APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Historical fiction fans will adore this wonderful family saga set in a gorgeous castle in West Cork during the years leading up to Irish independence. Santa Montefiore’s story follows childhood friends Kitty and Bridie—one Protestant, the other Catholic—as they come of age and struggle to maintain their bond when war, religion, class and love threaten to pull them apart. With memorable characters and gorgeous scenery, this romantic novel is a fun, fast and completely absorbing read.
This book is so vividly written that the characters come to life as you read. As if you walk along side them as they go through life’s challenges. Strong women characters in their own persona and you can’t help but swept away with their emotions and what they did to survive. Looking forward to read the next challenges for Kitty, Bridie and Celia.
