Have you read The Shell Seekers?

Happy Friday!

I have just started re-reading The Shell Seekers

by Rosamunde Pilcher as St. Martin’s Griffin is

bringing out a new edition this May.  I vividly

remember reading it when it first came out and

I was curious to see if it still held up; I wanted to

see if it affected the me who I am today as much

as it did the me then.  So far I am just over a

hundred pages in and I have to say it does hold

up.  I still really care about Penelope Keeling, her

daughter Olivia and still really dislike her other

daughter Nancy and her son Noel.  Yes, it is

definitely set in another time (I guess it is a

historical novel now!) but the storytelling still

works and I think it is a book worth reading.

If you want to be taken away to a different time

and place, drawn into the sometimes happy sometimes

fraught life of others and just revel in a tale well told,

give The Shell Seekers a try.

Have a great weekend,


The Shell Seekers
