; Pilcher's dialog delivery of US characters is painful to read It's a crazy mix of UK speak and US speak and not realistic However we do feel the pain of loss and the promise of surviving without a loved one and making progress in life Read his other books before this one

  9. Linda Linda says:

    I really enjoyed thit book Robin Pilcher writes in the same style as his Mother and I really enjoyed all of her books that I could get at the library The characters become friends and very much like your own family This book was very hard for me to put down I wanted to just keep on reading Loved the contrast of atmosphere between Long Island NY and Scotland Can't wait to get started on the next book

  10. Kristen Kristen says:

    I think Robin Pilcher is a good solid writer in his own right regardless of who his famous mother is She has passed her talent down to her son in buckets I have waited for a long time for his next book only to learn that for various reasons there may not be another one so everyone please email this author and encourage him to keep writing I want His words are always comfortable and cosy like an old favourite sweater on a winter evening
