Book Description

29 Jun 2006
Virginia Keile has a secret dream. To have a second chance at loving the tall, handsome Cornish farmer she met - and foolishly lost - the heady summer she was a debutante. Life has taught Virginia a great deal in twenty-seven years - about wedding a titled bachelor picked out by her mother, about a lonely marriage that ended in her husband's accidental death, and about nearly losing her children to her husband's mother and bossy Nanny. Now she has come back to picturesque Cornwall to rent a battered seaside cottage. For herself and for the children. And to discover if this time she can fill an empty house with love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Read By An Ace Storyteller 29 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Rosamunde Pilcher's The Empty House is another heartwarming story about how a widow, Virginia Kelie returns to Cornwall with her children and how whilst there she meets again the handsome farmer she left behind all those years ago. Once again, Rosamunde Pilcher manages to makes us all laugh and cry and experience many emotions. The Empty House is a book which one surely shouldn't miss!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 20 April 2012
By Charlie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a long-standing devotee of Rosamunde Pilcher I was not disappointed with this novel.
She has a particular style and her writing is a joy to read - also, of course, she tells a good
story. In paperback, it is particularly good for reading in bed or slipping into the handbag
for quiet moments when left waiting!
