    1. Part of a series of mother to daughter generations stories telling the history of England from Henry VIII to WW II. Fabulous to read them all in order. Each one is a gem; each is surprising and well written. Gothic style romance in every era


    2. A Passionate Story of Betrayal and LoveSometimes Victoria Holt surprises me. The Demon Lover was one of those books (a bodice ripper!). And this is another, because it deals with the heroine’s adultery. It follows Knave of Hearts, which I loved, and is a part of the Daughters of England series.Raised in the grand chateau of Tourville in France, young Claudine, with her widowed mother, flees the France as revolution arrives. In England, at her mother's ancestral home, Claudine finds friendship [...]


    3. This historical fiction set in England during the French Revolution was not what I expected at all. I wanted a ghost story but instead I received an almost trashy sort of forbidden love triangle. The protagonist whined and ranted about her sin with the forbidden brother every time they met and that really grated on my nerves. Thankfully, that mostly stopped by the middle of the book or I would have just stopped the book. The rest of it, although not bad, was more of a mystery/adventure story wit [...]


    4. This was my favourite book when I was 13! I recently found it again and reread it having not read it in full for a good decade. I remember it being very racy and naughty but now I found it a littledate ;) having said that it has lost none of its charm. I just found that I didn't like the heroine as much as I did back then, and the writing does lack vitality and oomph in places. The period it covers (England during the french revolution) is interesting but it was definitely nostalgia for my roman [...]


    5. My 2nd favorite of this series! Still gives me the goose bumps when I think of certain scenes - the haunting English manors that drew me in long before I ever heard of Jane Austen or fell in love with her work.This author does such an excellent job of 'setting the scene' and I adore authors that give so much details - I honestly believe it's why I still love that aspect of reading even to this day.


    6. Overall I guess I liked the story, kind of like a spy novel, but you don't know that at first. It was more of a love triangle between the heroine and her 2 suitors who happened to be twins but of totally different natures. It did hold my interest although it lagged in a few places, but I enjoyed the read.


    7. It's just ok. Wordy and IMHO an almost ridiculous and rather unbelievable home situation at 17 for this protagonist. Contrived, very, for that period in history to have such a combined family with twin brothers both available as prospective mates. But that wasn't why the 2 star and not a 3. It just got way too bodice ripper over plot for me.


    8. The most interesting idea of this book is the use of suspense which is the key factor in making the reader turn up the next page was really heart catching even though my actor didnt make it through the very end of the novel. Why did Jonathan have to die and worst of all a cheap death.


    9. KurzbeschreibungDie junge Französin Claudine zieht zu Verwandten auf deren englischen Landsitz. Doch schon bald befindet sie sich im Widerstreit ihrer Gefühle: Sie kann sich nicht zwischen ihren beiden Stiefbrüdern entscheiden. Ein fatales Dreiecksverhältnis entsteht


    10. This is another book in Philippa Carr's Daughters of England series. With each book I read, I understand the family better and like each book better than the other.




    11. Interesting spy element in this one. Would have liked a bit more about English politics during this period.
