Daughters of Castle Deverill
Daughters of Castle Deverill | Santa Montefiore
13 posts | 14 read | 18 to read
The sweeping new novel from number one bestselling author Santa Montefiore. It is 1925 and the war is long over. But much has been lost and life will never truly be the same again. Castle Deverill, cherished home to the Deverill family in the west of Ireland for hundreds of years, has burned to the ground. But young and flighty Celia Deverill is determined to restore the sad ruin to its former glory. Celia married well and has the wealth, after all, to keep it in the family and she cannot bear to see it stand neglected. But dark shadows are gathering once more, as the financial markets start to shake. And everything that felt so certain is thrown once again into doubt. A compelling story of family and history, from the author of the top ten bestseller Songs of Love and War.

Mehso-so

Sadly, this is a so-so when the first in the series was a 5-star read! I found myself skipping and skimming through this one since much of it was too predictable and filled with many boring details. 😱 I hope the 3rd one returns to the captivating and page-turning greatness I found in Songs of Love and War.

Probably won't finish it by January 1st, but that's okay.

This installment was just as delicious as the first - the excitement, horror, thrills, pit in my stomach, glee in my smile! I kept trying to predict what would happen next, and would you believe I kept being wrong?! I am anxious to read the next one to find out how it all ends!

This was a second in a series, which I did not realize when I took it out and started to read. But it was a very good story and missing book one still let me in at a very accessible spot.

Oh my goodness what a great second book of the trilogy!!! I think I enjoyed it better than the first. Ireland, London, Africa, America, I traveled all over the world. 💜💜💜

Awhile ago, I saw this book all over GR and IG with rave reviews. The reviews talked me into a book I was pretty sure wouldn't be my cup of tea. It reads like an Irish telenovela. Seriously. All the angst over love, unrequited love, adulterous love, etc. with some shady business dealings and half hearted revenge plots x2. Just not for me... especially with the ending lining up an equally eye roll worthy third book.

Tamra 😶 Me neither - not my kind of book. (edited) 2y
Jess_Read_This @Tamra whew... l'm happy to know I wasn't alone in my pan. I think she tried to do too much with this one and it ended up as a poorly written soap opera. 2y
Tamra @Jess_Read_This to clarify, I haven't read it, but it sounds exactly what I don't want in a book. 😏 Thank you for the heads-up! 2y

Jess_Read_This @Tamra 😂I'm glad I could save you hours of your life that you couldn't get back. 2y
Tamra @Jess_Read_This 👍🏾 My thoughts exactly when I finish something I'm not crazy about. I was really mad when I read The Goldfinch & Gone Girl. Unpopular opinion, I know. I'm all for bailing & am still practicing listening to my instincts. (edited) 2y
Jess_Read_This @Tamra Not at all- unless we are the only two people that think this.. then we can be unpopular together. I read Goldfinch and was perplexed on the hype. I thought it was ok.. my mind was hardly blown by it. And I just skipped Gone Girl all together... 😉I figured I'd be mad at all the wasted time on that one. 2y
Tamra @Jess_Read_This 😆👌🏾 2y

An excellent middle book in what is shaping into an epic trilogy! All of the characters that made their mark in book 1 came back to damage each other some more in their individual quests for happiness in book 2. We also get to meet some new characters that I'm very much looking forward to seeing develop in the final installment. Just wonderful historical fiction! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I haven't been to Ireland, but it's a dream of mine to go. So I always love when it's the setting for a book. This is apparently a trilogy and this is book two. It's my understanding you can read them as stand alones. Can anyone confirm this?

Natalia I just LOVE your photos! 2y
