Have a little time on your hands?

Read Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher

After a life on the stage, 60ish and single, Elfrida retires to a country retreat in Hampshire, England.   She is befriended by Oscar and Gloria and their 12-year-old daughter, Francesca.  Tragically, Gloria and Francesca are killed in an auto accident and Oscar is left with nowhere to live.  Elfrida persuades Oscar to return to his childhood hometown in Scotland. With few ties of her own, Elfrida goes with Oscar and they move into a house that belongs to Oscar’s family.  Their plan is to escape Christmas festivities and sad memories.  At the same time, a distant relative of Elfrida, beautiful, stylish, 30-year-old, Carrie, is escaping a painful love affair and is also seeking a quiet place to spend the holidays. She rescues her 14-year-old niece from a neglectful mother and the two descend upon Oscar and Elfrida.  And, when a handsome, successful, separated Sam knocks on their door during a snowstorm, there is nothing to do but ask him to stay.  Winter Solstice is story with a heart warming plot about five souls from three generations who find Christmas isn’t so bad after all.
