Rosamund Pilcher trail
One of the best-loved authors associated with Cornwall is Dame Rosamunde Pilcher, whose literary career spanned five decades, resulting in over 20 novels and many collections of short stories.
Her best-loved novel, ‘The Shell Seekers’, has sold more than five million copies worldwide, and in 1996 ‘Coming Home’ won the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s ‘Romantic Novel of the Year Award’. Her books are prized for the warmth and compassion with which Pilcher portrays lovable characters in everyday situations that the reader can relate to, as well as her breathtaking descriptions of idyllic places, many of them on the Cornish coast.
