Remembering Rosamunde Pilcher

Bestselling author Rosamunde Pilcher passed away last week at the age of 94. We are honored to have published many of her books, including THE SHELL SEEKERS, SEPTEMBER, COMING HOME, WINTER SOLSTICE, and many more.

Rosamunde Pilcher had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and short-story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel THE SHELL SEEKERS that captured the hearts of all who read it and won her international recognition as one of the most-loved storytellers of our time. She was an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and lived in Dundee, Scotland.

Happy #BookBday (5/12/15 Edition)

Oh, what a lovely day for a #BookBday! Today we celebrate:

THE ANCHORESS by Robyn Cadwallader
A startling and strange debut novel set in 11th century England about a young girl’s desperate choice to isolate herself from the world. “Cadwallader’s vivid period descriptions set a stunning backdrop for this beautiful first novel as Sarah rejects a larger world that will not allow her to live on her own terms and goes about creating a smaller one that will. Sarah’s path will intrigue readers at the crossroads of historical fiction, spirituality, and even feminism as she faces the internal and external pressures on women of the Middle Ages.” — Booklist, starred review

THE SHELL SEEKERS by Rosamund Pilcher
Pilcher’s beloved, #1 New York Times bestselling family saga—a captivating story of life and love—is now available for the first time ever in trade paperback! “A huge warm saga… A deeply satisfying story written with love and confidence.”
