This was the debut novel for Robin Pilcher, son of the better-known writer Rosamunde Pilcher. I am enjoying Robin Pilcher's books. David, a businessman who has been grieving and depressed, flies to America for an important meeting. AS an author, his style is not unlike his mother's, and I have enjoyed Rosamunde Pilcher's books for years. So happy to find well-written novels that are not gruesome or over-infused with sex.

On a visit to the . a Scottish whisky distiller takes a break from corporate life by going to work as a gardener for a wealthy couple. Without revealing his identity, he becomes the confidant of the wife, whose husband is unfaithful, and he helps their troubled son. But a move to force him out of his company cuts short the idyll, not to mention that being a widower he has children to look after.
He knew that it would take his last ounce of fortitude to suffer the tedious train journey back out to Long Island. David was home-and, chucking his brief-case onto the table, went over to the sink to fill up the kettle. As he plugged it in, a slight movement on the sofa in the corner of the room made him turn around abruptly. David? Jesus, what a fright you gave me!. He walked over to the sofa. He knew something was wrong immediately
This was the debut novel for Robin Pilcher, son of the better-known writer Rosamunde Pilcher. An Ocean Apart by Robin Pilchner Loved this book after I found out the author has a relative that is also an author. Clever plotting as a business thread alternates with David's personal story. This one is about a man who has lost his wife and he helps run a whiskey business with his father. He still has 3 kids and his mother looks after them as he wraps his head around his loss.
Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 17 years ago. This book was a joy to read. I found it heartwarming, simple and sweet, and although other readers objected to what they thought was a simplistic and cliched plot, I did not. The story concerns upper-class Scotsman David Inchelvie, who has lost his beloved wife Rachel to cancer.
