Product description

Review

‘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. Lush, vivid storytelling’  (Sarra Manning Red magazine, on Daughters of Castle Deverill)

‘This is Santa Montefiore at her best – an enchanting read overflowing with deliciously poignant moments. If you love a heartfelt, epic trilogy this is for you. I loved it and can’t wait for more’ (Dinah Jefferies, author of The Tea Planter's Wife, on Songs of Love and War)

‘Nobody does epic romance like Santa Montefiore. Everything she writes, she writes from the heart’ (Jojo Moyes)

‘A multigenerational banquet of love: falling in, falling out, rediscovering,rekindling. The Beekeeper’s Daughter features sophisticated, irresistible backdrops and brilliantly drawn characters that made it one of the most engrossing reads of my year’ (Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Matchmaker, on The Beekeeper's Daughter)

‘I raced through this feel-good romantic story, which spans continents and decades’ (Fanny Blake Woman & Home on The Beekeeper's Daughter)

‘This deeply romantic saunter is an ideal summer read. Laced with secrets and forbidden liaisons, it is sure to keep you turning the pages’ (The Lady on The Beekeeper's Daughter)

‘Santa Montefiore is the new Rosamunde Pilcher’ (Daily Mail)

‘A superb storyteller of love and death in romantic places in fascinating times’ (Vogue)

‘A gripping romance . . . it is as believable as the writing is beautiful’ (Daily Telegraph)

‘Anyone who likes Joanne Harris or Mary Wesley will love Montefiore’ (Mail on Sunday)

‘One of our personal favourites and bestselling authors, sweeping stories of love and families spanning continents and decades’ (The Times)

‘Engaging and charming’ (Penny Vincenzi) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Wow, wow and wow again!! I read Songs of Love and War and was totally blown away by it, so I was absolutely thrilled to discover that it was the first part of a trilogy and I immediately pre-ordered part two. As soon as Daughters of Castle Deverill appeared on my kindle, I literally dived in. I never dreamt that part two could be anywhere near as good as part one, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

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.

I have just finished this second volume of what is to be a trilogy. I have found these books fascinating and gripping as the author fills out the stories of her main and minor characters. She writes in a modern, easy style, even though she is describing life in Ireland and England in the first quarter of the twentieth century. In her acknowledgements she pays tribute to Tim Kelly for research and guidance. He obviously has been a great help, for I have been surprised at her detailed knowledge of church life and all things Irish. The only little error I see is in using 'codding' instead of 'coddin,' meaning to jest.I don't think an Irish person would ever use the former; it would always be 'coddin.' The characters in both books are well described and completely believable. The ethos of the books is somewhat modern bearing in mind the period described, having witchcraft, adultery, homosexuality, ghosts and murder in the story. The view of the after life is somewhat unorthodox, with disembodied souls lurking around Deverill Castle and communicating with those with the gift of spiritual discernment. But carries its own charm and forms a background to both stories. I have very much enjoyed reading these books and look forward to the third volume.

Another great read although not a holiday book especially if you are flying as it is a bit chunky (500 pages)
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.

As usual Santander Montefiore an excellent readable book, with lots of back stories, making this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Make sure you read the books in the right order. Well researched and well written. One of those books that I couldn't wait to go to bed to read, and then couldn't put down.

The second book about the Deverills and it doesn't disappoint and makes you want to visit Ireland. The characters are varied and interesting but unlike the first book 'songs of love nad war' I didn't find myself drawn to one particular person. The book takes you to London and South Africa which adds to the story. I look forward to reading another book about this family. I thoroughly recommend Santa Montfiore for anyone who enjoys romance, history and strong characters.

Santa Montefiore has excelled her self with the first two Castle Deverill books. I have enjoyed reading her other books but these two are wonderful. The characters are described so well, their social interaction, the intrigue and relationships and how their lives are centred round their passions for Ireland and Castle Deverill. Fantastic.

Like all Santa Montefiore's books I couldn't put it down! I have read the two which precede it and have ordered the sequel.
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.
