ROSAMUNDE PILCHER'S COMING HOME
Rosamunde Pilcher's novels feature strong women who experience misfortune and happiness, emerging even stronger at the end. They are moving, stirring, yet never trivialise the emotions. COMING HOME is the story of a young woman whose life is unexpectedly and irrevocably changed by the outbreak of war.
While Judith is in boarding school she makes friends with Loveday Carey-Lewis and travels with her to the family estate in Cornwall. The family welcomes Judith with open arms and hearts. Shortly afterwards she falls in love with their son, Edward. Life is idyllic. But the outbreak of WWII shakes the domestic harmony to its core and puts relationships to the ultimate test.
Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia, Troy) plays the head of the Carey-Lewis family. The supporting roles feature a brilliant blend of international stars such as Joanna Lumley (The Wolf of Wall Street, Absolutely Fabulous), Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code), Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Pride and Prejudice) and Emily Mortimer (Shutter Island, Match Point).
