Publisher's Summary

Five years in the writing, Coming Home is the tale Rosamunde Pilcher believes to be the capstone of a lifetime of writing. Her most ambitious and compelling work yet, Coming Home is a vast canvas, and a vividly drawn portrait of an era close to us in time, yet now disappeared.Like The Shell Seekers, Coming Home is an intensely personal story. Like September, it teems with marvelous, memorable characters. Coming Home is a story to be savored, an old-fashioned tale hardly anyone knows how to tell anymore. In telling the story of Judith Dunbar and her loved ones, Rosamunde Pilcher describes each family member with warmth, wisdom and clear-eyed insight. Coming Home is a totally involving story of a young woman's coming of age, coming to terms with both love and sadness, and, in every sense of the word, Coming Home.

Good News, Bad News

I wish I could have downloaded an unabridged version of this novel. I have read the book, and this abridgement omits many details that substantially enrich the story. On the other hand, Ms. Redgrave does a very fine job as narrator; she creates distinctive voices for the characters--one almost forgets that one woman is doing all the parts. My final criticism of this recording is of the absurd, very intermittent background music. It is unnecessary and distracting.

Too Short!

My own fault, but didn't realize this was an abridged edition and had read the book many years ago, so was very disappointed that some of the best parts of the book were ommitted. I wish Ms. Pilcher had written more about the Brits in the Orient during the beginning of WWII.
