Join the fun and frolic with American heiress Penny Nichols
and her English hero Jeremy Laidley, as the adventurous
couple sets off for more elegant travel and delightful
Penny and Jeremy are just returning from their honeymoon,
only to be greeted by eccentric friends of Prince Charles
bearing a rather royal request: to rescue a historical
village on the coast of Cornwall, England. A property
developer is bulldozing his way across the countryside to
build a monstrous new development, and he's heading
straight for Grandmother Beryl's old homestead where the
newlyweds first met long ago as kids. Can Penny and Jeremy
solve an ancient puzzle in time to save Grandma's house-and
the entire village-from total destruction?
On the romantic rocky cliffs of Cornwall, amid Celtic lore
and tales of Shakespeare, smugglers, and shipwrecks, Penny
and Jeremy must contend with a rakish cast of local
characters: a bird-watching earl, a famous TV chef, a vain
actor, a New Age farmer, a pair of thuggish real-estate
tycoons, a rebel rock-and-roller, and a band of
determined "eco-warriors." Following a trail of cryptic
clues, Penny and Jeremy's new caper takes them to the lush
island of Madeira and the legendary castle of Tintagel, in
a race against time to find the astonishing truth... before
the wrecking ball strikes.
With her trademark wit, wisdom, and verve, C.A. Belmond's
newest novel in her beloved "Rather" series provides a
perfect armchair voyage of Europe's glamorous locales, with
plenty of mystery, history, food, wine, love, and life's

Re: A Rather Remarkable Homecoming
The fourth book in the "Rather" series, this story is just as fun-filled as the previous tales, and can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel as the author provides plenty of back-story to catch the reader up to speed. The lively Penny and Jeremy are just adorable, and the adventures they find themselves on are delightfully goose-pimply. I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series!
