What you need to know before your trail

A new generation of the Deverill family is waiting in the wings – Martha Wallace came to Dublin from her home in America to find her birth mother. But instead she has lost her heart to the impossibly charming JP Deverill. Then she discovers that her mother comes from the same place as JP, and her fate seems sealed.

Bridie Doyle, now Countess di Marcantonio and mistress of Castle Deverill, is determined to make the castle she used to work in her home. But her  husband Cesare has other ideas. His eye strays away from his wife, and people start to  wonder if he really is who he says he is.

Meanwhile Kitty Deverill has come to terms with her life with her husband Robert, and their two children. But then Jack O’Leary, the love of her life, returns to Ballinakelly.


Travel Guide

County Cork castles

Of course there is no Castle Deverill in Ireland but there are plenty of castles you could go to an dimagine you’re right inside the novel for real:

Castle Deverill and the Deverill famlily have been through some difficult times. We met them in book one Songs of Love and War which chronicled the fate of them, their home and of Ireland itself from 1900 until the war. Through the war and the war of Irish Independence.

In Daughters of Castle Deverill, we take events up from 1925, when the world is changing, debts and investments from the past come back to haunt in the great crash of 1929. Family members,no longer living at Castle Deverill are now living in York and Connecticut. The pull of the castle and Ireland however continues to enchant.

In the third installment, we’re back to the castle and at the heart of more family drama in a unique setting.
