Abridged--4 Cassettes, 6 hours.

Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher is Christmas reading at its best! Set in a spacious old house in a little town north of Inverness, the story brings an unlikely group of people together for Christmas, capturing the true spirit of the season.

Pilcher takes time at the beginning of the book to introduce us to the main characters one by one, giving us the background stories needed to fully appreciate the significance of each individual. The book is delightfully cozy and happy, but it is so because you understand the pain and heartache each person brings to the Christmas season and with this understanding rejoice as heartache is soothed with love and friendship and celebration.

The story follows the lives of Oscar, a new widower devastated by the loss of his wife and young daughter and now homeless, and Elfrida, an older actress with no attachments who drops everything to take Oscar to Scotland for Christmas. Through a series of events they are joined in Scotland by Elfrida’s neice and great-niece who have no other place to celebrate the holidays. A snowstorm brings one more person into the mix for the holiday week. As the story unfolds we are introduced to the idyllic town of Creagan and its inhabitants which include Mrs. Snead (the housekeeper), her husband, and Peter Kennedy (the minister) and his family. Interactions and growing friendships with these, and others, help to bring about a feeling of true community as well as ideas and support for solving the imminent question of what the future holds for each person in the house after Christmas is over.

Pilcher, a well-known English-born writer, has lived in Scotland much of her life. Her intimate knowledge of the countryside comes through in her writings. Many of the places in this book are based on real Scottish towns and buildings.

It is often difficult to find a truly well-written, satisfying Christmas story. Winter Solstice is a treasure of a book and the perfect antidote to the stress of the Christmas season.

Travel Notes: Inverness Tours offers a Rosamunde Pilcher Winter Solstice tour in which you can travel to see the principal towns and villages in this book. Otherwise, it is helpful to know that Tain is the real name for Kingsferry (shopping town in the book), Skibo Castle is the basis for Corrydale (ancestral home in the book), and Dornoch is the town on which Pilcher based Creagan (the Scottish setting for Winter Solstice)
I’ve reached the point where the mountain of books in my to-be-read pile will surely outlive me, so I seldom re-read a novel. This book is a rare exception. I loved this one when I first read it back in 2000, and I loved it every bit as much when I re-read it earlier this month.

Elfrida Phipps made her living as a stage actress. Not a famous actress or even (perhaps) a particularly talented one, but it paid the rent. Now that she’s reached retirement age she’s decided to move away from London and buys herself a tiny cottage in a small country village. End of story, right? Hardly; it’s just the beginning of Elfrida’s ‘second act’.

The bulk of the story takes place just before Christmas, in the north of Scotland where Elfrida is ensconced in a stately old manor house. She’s joined there by a mix of family and almost-strangers, none of them looking forward to the holidays. But a funny thing happens – this holiday that they’d all been dreading (each for different reasons), ends up becoming a celebration of healing and starting over.

“Winter Solstice” is not, in my opinion, Rosamunde Pilcher’s best novel. The dialog often has a very scripted feel to it, especially when it involves the teen-age characters. Now normally awkward dialog is the kiss of death for any book I happen to be holding in my picky little hands, but not so with this one. The central themes of this story – healing, starting over, second chances – are so powerful and appealing that I can’t help but adore the book. The author draws you into the story with such succinct and vivid descriptions of the places and the people; everything comes to life on the page. The emotions that these characters are experiencing are bound to resonate with almost everyone, and the overall hopeful feeling that pervades the story makes it a wonderful book to pick up if you’re in the mood for something uplifting and life-affirming. Just lovely, *sigh*.

No strong language (that I recall) and no sexual content.
This is such a great book! Elfrida is a retired actress and an individual in everything she does. She lives life on her terms and is unique and quirky. She moves to a new town and befriends Oscar and Gloria and their family. They live a wealthy, social lifestyle. Tragedy strikes and Elfrida and Oscar set off for a new beginning in a home that Oscar co-owns with his cousin. They decide to live a quiet life and ignore Christmas and the holiday season.Carrie is Elfrida's relative, and is trying to get over a devastating breakup. She left her job in Austria and returned to London to visit her mom, sister, and niece, Lucy. As she returns, she finds the house in chaos. Her sister is planning on a romantic holiday with her new love, her mom is going to visit friends for the holiday, and no one has a clue what to do with Lucy. So Carrie offers to take her and escape to visit Elfrida for the season. Sam is going to be reopening the woolen mills near the home Oscar is staying in. He has a key to the house, courtesy of the co-owner (Oscar's cousin) and an interest in purchasing it for himself. When he arrives, he finds the house inhabited by Oscar, Elfrida, Carrie, and Lucy. A heavy snowstorm causes him to need to stay also. Elfrida invites him to stay for the holidays, and Sam gratefully accepts. Together with their neighbors,the minister (Peter) and his wife and their children (one of whom happens to be close in age to Lucy, a boy, and very handsome and sweet) Elfrida and Oscar's quiet holiday turns into a party. This story is about redemption. Every single main character has tough choices to make, decisions to make, and find the course of their future. It is deeply satisfying on every level. I highly enjoy this book and read it a few times a year.
