The New York Times best-selling author of Starting Over and An Ocean Apart returns with his strongest work to date - a heartwarming story of love, compassion, and redemption.

After the dot-com bubble bursts, Dan Porter is laid off from his job and must decide what is truly important. His wife of 20 years, Jackie, a beautiful and successful managing director at a clothing designer shop, no longer connects with him. His teenagers, Josh, Nina, and Millie, are distant and confusing. Jackie is tempted by the attentions of a younger man at her office, and thanks to an opportunity suggested by a magazine article, Dan finds himself contemplating a drastic change in his life.

A Risk Worth Taking is an insightful, thought-provoking novel of a man who has to discover what he really values in his work, marriage, and life. Robin Pilcher writes fluidly and well, and he is unerringly adept at capturing the details of his characters' lives. He has written a poignant and engrossing story about the real choices many adults face when they start taking stock of their lives.

    " I love Rosamund Pilcher's writing, and had heard that Robin, her son, also writes good books. I enjoyed this novel (an unemployed man travels to Scotland to investigate buying a textile company) and will look for more novels from him. "

    " Robin Pilcher is not Rosamund. The opening of this book was like a Creative Writing 101 homework assignment. After he found his voice, the story picked up. Still, not terribly engaging. "

    " Mistakenly read in our book club. Vote from all: pure fluff! "
