Publisher's Summary

A woman’s discovery of a family she never knew she had uncovers even deeper mysteries in The Day of the Storm from number-one New York Times best-selling author Rosamunde Pilcher. 

On the last day of her mother’s life, Rebecca learns she has a family in Cornwall and sets out to find the grandfather and cousin she has never known. But only the enigmatic Joss Gardner, the outsider who seems to be the apple of her grandfather’s eye, can help her understand the dark currents that lie behind her family’s loving reception.

Pilcher Calms

I read Rosamunde Pilcher whenever I feel in need of comfort, and the confusingly named The Day of the Storm (it felt like the was a storm every whipstitch) fit that bill. A gorgeous old property, newly found relatives, a lovely innocent heroine and motives for days.

Pilcher’s old flowery style never fails to calm me, but others are correct: this ended very abruptly. Narration was good, especially the purring Molly, and I think what I learned most is I need a butler.

Completely abrupt ending

I really enjoyed this and had no idea it would end so quickly with no clear resolution. Overall it’s good but irritating when it feels like the author had to end the book right now and you’re wondering what happens.

What I was looking for

A friend recommended this book to me. I decided to try this author. How nice to find a book that isn’t full of graphic sex.

I am mystified by the fact that this is not available at audible.com by any search. I finally found it at Amazon.com in the search there.
