From the Publisher:
There are only two men in Emma's life--her father, a remote artist who leaves her in boarding school and sees her every few years, and Christo, who has been her stepbrother for a few months and now wants to get to know her. But until Emma can understand what she means to them, there can be no room for love.
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...

Born in Lelant, Cornwall, Rosamunde Pilcher has lived most of her life in Scotland, with both locations figuring prominently in her novels. Educated at a number of private schools, Pilcher served with the Women's Royal Navy Service from 1943 to 1946, the same year she married Graham Hope Pilcher. A mother of two sons and two daughters, she began writing romances in 1949 with the publishing house Mills and Boon, and dabbled in playwriting shortly thereafter. In 1955, the same year her play "The Dashing White Sergeant" was produced in London, "A Secret to Tell" appeared, the first novel she published as Rosamunde Pilcher. She would go on to publish many more novels, including her highly successful romance "The Shell Seekers" (1987), one of her many suspenseful family sagas to feature themes of love, loss, and redemption. Her son Robin made his literary debut in 1999 with the romance novel "An Ocean Apart."
