But there's another kind of love. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible.


I've been thinking of you constantly since i left, wondering why the journey i'm on seemed to have led through you. I know my journey''s not over yet, and that life is a winding path, but i can only hope it somehow circles back to the place i belong. That's how i think of it now. I belong with you.

Before we met, i was as lost as a person could be and yet you saw something in me that somehow gave me direction again


The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.

“She was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people...”

“Every time I read to her, it was like I was courting her, because sometimes, just sometimes, she would fall in love with me again, just like she had a long time ago. And that's the most wonderful feeling in the world. How many people are ever given that chance? To have someone you love fall in love with you over and over?”


“But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.”

Wild Mountain Thyme by Rosamunde Pilcher
Wild Mountain Thyme - Rosamunde Pilcher

My second Rosamunde Pilcher book. Wild Mountain Thyme was better than Snow In April but not by much.

 

The story was a little less boring.  Victoria's old boyfriend, Oliver, unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep with a kid. Victoria still harbors some feelings for him so she agrees to go along with him and the kid on a trip to Scotland, which isn't a smart choice since Oliver is a selfish prick. Plus, he stole the kid. It's his child, but it was still kidnapping. That's why he wants to get away. Honestly, what does Victoria see in him?

 

Luckily before all this happened, Victoria meets this other guy, a nice, handsome, rich (basically perfect) man named John. John seems like he will be an important character so of course I hoped Victoria ended up with him. She does to no surprise, but it happens at the very end on the last pages when their relationship finally starts to kick off and get interesting.

 

Most of the story has Victoria with Oliver. And like I said before Oliver is a jerk, but out of the cast of characters, he was the most memorable out of the bunch. Everybody else was bland.

 

I found Victoria to be the same as the heroine from Snow in April. They're both helpless and passive. John is flat too. He's just the good guy that rescues Victoria. He takes charge after Oliver leaves and instantly solves all of Victoria's problems.

 

Wild Mountain Thyme is a cozy novel to past the time, but it's nothing special. It's also somewhat slow so some patience might be required to read it.

Snow in April by Rosamunde Pilcher
Snow in April - Rosamunde Pilcher

Pretty average read. Very light.

 

Biggest thing that stuck out to me was how Snow in April didn't go into depth about Caroline and Oliver's relationship. You see that they begin to have feelings for each other, but the book doesn't go into detail about it. In fact, the book ends pretty much as soon as Oliver declares that he will marry Caroline, which is weird because they didn't spend that much time together.

 

I didn't like the way Oliver bosses Caroline around, and how incredibly passive Caroline is. This was published in 1972, and you can tell that it's dated.

 

It's still a sweet story despite the lack of romance. I liked the big sister-little brother relationship Caroline and Jody have. Jody was a well written young boy. I didn't find him annoying. Instead I empathized with him since he wants to find his older brother so badly.

Reading this made me interested in trying out Pilcher's other works, but I can't say I recommend this one.
