Waiting on Wednesday: The Daughters of Ireland

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Daughters of Ireland by Santa Montefiore
Pub. Date: August 15, 2017



Goodreads says, "Ireland. 1925.  The war is over. But life will never be the same... 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."

I absolutely fell in love with The Girl in the Castle when I read it last year and this is the sequel. If you love historical fiction, definitely give this series a try. I definitely think it's underrated! Also, I am in love with this cover! What do you guys think?

  4. I saw this one on LibraryThing the other day and was totally drawn to the cover, too. And of course, the Irish setting. I'll have to check out the first one first, but this one looks intriguing!
