A PLACE LIKE HOME by Rosamunde Pilcher

A Place Like Home: Short Stories

Published posthumously, this is a collection of short stories by the wonderful Rosamunde Pilcher. Never before in book form, Aoife Inman has searched through the British library to collect short stories that Rosamunde Pilcher had written for magazines between 1976 and 1984. In all, there are 15 short stories.

I was a lover of The Shell Seekers and should probably read it again as an adult. Each story is of a woman and what having a home and what companionship means to them. Remember these stories were written in a different time. So most of these ladies are looking for new love or trying to reignite old flames.

Uncomplicated and sweet, and sometimes we need that. Pure Escapism.

  1. Dear Patty,
    we see it like you, Pilcher’s texts are pure escapism. Pilcher’s “The Shell Seekers” became a bestseller in Germany where you even could find Pilcher-Fan-Clubs. If we remember it correctly, she was more successful in Germany than in the UK.
    On the other hand, she had a horrible reputation of been sweet and writing clichΓ©s. When we read “The Shell Seekers” we found it much better than we had exspected. Nevertheless Pilcher writes women’s literature. There is no man I know who likes Pilcher’s books.
    Thanks and cheers
