Rosamunde Pilcher - Winter Solstice/Summer Solstice [DVD]

£4.99

Product description

Double bill of television dramas based on the novels by Rosamunde Pilcher. In 'Winter Solstice' (2003), Elfrida Phipps (Sinead Cusack) has recently lost her husband. Moving into a new cottage, she begins to make friends with her neighbours, the Blundell family. Joined by her niece Carrie (Sophie Schütt), Elfrida seems to be putting her life back in order, a process that is interrupted when a tragic accident befalls the Blundells. As they all retreat to a Scottish estate for Christmas to get over their grief, a chance acquaintance from Carrie's past and a sense of belonging that the friends thought they had lost forever leads to the best Christmas of their lives. The sequel, 'Summer Solstice' (2005) is set in the Scottish Highlands and stars Jacqueline Bissett, Sinead Cusack and Honor Blackman.
Rosamunde Pilcher creates an ideal world with characters too good to be true. It is escapist entertainment, but sometimes it is nice to escape from the harsh world we live in and enjoy a few hours in the world as we would like it to be. It gives me hours of enjoyment and a happy ending. What can be wrong with that?
2 Disc DVD set.
