Walks in the Footsteps of Rosamunde Pilcher features eighteen walks each associated either with a places special to her or a location from her books and films. Rosamunde Pilcher was born and brought up in Lelant, Cornwall, and started writing at the age of seven in a house overlooking the Hayle estuary. Her love of Cornwall is evident in her descriptions – the sea’s varying shades of blue and green, the way it sighs and swells like a living being; her knowledge and love of the Cornish landscape and its people which is reflected in this book of carefully selected walks.
Walks in the Footsteps of Rosamunde Pilcher is a unique tribute to this writer who sadly died in February 2019. We are used to seeing German film crews bringing her stories to life on the screen, and we welcome the many visitors who come to sample Cornwall’s beauty as portrayed in her books. This book includes plenty of old Cornish houses and cafes along the routes – a book to delight all Pilcher fans, walkers and armchair travellers alike.
