Product Description:

Previously published in the United Kingdom as DAUGHTERS OF CASTLE DEVERILL

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.



Castle Deverill has been in the family for hundreds of years, but the magnificent building has met a sorry ending. The family won’t accept that their beloved home is no more, but when Celia Deverill Mayberry and her husband, Archie buy the estate and declare their intention to return it to its former glory, the extended family is at once relieved and resigned. Celia has nothing but fond memories of a childhood spent at the castle with her cousins, but one cousin, Kitty Deverill, longs for the days when her father owned the castle.

As construction is completed and Celia and Archie move in, life goes on for the rest of the Deverills and the many other people who share their small community. Their childhood friend, Bridie, is still in New York, married and wealthy to boot. Bridie Doyle has roots as deep as the Deverills in the old castle, but she won’t go back, can’t go back and face what she left behind.

Celia, Kitty and Bridie all have different paths that twist, turn and intersect – and there’s always Castle Deverill at the epicenter of it all. Life will take all three women in very dissimilar directions, but what remains constant is their love for the home that is the very foundation of their lives. A home may be nothing more than wood and stone, but “home” is so very much more than that to Celia, Kitty and Bridie.

The Daughters of Ireland is the second book in author Santa Montefiore’s Deverill Chronicles trilogy, and once more readers will be transported to the beautiful hills of Ireland. Home means everything to this extended family, and Montefiore captures that sentiment wonderfully while still allowing for the changes time and circumstance invariably bring. Several generations of the family are represented, from those that founded the original castle to the recently departed, giving insight to the Deverill family history. It will be interesting to see what comes next with these dynamic, independent women and their offspring! Poignant and charming, this is a substantial family saga readers can sink their teeth into page after page.
