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!

If you like fairy stories where the star of the book meets Mr Right when she is 17 and then goes back 10 years later and "bumps" into him....(quite by accident you understand.) Utter c--p. Nothing like the author's other books and fortunately very short. Written in 1973 you enter a world of "ghastly mistakes", egg and spoon races and Nannies who Rule!
Would you buy a frig if you found the cottage you had rented for a month didn't have one? Would you instantly agree to install a pool at the Scottish home if your 8 year old comments that you haven't got one? Would you buy a big cardboard box of groceries in London before boarding a train to Scotland with two young children and many suit cases? But then this one is not used to looking after her own children and in the cottage gathers up dirty clothes and clean to wash. Did people still wear bathing caps in 1973 to swim in the sea. Her deceased husband sounds like Lord Lucan and her old love like Farmer Giles. but Lady C's Lover it's not. Utter rubbish, even worse than the old Mills and Boons...can't think how I read right through it tot he end..oh yes..it's a short book

Rosamunde Pilcher has written some truly memorable books-The Shell Seekers, Coming Home, Winter Solstice, September. Proper page-turners, with good depth of characterisation, and excellent description. Books where one was sad to leave the characters behind. Alas, not this sorry little tale about a young girl thwarted out of her first love by an ambitious mother, marrying a "rotter" at her behest, and finally returning to Cornwall to meet-up with "the hero" once more, and live happily ever after. Not only is the story so trite and weak, but it is also so dated. Hard to believe that, even as late as 1973, the hero and heroine would light-up cigarette after cigarette.
Sorry Rosamunde!

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!

Having just read Coming Home and the Shellseekers, what a bitter disappointment this was. I was hoping for more of the same but quite frankly, it is as though this was written by a completely different author! Having been reading for about 90 minutes I was astonished that my Kindle was telling me that I was over 50% through the book. When I checked the Amazon website I saw that this book has only 182 pages. I then realised why the story was so rushed and lacking in the author's usual detail. Nowehere near as good as some of her other books. And what a swizz for the price! This was more like a short story.

Having read and enjoyed winter solstice, coming home and September I was hoping for another story which would satisfy and charm. Sadly this book fails, it is a thin and predictable tale in the manner of mills and boon. Can only assume this was one of Ms Pilcher's earlier attempts and she later found her style and developed her writing style.

Didn't realise it was such a short book. No indication given as to the length & size of the book.
Good story, as always with this author.
