Summary

Summary

Ireland. 1925. The war is over. But life will never be the same...

"Everything Santa Montefiore writes, she writes from the heart,” says JOJO MOYES. See why in this unforgettable story of love, loss, and life, perfect for fans of DOWNTON ABBEY and KATE MORTON.

In the green hills of West Cork, Ireland, Castle Deverill has burned to the ground. But young Celia Deverill is determined to see her ruined ancestral home restored to its former glory — to the years when Celia ran through its vast halls with her cousin Kitty and their childhood friend Bridie Doyle.

Kitty herself is raising a young family, but she longs for Jack O’Leary — the long-ago sweetheart she cannot have. And soon Kitty must make a heartbreaking decision, one that could destroy everything she holds dear.

Bridie, once a cook's daugher in Castle Deverill, is now a well-heeled New York City socialite. Yet her celebrity can't erase a past act that haunts her still. Nor can it keep her from seeking revenge upon the woman who wronged her all those years ago.

As these three daughters of Ireland seek to make their way in a world once again beset by dark forces, Santa Montefiore shows us once more why she is one of the best-loved storytellers at work today.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nobody does epic romance like Santa Montefiore. Everything she writes, she writes from the heart.” Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A highly romantic drama in the vein of Downton Abbey…Montefiore instinctively knows how to drive a story forward and keep readers engrossed. This is excellent storytelling!” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“For lovers of meaty family sagas, the Deverills are rich and dysfunctional in just the ways that make their adventures and tribulations so much fun to read.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Readers of Montefiore’s The Girl in the Castle will relish this equally juicy sequel…Guaranteed to satisfy the appetites of fans of meaty family sagas.” Booklist
