‘I have a tendresse for sweeping and epic romantic sagas set around huge houses and aristocratic families and Santa Montefiore hits the spot for me like few other writers. This is the second book in her Deverill Chronicles, which follows the fortunes of Irish sisters, Kitty, Bridie and Celia, starts in 1925 and focuses on Celia’s determination to restore Castle Deverill to its former glory.

Daughters of Castle Deverill began just where Songs of Love and War left off and it took this epic drama to another level. The characters I fell in love with in the first book all grew in personality and there were several new additions, an eclectic bunch that I would never in my wildest dreams have thought had a place in this story, but they just added to the wow factor that this book delivers. The part played by "The Shrubs" in this book ( sorry, but I don't want to spoil this treat for you by telling you what they are), was a touch of genius. I loved them in part one and totally adored them in part two.
The story continues, it's 1925 and a new owner moves into the castle, but after a massive refurbishment there is a shocking discovery. Kitty, Bridie and Celia, upon whom the story is largely based, all face life-changing decisions in one way or another, unsavoury characters rear their ugly heads and along with the revelation of long hidden secrets, this book embodies the great television drama serial it will one day surely become.
There is only one negative comment I can possibly make, and that is that I have to wait until next year for part three. Both books could easily be read as stand-alone novels, though I highly recommend you read Songs of Love and War first, purely because it is so good and will add to your enjoyment of Daughters of Castle Deverill.
Part 2 of 3 so in order to enjoy and understand you need to read Part 1 first. Having said all that I finished
reading it within a couple of weeks and loved every bit. BUT Santa if you should read this please don't ask
your husband to help with any more books he is just too clever and long winded for the average reader.
The characters are so real and the descriptions are so good I felt I knew Ireland. I lived through their problems, romantic attachments, happiness and sorrows.
By the end of the book I felt I knew them all. I hope that all the ends will be tied up and the children re-united with their real parents.
It makes one realise how times and attitudes have changed. Thank goodness!
I can't wait for the next one in the series.
