This was my first Rosamunde Pilcher and certainly won't be the last! September is essentially the story of two families from rural Scotland and their acquaintances, and is told over 5 months, building to the climax you know is coming right from the outset. Each person brought into the storyline is incredibly well-crafted, as is the book as a whole. There is great attention to detail both in the Scottish scenery which is the backdrop to the drama unfolding, and in the lives of the characters. The characters themselves are instantly memorable, yet human, and make it hard to put this book down. I will be recommending it to anyone looking for a good read, and look forward to working my way through the rest of her books!
