The British author, who produced numerous bestsellers after her 1987 breakthrough, died following a stroke

Rosamunde Pilcher, author of the sweeping, bestselling family saga The Shell Seekers, has died aged 94.

Her son, the author Robin Pilcher, confirmed the news to the Guardian . “She had been in great form up until Christmas, then suffered from bronchitis in the new year, but was always expected to bounce back as before. However, she suffered a stroke on Sunday night and never regained consciousness,” he said.

Robin described Pilcher as “a wonderful, rather alternative-thinking mother – I think she might have liked the description bohemian – who touched and influenced the lives of many of all ages, not only through her writing but through personal friendships”.
