A nice quick read. A simple story with the power to move its reader.
"Unsure of her impending marriage, Caroline Cliburn travels to Scotland with her younger brother Jody in tow to rethink her feelings and investigate her older brother's disappearance. An inexperienced driver, Caroline crashes during an unexpected snowstorm. Virtually uninjured from the accident, Caroline and Jody walk to the nearest home, which happens to be the estate of Oliver Cairney, a wealthy London businessman who is in town taking care of his deceased brother's affairs. Oliver graciously asks the two to spend the night, and it is obvious from the start that the wealthy Londoner has eyes for Caroline. But when a neighbor thwarts any romance between the two by informing Caroline that Oliver is practically engaged, Caroline and Jody leave hastily, without even saying goodbye. But love always finds a way, and Caroline's sudden illness throws the two would-be lovers together once more.
At only 245 pages, Snow in April may be the perfect starting point for those readers intimated by Pilcher's lengthier prose. Even in this early work, it is easy to see why she has become a much-loved storyteller in her native Scotland and throughout the world. Snow in April is a sweet, touching read, sure to be enjoyed by connoisseurs of love stories everywhere." - Amazon.com Review
