'Santa Montefiore at her best - an enchanting read overflowing with deliciously poignant moments' (Dinah Jefferies, author of The Tea Planter's Wife)
‘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)
From the Inside Flap
Their lives were mapped out ahead of them. But love and war will change everything... Castle Deverill, nestled in the rolling Irish hills, is home to three very different women: flame-haired Kitty Deverill, her best friend and daughter of the castle's cook, Bridie Doyle, and her flamboyant English cousin, Celia Deverill.
When war breaks out, the lives of all three are changed forever.
Wrenched apart by betrayal, their world turned to ash, the girls' friendship seems all but lost as they are swept to different parts of the globe. Yet, they have one thing in common: a fierce and unwavering longing for Castle Deverill and all the memories contained within it.

The story of the castle, its curse...yes a curse, and its ghosts with their hidden secrets is wonderfully atmospheric. It’s told by three different women - two from the upper classes, the Deverill’s themselves and one, a maid at the castle.
There’s so much to this novel. The rich detail and sumptuous setting catch your eye on every page, but it’s the way that the story of Ireland, its history, its people and its political divides as well as class divides are woven together that really captured my attention.
I’m now calling Santa the Rumpelstiltskin of the literature world for her weaving abilities. At the end you do indeed have a historical tale which shines.
