I dearly love and have read all of Maeve Binchy,Belva Plain and Rosamunde Pilcher books-----------------Can anyone lead me to similar authors?

I love how they write in depth, and of family ties and drama's

Thanks in advance---------------

Hi,

 

You may like Marcia Willett and Erica James, and Monica McInerney.  Also, Rosamunde has a son named Robin Pilcher who has written several books.

 

Enjoy!

Sherry

Robin Pilcher is very good.  His mom, Rosamunde Pilcher, died.  Marian Keyes is also a good author along the lines of what you like.

I didn't know  Rosamunde PIlcher passed away-how sad! She is one of my favorite authors.

Jan Karon has nice books, especially the Mitford Years (6 books). They are Christian oriented. I have "These High Green Hills" on my shelf.
