For the first time ever in Trade Paperback, Rosamunde Pilcher's beloved sequel to her classic #1 New York Times bestselling novel The Shell Seekers—a captivating story of life and love

With this mesmerizing story—the sequel to her enduring classic The Shell Seekers—Rosamunde Pilcher transports readers to her native Scotland. September is an extraordinary month there, when a brief but glorious summer is ending and the long, gray winter has yet to begin. It is a time of almost frenzied rounds of parties and houseguests and reels. A month when marriage is proposed and marriages break up, when even normally reticient Scots, Londoners, and Americans drink a little too much, dance a little too late into the night, when promises are made, hearts are broken, and long-buried family secrets can come to light.

With consummate skill, Rosamunde Pilcher begins her story as spring comes to Scotland and the hills burst into life, with a dance planned for September. The invitations summon home the group of people Violet Aird has cared for most in her long life. The oldest, strongest and wisest of them all, she sees Alexa, her vulnerable granddaughter, find love for the first time, while the decision to send her little grandson away to school is driving his parents even further apart. Far from them all is Pandora, the glamorous, exciting girl who ran away twenty years before. But as May turns to June and the summer commences, an inexorable fate propels them all towards Scotland as well as their inevitable—and often surprising—destinies.
