will and do feel obligated to point out the reasons why I would not recommend it to others I maintain an affiliate account with Amazon and receive compensation for purchases which originate via the Amazon link provided in any given review Friday October 14 2016 The Girl in the Castle by Santa Montefiore Oh how I wanted to love The Girl in the Castle by Santa Montefiore Set in Ireland this is the fictional story of Kitty Deverill The story is set during the Irish Revolution shortly before World War I Kitty lives with her family at Castle Deverill which has been owned by their ancestors for generations Although they are Anglo Irish Kitty feels more connected to Ireland than England and finds herself essentially between two worlds The Girl in the Castle is the first in a trilogy of books that Montefiore is planning to write about the Deverill family This is a great thing if you loved the book and not so great if you aren t feelin the love As I say I wanted to love it but I simply could not I enjoyed learning more about the history of the Irish Revolution It was like getting to know the other half of Tom from Downton Abbey and having his political positions explained more thoroughly It s a time period and situation I know little about which is one of the reasons I was drawn to reading the story in the first place On the whole though I could not relax with the book because aside from Kitty herself I could not admire a single other character Montefiore is a conservative writer by modern standards but not conservative enough for my tastes All of her characters seem bent on destruction in some form or fashion and frequently this involves sexual exploits It s fair to say that if you ve seen Downton Abbey BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to

curious about some of this author& 39 s other books I& 39 ll pass on this one since I struggled through Downton Abbey loved parts others not so much so thanks for saving me a little reading time 1 56
