Starting Over by Robin Pilcher

Book Description

Since the split of her 18-year marriage, Liz Dewhurst has lived with her son, Alex, and her father on their family farm on the east coast of Fife. Liz's acrimonious divorce and the decline of the business has left them burdened with debt - Liz wants to keep the farm but her father feels it sensible to sell to a company who wants to make the land into a golf course. The arrival of Arthur, a professor, seems to bring more trouble but Liz's misgivings about taking in a lodger evaporate when she realises that not only does Arthur's presence help her lonely father but that she too, enjoys his company. Arthur, also divorced, is anxious to live life to the full, and asks Liz to accompany him on a trip to Spain. Liz refuses at first, but then thinks why not? When Arthur breaks his ankle, she is joined by Will, Arthur's estranged son, and with Arthur being the patient from hell and Liz feeling that she shouldn't be there, the return journey to Scotland is not an easy one but on the way the unexpected happens...

UK Kirkus Review » Liz Dewhurst has lost her husband to the local dolly-bird, her mother has recently died and, now to cap it all, it seems that the family farm is to be sold to make way for a new golf course. Needless to say the atmosphere at Brunthill Farm is not good. What is needed is an injection of new life into the home to lighten the mood. Maybe Professor Arthur Kempler, their newly installed lodger and German tutor at nearby St Andrews University, is just the man for the job. Arthur certainly has the knack of bringing some normality back into Liz and her family's lives and for this she is grateful, but when he invites her to accompany him on a holiday to Spain she thinks he's going a little bit too far. But after refusing him Liz realizes it's the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and she agrees to go. In Spain she meets Will, Arthur's son, who helps her to stop living in the past and to move on. But on return from her holiday Liz finds that a tragedy has occurred: her estranged husband and their son Alex have been involved in a car accident. Where will her loyalties lay now? Is her new life to be with Will or with those who have always been there? A new start with Will would mean moving far away from Scotland, away from her past but also from the homeland that she loves so much. Can she make such a break? This is a beautifully written novel, vivid and perceptive, with a refreshing ending. (Kirkus UK)
