very enjoyable Christmas book full of practical celebration ideas for readers.
also, offering insights into the personal life of Rosamunde and her family that endear her to her readers...
I wish I had found this book last Christmas, before my mother died. She and I shared a love of Rosamunde Pilcher's books, and we both owned four of them (The Shell Seekers, September, Coming Home and WInter Solstice) which we frequently re-read. Pilcher's books are always filled with characters I wish I knew, houses I wish I could visit. I've traveled twice in Scotland, and Edinburgh is my favorite any country. The story at the end of this book, set on the opposite side of the Firth of...more
What a fast lovely read. The first two thirds of the books tells the personal side of Rosamunde Pilcher. Just a touch of her childhood, her marriage in 1946 and then the Christmas celebration with her family. There are recipes, the lyrics to carols and lots of pictures. And, the last part of the book is a tender story written by her. It was the perfect way to end the book.

This beautiful book provides a glimpse into Rosamunde Pilcher's world. Readers see firsthand her holiday traditions through numerous pictures, reminiscenses by Rosamunde, recipes and other interesting tidbits of information. The book also includes my favorite short story by Rosamunde, "Miss Cameron at Christmas." Lovely and nostalgic, this beautiful book will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit.
I own this in German, and I read it every Christmas. Just the right sort of collection of Christmas memories, traditions, recipes, pictures, and a story. Rosamunde Pilcher may not be very highbrow, but she has a lovely quiet style in storytelling. Perfect, beautiful escapism.
Here's another one I pull out year after year, but usually in late September/early October, when it is starting to cool down and I am feeling like Christmas. I know it's early - but not for our family!!! Great stories, good recipes and Christmassy feelings.
Who wouldn't love this little book! Rosamunde Pilcher is delightful!
