Description

Ireland. The early twentieth century.

Two girls on the cusp of womanhood. A nation on the brink of war.

Read their story — and seewhy JOJO Moyes says that "Nobody does epic romance like Santa Montefiore." 

Born on the ninth day of the ninth month in the year 1900, Kitty Deverill grows up in Castle Deverill, on the sunning green ghills of West Cork, Ireland — the same place her ancestors have always dwelled. She isn't fully Irish, as the son of the local veterinarian likes to tease her; but this doesn't stop Kitty and Jack O'Leary from falling in love...

Bridie Doyle, daughter to Castle Deverill's cook, cherishes her friendship with Kitty. Yet she can’t help dreaming of someday having wealth, having glamour, having... more. And when she discovers Kitty's darkest secret, Bridie finds herself growing to resent the girl in the castle who seems to have it all.

As Irish and British forces collide in Southern Ireland, Jack enlists to fight — and Kitty throws herself into the cause for Irish liberty, running messages and ammunition between the rebels. But , her allegiance to her family and her friends will soon be tested... and when Castle Deverill comes under attack, the only home and life she’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 — perfect for fans of DOWNTON ABBEY and KATE MORTON.

        Starred review from September 15, 2016

        Set against the tumultuous backdrop of Ireland's fight for independence from Britain in the early 20th century, this sprawling saga gives readers a personal view of the "Troubles," as seen through the eyes of a daughter of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy in its last days. In spite of her heritage, Kitty Deverill knows herself to be Irish to the bone, and English not at all. The fiery Kitty fights for the land she loves, even as she realizes that there may be no place for her in an independent Ireland. Her story of wealth and privilege contrasts with that of her childhood friend Bridie, an Irish Catholic village girl whose family has worked for the Deverills for centuries. As the Troubles and their aftermath shatter lifetime relationships between the classes, Kitty and Bridie flee in opposite directions--Kitty to glittering parties in London, Bridie to a life of service in America. But neither forgets their sisterhood, or the home that shaped them both. VERDICT Montefiore's (The Beekeeper's Daughter) compelling family saga, the first in a trilogy, is highly recommended, particularly for lovers of Irish fiction and/or stories of World War I and the 1920s, as well as those who enjoy novels about the enduring power of women's friendships.--Marlene Harris, Reading Reality, LLC, Duluth, GA

        Starred review from August 1, 2016
        The prolific Montefiore (The Beekeeper's Daughter, 2015) presents the first volume of a trilogy guaranteed to hit the bestseller list. The riveting saga revolves around three memorable women, each caught up in different ways by historical events and social circumstances. Kitty Deverill, the titular girl in the castle, is an Anglo-Irish aristocrat with seemingly unbreakable ties to Bridie Doyle, daughter of the castle's cook; Jack O'Leary, the local vet's son and her secret love; and Celia Deverill, her British cousin. Fiercely passionate and loyal, Kitty's bonds to her friends and family are severely tested during WWI and the onset of the Troubles. With Jack firmly involved in the struggle for Ireland's independence, her privileged and protected position as a Deverill becomes increasingly untenable. Interweaving Kitty's personal story and the momentous events of the time, Montefiori portrays a woman perched precariously between two worlds who eventually emerges and comes into sharp focus. Secrets abound, friendships are fractured, and life-altering decisions are made in a delicious read that leaves the reader hungry and eagerly awaiting the next course.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
