Summary

It is 1925, and the war is long over. But much has been lost, and life will never be quite the same. Castle Deverill, cherished ancestral home to the Deverill family in the west of Ireland, has burned to the ground.

Young and flighty Celia Deverill is determined to restore the sad ruins to its former glory. But dark shadows are gathering once more as the financial markets start to shake, and everything that felt so certain is thrown once again into doubt....

Daughters of Castle Deverill part 2

Where does Daughters of Castle Deverill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fabulous story with lots of twists and turns. As in Part 1 and 2 the story finished abruptly so I am hoping there will be a part 3! I would so like to see how all the characters lives pan out.

What did you like best about this story?

Never a dull moment, wanted to keep listening

Have you listened to any of Genevieve Swallow’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Genevieve Swallow read part 1 of Songs of Love and War about the O'Learys and Deverills which I enjoyed but part 2 has been even better. There are many characters in this part and Genevieve carried off the different voices well.

Any additional comments?

This audio has been one of the best books I have listened to!

You need to do book 1 before you listen to this

You need to do book 1 before listening to this one, otherwise you're missing half the story.

Good story, narrated very well. Takes nearly 50 hours though to do all three books. You can't just read this book without doing the other two, the ending is only at book 3.

Enjoy!

Most Enjoyable

Loved it and didn't want it to finish. It could have gone on for a few more chapters to tie up the loose ends.

Good story irritating narration

I enjoyed both the first book and this one as the story really draws you into the lives of the characters. However the accents are awful. As an irish person who grew up in South Africa I found both accents extremely poor and irritating. I want to get the last book to see what happens but not sure as the accents are putting me off.

Part 2

It was not as good as the first part, but it's the middle so it has a lot of substance. It keeps the story going and I can't wait for the last part!
I'm not sure why it's not available on audible??? It is available when I search but when I sign in it's not. Kinda disappointing Audible!
Anyway, hopefully it will be shortly!

2nd book in the series of 4

Wish the 3rd book was steady out. The suspense of the castle will be worth the wait. Another great book
