It just was a bit predictable. It's a storyline that has been done too many times to have anything really new to offer.

Under Gemini by Rosamunde Pilcher
I've heard Rosamunde Pilcher described as a modern day Jane Austin...and that is nearly right. But in someways she is even better. Her usage of words is just not matched by many writers these days. Sometimes I just have to read a passage over and over and maybe even copy it down to remember how right she is in describing feelings and situations and places. You can just taste and smell and feel everything that she writes about. I am so glad I rediscovered all these new books out by her. One of my favorite books of 40 years ago was Shell Seekers. After that I read everything she had to offer and then there was a dry period where I found nothing more. Now here she is again with lots to read. Under Gemini was one of the good ones. An intriguing concept of twins separated by birth and raised by each different parent and coming together by happenchance in London. Oh, the storyline is so clever and challenging and fun. This one sister blossoms when faced with conundrums and problems and her true character shines forth and it is a satisfying story all together. Grab up one of her books and you can sit back and relax with a cuppa something and enjoy the escape into Rosamundes world. She's even better than Maeve Benchy...now that's saying something. See Gee

I am a great fan of Rosamunde Pilcher . I have read almost every one of her books.with great pleasure and lately I begun enjoying her son Robin books as welL

But this book, Under Gemini, was a huge flop. The plot looks like the first try of a ten year old to write a book. The theme of two twins that got separated at birth.has being used too many times and it doesnt convince anybody.anymore.. And the coincidence of meeting in London is so incredible like .everything else in this book
In this book you treated your feminine character like in the Middle Ages, weak and stupid.And it is supposed to be a twenty century book.A man has to get a wife in order to have his shirts pressed and his kitchen cleaned.
I could ignore the absurdity of the plot. But, dear Risamunde Pilcher, how could you write about a man slapping a woman in her face and she becomes attracted to him . What message do you send to your readers? Even in a remote Scottish town.
I am going to forget this book and I dont know that I will read another Pilcher book.

A while back several Pilcher novels went on sale for $1.99, and a scooped up a bunch of them. Now I am happily working my way through my treasure trove of novels.

I think if you look up 'comfort read' in the dictionary, it will tell you 'see Rosemunde Pilcher.' It would in my own personal dictionary, anyway. I love her books for the robust good sense of the characters, the twists and turns of the plots, and the eventual happy ending, cleverly achieved. Usually lit is accomplished by somebody doing the right thing. I had to stop and think as I was reading this book 'is this a D. E. Stevenson novel?' but no, it was Pilcher, the next best thing to Stevenson.

Flora falls in with the madcap plans of her suddenly-discovered twin and agrees to take her place to comfort a dying woman. She comes to find that deceiving kind, decent people who take you at face value and come to cherish the person they think you are isn't as much fun as she thought it was going to be. It becomes even more untenable when she realizes that her twin is a manipulative, selfish person who thinks only of herself.

Eventually inhabiting Rose's skin becomes so difficult for Flora that she wants out, but doesn't know how to extricate herself without doing more damage than she has already done. She does, of course, in typical Pilcher fashion, findinding her true self and love, too, along the way.

I thought i had read every book she ever had written and discovered when I was in the mood to re-read her that I had completely missed this one. It is more of a happening than a character study to me but again i could hear her style through the descriptions of the sisters. I was a bit surprised at how the book ended as it seemed to me that the obvious would have been the grandson of the wonderful character around whom the books seems to center. i am making another journey through her books and this will probably be my last one as i have reached the ripe golden age of 78. I hope that another book is forthcoming so that once again i can enter the lovely English gardens and the beautiful hillsides of Scotland.

This was a nice, light, corny romance with some hard to believe situations.That said, I couldn't put it down. I would have given it four stars, had it not been for the huge amount of typos. In one case, the speaker was misidentified, which threw me off completely.( "I'm not Rose," said Rose.) Most of Pilcher's books were made for Kindle at the same date. Perhaps that was to blame...?

I simply love Rosamunde Pilcher, her descreptions of English scenery and culture, familiestories and caracters, wonderfully writt3n and a slow and very good read. I have read all her books, September and a Room With a veiw are my favourites. Under Gemini was one I never have read and never knew about, and a great joy for me presented by Amazon. Free of lurid and boring sexdetails, decent and well written, Thanks a lot. I know she does not "Write" any more, and I have read a book written by her son, but not with the same quality, I feel.. Please offer me more books in this category!

interesting plot.Beyond the atmosphere of close communities we have learnt to expect from Pilcher's books this is a book that prioritises values and leads us to believe that things that cannot be bought with money like friendship, love, companionship, respect, trust are much more valuable and turn us into happier beings than material things. It is the story of two twin sisters that have each been raised by a single parent and who first meet when they are grown up and quite different in character and values even though they are identical twins.i liked it.
I was thrilled that Rosamunde Pilchers books are finally on kindle. But, I think the prices are high. Since some of them are just short stories. Lower your prices Amazon and I will buy more.
