Wild Mountain Thyme (by Rosamunde Pilcher)

What a wonderful writer Rosamunde Pilcher is. I only wish she had written more novels, so I could re-read her work more frequently.

'Wild Mountain Thyme' has a dramatic opening, as Oliver Dobbs (playwright) fools the girl looking after his two-year-old son, then arrives on the doorstep of his ex-girlfriend Victoria. She agrees to take him back, and go with him to visit an acquaintance in Scotland.

What starts as an idyllic holiday nearly ends in tragedy, before Victoria learns about life and love, and makes some wise decisions.

A lovely book.
