Warm, Wise, and Wonderful Willett


If you haven't read a Marcia Willett novel, let me do you a favor and recommend that you pick up one (or several) and wander across the rose-covered lanes and rocky shores of her oh-so-charming English mind. The ambience of her books is so irresistible that I've been on a reading binge of sorts, inhaling her novels one after another on my Kindle. Now that I've exhausted that source, I am seriously considering buying hard copies of the rest and finishing the feast!

In the past couple of weeks, I have read the following: The Children's Hour, Christmas in Cornwall, The Courtyard, Echoes of the Dance, First Friends, A Friend of the Family, Second Time Around, A Summer in the Country, The Way We Were, and A Week in Winter. All are steeped in family and scented in English countryside, leaving this reader as calm and content as a cozy fireside sit-down with the likes of Rosamunde Pilcher.

So grab a fuzzy blanket, settle yourself in your favorite chair, and enter the world of unique characters, intriguing family relationships, and peaceful page-turning that is part and parcel of the Marcia Willett experience. But don't be surprised when she plants a garden of past and present secrets along the way...

Unfortunately too busy these days writing the next in my novel series to do much reading for pleasure but if I've the time I'll certainly dip into this. As you know, I adore the English countryside!

Lovely post - as always!

This sounds so so good. I've never even heard of this author but I'm going to check her out. Thank you Sue! Btw, thank you so much for what you taught us about the oils. The serenity and lavender really do work!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Hmmm... I'mm a big reader and can't say I've read any of those. I'll check them out! Thanks! :)

Friko said...

Sounds like the roses-round-the door-Aga-sage type of novel.
I’ve never heard of Willett, but I’ve heard of Pilcher. I have read neither writer, but if I find Willett in the second hand bookstore I’ll pick her up.

I have actually been very discouraged with books lately. I don't have time for the weight of the classics, nor do I have the patience for fluff or the popular books that don't seem to edify or fill one. I am so glad you recommended her, as I think I can trust your opinion in books. I don't see you recommending anything so trivial, so I am excited to try her out. Thank you!
