Today’s meme is all about books we love. My Favorite Reads is hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.
As usual, I scanned the older bookshelves, and today, that meant the ones in the hallway. There they are, just waiting on the shelves, as if they’re saying “pick me.”
Rosamunde Pilcher is one of those cozy authors whose books are usually set near her home in Scotland. Coming Home was published in 1997, and there isn’t even a blurb on Amazon.
Pilcher’s book teems with marvelous, memorable characters—people we believe in, people we care about…In telling the story of Judith Dunbar and her loved ones, Pilcher writes with warmth, wisdom, and clear-eyed insight about every family. This is a totally involving story of coming of age, coming to terms with both love and sadness, and, in every sense of the words, Coming Home.
Why I Chose This Book:
I haven’t read this one in awhile, but lately I’ve been drawn to the sentimental moments in the past. Those times when books were savored just because they told wonderful stories.
And lately, with all the bookish blog things, I’m noticing that reading has become like a race. To see how many I can read in as short a time as possible; moving out of my comfort zone to other genres; and writing (and posting) reviews as quickly as possible.
These are all good things, and I’m glad I’m doing them. But once in awhile, I just want to curl up and read.
Pilcher is just the ticket for those times.
I hope you’ll stop by and share your own favorites this week.
