Product Description


'Pilcher's storytelling skills are serene and beguiling' The Times 'It's never too soon to discover Rosamunde Pilcher' Good Housekeeping 'Her genius is to create characters you really care for' Daily Express

From the Publisher

Every family hides something, but Flora Waring discovered a devastating deception in hers. At twenty-two she learned she had an identical twin, Rose, who lived with the mother Flora didn't remember at all. And when Flora ended up impersonating the high-spirited, spoiled Rose, she would have to face how cruel lies can be. When she agreed to accompany Rose's fiance to meet his grandmother in a picturesque town on the Scottish coast, she would quickly fall in love with the lush green countryside, the Armstrong family, and a rare, wonderful man. But she would also confront Rose's shocking secrets and a betrayal that could break her heart. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
I don't think that Rosamunde Pilcher could write a bad book, but this, one of her earliest, is one of her best. It has all the wonderful Pilcher elements: the stately old home gone slightly shabby; the wonderfully individual characters (in this case, in Scotland rather than Pilcher's often-used Cornwall venue); the stalwart hero/heroines bearing secret grief in silence.
Our heroine, Flora, suddenly finds at age 22 that she has an identical twin from whom she was separated at birth. That twin, Rose, is everything that Flora is not--and does not wish to be. But before Flora can find this out, she is drawn into a ridiculous and dangerous scheme. She will impersonate Rose, who has jilted her perfectly nice fiance Antony, in front of Antony's dying grandmother, Tuppy.
Thus begins a fraught journey to the aforementioned crumbling estate in Scotland, a love-at-first-sight meeting with the grandmother, and a week-long charade that brings Flora close to permanent disaster, and changes everyone around her. Of course the reader prays for a happy ending and a nice, bracing cup of hot tea.
Simply a gem. If this is a Pilcher you have missed, give yourself a treat and curl up with it at the first opportunity.

I have long maintained that reading a book by Rosamunde Pilcher is like coming home from work and putting on ones' robe and slippers. Both experiences are so warm, inviting and ultimately comfortable. And once again while reading Under Gemini, I had that old feeling that I was being enveloped not only with the wonderful characters but also with the locales that Pilcher describes so well.
Trying to put her life back into order, Rose is startled, while dining one evening in London, to see her face looking back at her. Realizing that she has a long lost twin Flora, Rose must at first adjust to the idea of a twin and the circumstances concerning their separation. Then when Flora suggests that Rose spend a few days in her apartment and Flora then must leave for Greece, Rose comes face to face with a man who thinks she is actually Flora. But Flora doesn't reckon with the fact that this man has given her twin a ring and now expects her to accompany him to see his sick grandmother in Scotland. His grandmother who met Flora five years ago wishes to see the more grown up Flora now in case she dies. Having nowhere to live and no job at the moment, Flora decides to go with the young man but has second thoughts when she meets his grandmother and other family members. The rest of the story moves along pleasantly. A real romance is in store for Rose, all loose ends are tied up in the end a la Pilcher style and there is a happy ending.
This is a sweet book with lovely characters during a simpler time. Written before Pilcher's best selling books, earlier titles like Under Gemini showed the earmarks of Pilcher's grander books like The Shell Seekers and Coming Home. Lucky for me that while I have read most of Pilcher's titles, I still have saved some of them and now can look forwrd to reading them along with her newest title Winter Solstice.

This was my first Rosamunde Pilcher book and I got hooked on her books since then.
It is a beautiful story of a young woman who finds her true love in a most unusual place. It starts with a chance meeting with her twin sister in London for the first time, the reluctant agreement to take her place and go to Scotland with the young man who was engaged to the other sister to see his family.
During this tormenting week of deception, she meets a most remarkable family and Dr. Kyle who discovers her deception, but also finds her beautiful and very special.
The burst of love between the lonely doctor and the young woman is the most refreshing part of this book. I will always remember the last scene where she goes to him before she catches the train to go back to the south forever, and declare her love to him,thus freeing him from his self doubts.
The background of this story is the hauntingly beatiful scenary of west Scotland. The mountains, the wind, the lakes, the small fishing town, the strong people and most of all, the handsome Dr.Kyle who finds a second chance of happiness again.

Rosamunde Pilcher is one of my favorite authors, along with Margaret Mitchell and Harper Lee. Pilcher's world is that of the Scottish coast, with its slightly shabby and beloved stone homesteads, its unique and genuine characters, its Aga stoves, leashes hanging in the mud room, tennis racquets in the hall, and corner grocery stores whose owners keep track of the inhabitants of the village. And of course, sheep, grouse and liberal amounts of Scotch or restoring cups of tea. I would live in this world of Pilcher's if I could. She writes in visual pictures that help you place yourself there. Her plots are well-constructed and thought-out. In this novel, a twin stands in for her recently met twin sister who she finds out is a not very nice "gel" as they say. The characters of the bed-ridden grandmother matriarch, Tuppy, the lost, out-of-her-element Flora and the lonely, handsome Dr. Hugh Kyle are people you will want to spend time with. They are supported by a cast of characters, each total human beings with hopes, wishes and hang-ups. Just a lovely book. Thanks, Rosamunde for sharing your world with me through books! Your books always make me feel that there would be a room waiting for me were I to visit that world.
