The Shell Seekers
The Shell Seekers | Rosamunde Pilcher
At the end of a long and useful life, Penelope Keeling's prized possession is The Shell Seekers, painted by her father, and symbolizing her unconventional life, from bohemian childhood to wartime romance. When her grown children learn their grandfather's work is now worth a fortune, each has an idea as to what Penelope should do. But as she recalls the passions, tragedies, and secrets of her life, she knows there is only one answer...and it lies in her heart, in this beloved Cornwall novel from Rosamunde Pilcher.

When I heard this was one of my grandma‘s favorite books I assumed it would be dated. Instead I found a wonderful novel about the complicated relationship between mothers & their kids. It‘s a story that spans WWII, an artist‘s life in Cornwall, & a life-altering trip to Ibiza. There were so many lines I loved & the characters of Penelope & Olivia will stay w/me.

“Like a vessel that has been empty for too long, she felt herself filled with peace.”

Haley Atwell's Narration is perfection! And of all the covers of various editions of The Shell Seekers, this Audible one is my favorite. It captures the description of painting Title takes its name from.

While this is probably the most famous of RP's Novels I hadn't ever read it. It has everything you expect: Spunky Women of a Certain Age, Family Sagas, & Cozy Settings. In a few places It's a bit dated.⬇️

#RosamundePilcherForAllSeasons

Crinoline_Laphroaig My favorite thing as always is her descriptions of Gardens:
"The conservatory was stone- floored, furnished with basket chairs and stools and a lot of faded cretonne cushions. It was as well very warm, leafy with greenery and pot plants, and heavy with the scent of freesias, which grew in abundance and were Penelope‘s favourite flower."

“The taxi, an old Rover smelling of old cigarette smoke, trundled along the empty country road at an unhurried pace.”

I am loving this book the second time around as much as the first. I love her descriptions of marvelous meals, cozy places and wonderful people.

1. Not sure if it‘s considered an “event”, but I remember where I was when I heard that Elvis Presley had died. I was 11 at the time and remember my mom running out into our front yard to tell me. Graceland was only about 1.5 hours away from where we lived.

2. Unfortunately Amazon for ebooks

Oh this is soooo good. It's a long audiobook but it's worth the 20+ hours as the narration is good and it kept me interested. Each character's history is backgrounded for a good feeling of where they come from and why. I loved the main character, Penelope and hope to be as classy as she at her age. Highly recommend!

This book was a full-out family drama, with very distinctive characters and ones that you couldn‘t help but love. The flashbacks to provide background for Penelope also provided so much insight to her decisions and I loved how that was woven through the book. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this via audiobook although it did take a bit to finally get into it.

A bit of a soap opera, featuring:
*ungrateful offspring
*a new gardener
*long-lost pre-Raphaelite art
*the Blitz
*a dashing lover
*unexpected munificence

Quite a fun read until the last 100 pages or so which dragged as the plot suddenly vanished and everything was tied up in a bow.

This family saga is a hesitant pick because it was, at times, too sappy for my taste. Everyone falls in love so quickly. All the characters are either “good” or “bad” (good women are always thin and beautiful). But the story is interesting, and the writing is lovely and cozy. It will make you long to be snuggled in a seaside cottage with a thick book and a mug of tea.

Awful 80s cover but fabulous story. This hits my sweet spot: multigenerational story with lovely but not flowery writing. Plus art and WWII and family drama. It has been on my TBR for years but I finally got off my duff and read it. Broke my heart a few times but in the end, I was so happy to be in this world and didn‘t want it to end.

Christine Maybe it‘s just me, but I feel like that cover has kind of come back around to coolness again! Well maybe not the font, but I love the florals. 😜 2y

I also said I wasn‘t going to add any non-fiction but I ended up adding two I thought would be uplifting and guess what? They ended up being #doublebookspin and #triplebookspin.

Oh, Rosamunde Pilcher can feel so dated but in a good way, when romance was about the openness of people‘s hearts and second chances... I liked this loooong story and am glad I finally got a glimpse of #Cornwall and #WW2 and #podmoresthatch and early 20th century painting...

I went for a browse around the Goodwill Bookstore today and came across the hardcover for The Shell Seekers. My Kobo ebook does not have these lovely printed chapters or chapter headings! I couldn't walk away from that now could I? And at $3.95 a book I also grabbed her Winter Solstice and a brand new Bryce Courtenay, Annie Proulx and a Margaret Drabble. 💖

I just learned that one of my favorite authors passed away last week at the age of 94. Although she had been retired as an author since 2000, Ms. Pilcher leaves behind some much-loved historical fiction and family sagas that linger long after they‘ve been read. If you‘ve never read her but would like to, these four are a good place to start.

R.I.P. Rosamunde Pilcher, and thank you for many hours of reading pleasure. ♥️♥️♥️

Thanks for the giveaway offer @DGRachel and congratulations!

I always recommend ANY books by the author Rosamunde Pilcher. I first read her (and this particular book) years ago as a teenager/young adult. Her books are wonderfully descriptive (usually family) sagas that always left me feeling good, pondering and wanting more. I devoured her entire booklist and missed her when she retired. Highly recommend her stuff. ❤️

I'm fully recharged after a delightful weekend. An outdoor picnic, a wander through the woods and yesterday a stop for a Sunday afternoon respite. We merrily munched away on scones and croissants and sipped on frothy lattes. After jotting down a few memories from the weekend, we idly people watched, then propped our feet up on the chair rails and tucked into our respective novels.

Heading to Carova, NC for the weekend. Yes, I'm leaving one beach to go to another. 😂 While the husband drives, my traveling companion sits in my lap. This was a birthday present from my best friend. It is one of her favorite books which makes it a perfect gift for me!!! #beachread

When Sadie saw the tagged title, naturally she thought it referred to tortoiseshell. 😸 #publishedinthe1980s #junebookbugs #catsoflitsy #tortitude
