After years in the United States, Jane returns to the tranquil Scottish estate, Elvie, where she spent a magical childhood. Memories of Elvie had always summoned the image of Sinclair, the rakish man Jane had once dreamed of marrying, but now that she is home, she finds Sinclair a different man. His charm has a purpose, and Jane can no longer trust him...or herself, in The End of Summer.
When you read a novel by Rosamunde Pilcher you enter a special world where emotions sing from the heart. A world that lovingly captures the ties that bind us to one another-the joys and sorrows, heartbreaks and misunderstandings, and glad, perfect moments when we are in true harmony. A world filled with evocative, engrossing, and above all, enjoyable portraits of people's lives and loves, tenderly laid open for us...

"Sitting on a California beach at summer's ends, Jane Marsh thought back to her childhood at the estate called Elvie in a remote corner of Scotland. She remembered not only the heather-covered hills and lonesome loch, but her grandmother... and, of course, Sinclair. She had secretly dreamed of marrying rakishly handsome Sinclair and settling at Elvie forever. Now an urgent visit from her grandmother's lawyer would become the catalyst for her return to Scotland... where waiting for her was passion, not gentle love, and the chilling realization that she might be ready to wed the wrong man.
