The bestselling, heartwarming tale of innocence and youth during the 1930s re-issued with a stunning new jacket look
Rosamunde Pilcher has had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and a short story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel, The Shell Seekers, that captured the hearts of all who read it and won her international recognition as one of the best-loved storytellers of our time. Her bestselling novel, Coming Home, was made into a television film. Her most recent bestseller was Winter Solstice. She was awarded an O.B.E for services to literature in 2002.
Set around the time of WW II, Pilcher's tale of youthful friendship and romance spent 16 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Aug.)
