Day 4 of the 30 day blog journal-Favorite Book

Favorite Book has got to be The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher (see the widget to the left showing all of her best sellers) I love the style of her writing and all of her books are "fun" reads!

See a very accurate review of the book that I found:

As this absorbing saga of a modern English family opens, 64-year-old Penelope Keeling is returning to her country house following a heart attack, and her three adult children have varying reactions to the news. The narrative is actually a series of deftly interwoven vignettes that shift back and forth in time; each chapter centers on one of the principal players in the family's history. The unifying thread is an oil painting entitled "The Shell Seekers," done by Penelope's father. Pilcher's characters are well-drawn, real, and engrossing people. A thoroughly charming book for most fiction collections. Troll Book Club main selection.Maria A. Perez-Stable, Western Michigan Univ. Libs., Kalamazoo
