    I have read all but one of Marcia Willett’s books and enjoyed them all immensely. However, would like to know if she is contemplating a sequel to The Summer House as clearly there is the potential for another novel ?

    Just completed the first book I have read by Marcia Willet. Christmas in Cornwall is a wonderful book full of real people with all of the good and not as good in them. A lot of warmth in this story without the author displaying the all too common neat of wrapping up each character’s personal story in a neat finished package. She left the ends of some of their stories to our imaginations. Enjoyed this book so much I went searching for more books written by her.
