International sensation Santa Montefiore presents the first
book in a trilogy that follows three Irish women through the
decades of the twentieth centuryâ€”perfect for fans of Kate
Morton and Hazel Gaynor.
Born on the ninth day of the ninth month in the year 1900,
Kitty Deverill is special as her grandmother has always told
her. Built on the stunning green hills of West Cork,
Ireland, Castle Deverill is Kittyâ€™s beloved home, where many
generations of Deverills have also resided. Although sheâ€™s
Anglo-Irish, Kittyâ€™s heart completely belongs to the wild
countryside of the Emerald Isle, and her devotion to her
Irish-Catholic friends Bridie Doyle, the daughter of the
castleâ€™s cook, and Jack Oâ€™Leary, the vetâ€™s son, is
unmatchedâ€”even if Jack is always reminding her that she
isnâ€™t fully Irish. Still, Jack and Kitty canâ€™t help falling
in love although they both know their union faces the
greatest obstacles since they are from different worlds.
Bridie cherishes her friendship with Kitty, who makes her
feel more like her equal than a servant. Yet she canâ€™t help
dreaming of someday having all the wealth and glamour
Kittyâ€™s station in life affords her. But when she discovers
a secret that Kitty has been keeping from her, Bridie finds
herself growing resentful toward the girl in the castle who
seems to have it all.
When the Irish revolt to throw over British rule in Southern
Ireland, Jack enlists to fight. Worried for her safety, Jack
warns Kitty to keep her distance, but she refuses and throws
herself into the cause for Irish liberty, running messages
and ammunition between the rebels. But as Kitty soon
discovers, her allegiance to her family and her friends will
be testedâ€”and when Castle Deverill comes under attack, the
only home and life sheâ€™s ever known are threatened.
A powerful story of love, loyalty, and friendship, The
Girl in the Castle is an exquisitely written novel set
against the magical, captivating landscape of Ireland.
