Against the backdrop of an elegant Cornwall mansion before World War II and a vast continent-spanning canvas during the turbulent war years, this involving story tells of an extraordinary young woman's coming of age, coming to grips with love and sadness, and in every sense of the term, coming home...In 1935, Judith Dunbar is left behind at a British boarding school when her mother and baby sister go off to join her father in Singapore. At Saint Ursula's, her friendship with Loveday Carey-Lewis sweeps her into the privileged, madcap world of the British aristocracy, teaching her about values, friendship, and wealth. But it will be the drama of war, as it wrenches Judith from those she cares about most, that will teach her about courage...and about love.Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in a novel that is a true masterpiece, Coming Home is a book to be savored, reread, and cherished forever.

But, such a comfor...

It had been a LONG time since I read it last, so I'd actually forgotten most of it, and was very pleasantly surprised. It was even better than I remembered. I haven't read too many of Rosamunde Pilcher's books, but so far it's my experience that her 'long' books (400+ pages) are MUCH better than her...

I dearly love this. The plight of children left to boarding schools while their parents serve the empire in distant places, military families, rich, spoiled families, and how war changes everything.
