Publisher's Summary

In number-one New York Times best-selling author Rosamunde Pilcher’s Wild Mountain Thyme, a woman learns to forgive her ex - and herself - when she joins him on a journey where she’ll discover love is always a possibility.  

Oliver Dobbs was a writer first and a man second. To him other people were tools. Even though he had broken Victoria Bradshaw’s heart once, when he arrived on her doorstep with a two-year-old son, she found she could not refuse him, and the three of them set out for a castle in Scotland. There, Victoria meets the new laird and finds her crushed spirit awakening.

Another Pilcher pleasure

I’m such a fan of this author. Even though predictable in nature, one falls in love with the characters including the beautiful countryside. The narrator was so pleasant and easy to listen too.

Beautifully Written, Weak Heroine

As with all of Pilcher’s books, this story has a lovely setting and is beautifully described. I was very bothered by Victoria’s willingness to allow herself to terribly treated and the other characters’ tacit consent to the verbal abuse hurled at her.

Beautiful story of Scotland

I loved the character of Victoria and John but found Oliver a total jerk! The descriptions of Scotland were lovely.

Delightful read

While some plot aspects are a little implausible, Rosamond Pilcher never fails to develop characters who come fully alive and who evoke caring in the reader. Her scenes of Scotland, too, are in trancing. I thoroughly enjoyed this and every Pilcher novel I have read. Excellent reading as well. I am a late comer to listening to books but I have happily discovered that different accents and nationalities can be even better understood through hearing than through simply reading on the page.

Another lovely story by RP

The ending of the story is predictable but the getting there is so engaging. Lucy Peterson’s narration is wonderful!

Loved every word

I loved the characters, the setting, the pace, and the comfy feeling from being a part of the adventure, not simply reading about it! I would call it lovely in every way!

Didn't do it for me!

I had high hopes when starting this book, but sadly became more and more disappointed the further I got into it. The storyline looked interesting, and being a lover of all things Scottish I couldn't wait to get started! Also Ms. Pilcher has such a good reputation as a writer I was happy to spend a book credit on what would hopefully be a pleasing adventure!
Overall I feel sad to have wasted my credit! The storyline was pretty weak, a self centered man kidnapping his son from the grandparents who had been raising him, his sometimes girlfriend going along with this because she was in love with said man, leaving everything behind to go off on a journey to Scotland to stay with virtual strangers on some big estate! No police looking for them, some grandparents not sending out a search party! Then, the mysterious American hero Victoria had met a a party a couple days previously suddenly turns up at the Estate as the new Laird, and he falls for her like right away! Self centered man, Oliver , becomes more of a jerk than we already knew he was going to be, heroine Victoria turns into one of the wimpiest women I've read about in quite some time, she spends most of her time making excuses for Oliver's poor behaviour or crying, has no backbone and quite frankly she annoyed the heck out of me!!
I won't reveal the end to the book in case others want to read it, but lets just say its all very predictable, there is no bang, just a wimper or two then its all over, thankfully!!
The narrator was ok, but I do think that she actually helped make poor Victoria sound weaker by the way she portrayed her, almost whiney! All in all sorry Ms. Pilcher, this book was a big dud for me, it could have been good, but it just wasn't!
