About this deal

I am so excited to see what happens to these adoring characters and I am hoping the series finishes on a bang but a nice bang if that is possible. Si pensaba que la primera parte había sido increíble, esta segunda parte se ha llevado la delantera! 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. 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 story continues, it's 1925 and a new owner moves into the castle, but after a massive refurbishment there is a shocking discovery.

Our son came up with the idea when he was six years old and it's now being made into a movie by Fox Disney, which is beyond exciting.

Born in England in 1970 Santa Montefiore grew up on a farm in Hampshire and was educated at Sherborne School for Girls. The sweeping nature of the novel and the grandness in scale, makes it a wonderful romantic saga to get lost in. La verdad es que desde el principio he tenido una conexión brutal con esta trilogía, pero esta segunda parte ha superado en mi opinión a la anterior. So much angst over love, unrequited love, adulterous love, jealousy over misunderstandings that could easily be cleared up with a conversation, shady business dealings involving South African diamonds, and half hearted revenge plots x 2. She has also co-authored the Royal Rabbits of London series with her husband, the historian and author Simon Sebag-Montefiore.

The first book kept me rivited from first till last, and I expected the same thrill with the second one. I didn't think I had another in me, but here I am, celebrating my twenty-first and polishing my twenty-second for publication next year!All the characters from the first book are here with the addition of new off spring as the years progress. It's a touch of Downton Abbey along with rural hard living families spanning a time period of 1925 to 1938 (book 2). Montefiore does a great job of including pieces of background from the previous novel to ensure an easy transition for the reader. Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot).

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. It lacks the intimacy of the first book, and the feisty characters I'd loved first time round have now become two-dimensional and irritating. So many story lines weaving together, leaving the reader with great anticipation about what happens next.

En mi opinión, es incluso mejor, y ya no puedo esperar para ver como acaba todo el la última entrega de la trilogía. In het begin moest ik lang nadenken wie wie ook al weer was, maar er staat een stamboom van de Deverills voor in het boek, wat het makkelijker maakte. And the exceptionally compelling, well-paced plot is filled with familial dynamics, drama, emotion, self-discovery, secrets, revelations, love, loss, heartbreak, courage, duty, and passion all surrounded by authentic historical events of the time. Don’t try to read it by itself, it’s too complicated a story and it needs the enrichment from the beginning. I live in London but rent a cottage in Hampshire, which is where I bolt to when I can no longer take the pace of the city and need to spend time in nature to find peace.
