A magical novel of the connections of family -- real people & real values.

There was a time (probably still unpassed) when it was uncool for a younger person to admit to enjoying Rosamunde Pilcher’s modern-day fairy tales. But years after its initial success, The Shell Seekers remains the perfect comfort read for my grandmother, my mother and myself. Nobody else quite captures the gentle saga the way Pilcher does, telling her story in sweeping flashbacks to World War II and then returning to present-day to give the reader a full picture of protagonist Penelope and the troubled, yet ultimately warm and kind-hearted person she has become. Looking for a lovely escape? You couldn’t do much better than this title, which is as warm and inviting as a cup of tea on a cold Cornwall day.
