'Took me to the sun-kissed beaches and wildness of Cornwall. A beautiful story of love lost, interwoven with family dramas and lasting friendships. I have lived the book with each page turned and was sorry to say goodbye to all of the characters at the end' Reader review Rosamunde Pilcher's phenomenal and heart-warming bestseller exploring the nuances of family drama Artist's daughter Penelope Keeling can look back on a full and varied life: a Bohemian childhood in London and Cornwall, an unhappy wartime marriage, and the one man she truly loved. She has brought up three children - and learned to accept them as they are. Yet she is far too energetic and independent to settle sweetly into pensioned-off old-age. And when she discovers that her most treasured possession, her father's painting, The Shell Seekers, is now worth a small fortune, it is Penelope who must make the decisions that will determine whether her family can continue to survive as a family, or be split apart. READERS ADORE THE SHELL SEEKERS: 'A beautifully crafted story of the intricacies of family lives stretched over time. The characters and settings are so well described it's as if the details were plucked from my imagination' Reader review 'One of my favourite novels. It is a book I turn to again and again, whenever I am dejected or in need of comfort, and in doing so, restore some of my equilibrium' Reader review 'Excellent book . . . Rosamunde Pilcher never fails' Reader review 'I have read this book so many times and each time I read it I'm transported into the story as if it was the first time I had read it' Reader review 'The book grabs your attention on page one and keeps it until the last page. Not only is this an enjoyable read, it's also a compelling read. I really struggled to put this book down' Reader review PRAISE FOR ROSAMUNDE PILCHER: 'A beautiful, haunting story . . . that will tug at your heart strings' Prima 'A huge warm saga . . . A deeply satisfying story written with love and confidence' Maeve Binchy in The New York Times Book Review 'A long, beguiling saga, typically English . . . Splendid' Mail on Sunday
