Rosamunde Pilcher is a British author of romance novels. Although it came somewhat late in her career, her breakthrough novel was the 1987 novel The Shell Seekers.

    • Brandon

      Carol, I am able to find info on the TV series you’re looking for, and it says it is adapted from a novel, but I can’t find anything more than that. I don’t know if the novel has another title or what.
