As spring comes to Scotland and the hills burst into life, a dance is planned for September. The invitations summon home the group of people Violet Aird has cared for most in her long life. The oldest, strongest and wisest of them all, she sees Alexa, her vulnerable granddaughter, find love for the first time, while the decision to send her little grandson away to school is driving parents Edmund and Virginia even further apart. Far from them all is Pandora, the glamorous, exciting girl who ran away twenty years before. All will converge on Scotland this September, bringing their stories with them.

Rosamunde Pilcher is a brilliant story teller. This book, as with all her other books, draws you into the unfolding events.

I loved The Shell Seekers, so I was really looking forward to sinking my teeth into another great Pilcher novel. But September was slow, boring, tedious, lacking real character development, and contained very few (if any) surprises. Someone on another site (shelfari?) likened it to slogging through molasses. I had really had it up to here with Scottish "old money" and was relieved to finish that book and get it out of my life. Yes, I read it through. But the best part was finishing it for good.

Wonderful book by wonderful author
I have a weakness for novels based in Britain. I've read this 3 times now. I bought this hardback copy because my paperback was falling apart. This is a warm and absorbing story. All of Pilcher's novels and short stories are wonderful. I love the connection in September with characters from The Shellseekers. Highly recommended. I'd love to go visit the people in this book.
