It is time for another search of our TBR shelves/piles for those sadly neglected books from the past.  Carole’s Random Life in Books is hosting this event.

Today’s feature is a book that has been in my Kindle since December 2015:  The Empty House, by Rosamunde Pilcher.  I always enjoy this author, so I don’t know why it is still languishing on my Kindle.  But here goes!  Time to read it.

Description: At twenty-seven, Virginia Keile had been through the most intense experiences life had to offer–a magical first love ending in heartbreak, a suitable marriage, motherhood, and widowhood. All she wanted now was to take her daughter and son to a seaside cottage in Cornwall and help them recover. But Virginia’s true love was there, waiting, hoping, praying that this time she would be strong enough to seize happiness, in The Empty House.

When you read a novel by Rosamunde Pilcher you enter a special world where emotions sing from the heart. A world that lovingly captures the ties that bind us to one another-the joys and sorrows, heartbreaks and misunderstandings, and glad, perfect moments when we are in true harmony. A world filled with evocative, engrossing, and above all, enjoyable portraits of people’s lives and loves, tenderly laid open for us…


What have you neglected/forgotten about on your shelves?



  1. I have not read Rosamunde Pilcher yet! I don’t even know how that is possible. I think that this sounds like a really emotional story. I do hope that you enjoy it, Laurel-Rain!


  2. I’m rereading her smaller books this year and this one is on my list. I know I’ve read it before and I remember really like it so it’s one I’m really looking forward to picking up. I love PIlcher’s style of writing. She just pulls me in. I hope you read it and love it!
