Pilcher, Rosamunde — British authors Rosamunde Pilcher and Joanna Trollope both write multilayered, incisive novels that sensitively probe the intricacies and vicissitudes of marriage and family life with thoughtfulness and compassion. Trollope's books lack the cozy nostalia found in Pilcher's works. -- Ellen Guerci
Binchy, Maeve — Readers who enjoy Joanna Trollope may also like Maeve Binchy. Both authors write domestic stories of relationships with strong heroines, interesting characters, and intertwining plots devoted to family stories and family crises. Their novels are engrossing and leisurely paced. -- Ellen Guerci
Sheepshanks, Mary — Mary Sheepshanks also writes charming, domestic stories of complex family relationships, set, like Trollope's, in the provinces. There's a bit more British humor, especially in some titles, but Sheepshanks writes about similar themes and characters and creates equally satisfying stories of Women's Lives. -- Ellen Guerci
Willett, Marcia — Although her stories have a more emotional impact than Joanna Trollope's, Marcia Willett offers similar domestic tales of relationships -- family, romantic, and friends -- in leisurely-paced stories set in provincial England. -- Ellen Guerci
Kingsolver, Barbara — Like Joanna Trollope, American author Barbara Kingsolver writes quiet, character-centered novels. Their works frequently include stories of intertwined lives and especially of women caught in domestic crises from which they devise a life plan and accept the consequences. -- Ellen Guerci
