Summary

One of Rosamunde Pilcher's classic novels.

Flora and Rose are identical twins who do not know of each other's existence. Rose has been raised by her frivolous mother with the glossy international jet set. Flora has spent her childhood in the beauty and quiet of her father's Cornish cottage. And then, by chance, they meet.

The encounter seems heaven-sent to Rose, who longs to escape from a man she no longer desires. Flora can free her, and, in taking her sister's place, her uneventful life is changed forever. She finds drama and danger - and glimpses a happiness beyond her wildest dreams.

A Lovely Rich Light Read

Enjoyable narrative with an interesting plot with a memorable cast of diverse characters. Really enjoyed this book. Would have loved to find out more about Flora's family and what happened after.

A lovely escapist tale

For Pilcher fans this is another example of her tried and tested formula - a love story set in a remote location and populated (mostly!) with warm characters and with description enough to picture it all vividly. As a book to fall asleep to nightly and look forward to the next instalment next night it was a pleasure. The narrator was excellent.

All a bit breathy

Story line is quite good, but if a twist at the end, however the delivery of the reader is all about breathy and fraught...as if permanently building to a climax, yet no climax comes, this is maintained. After a while it’s a bit exhausting and you become distracted.
