About The Book

Margot Hart travels to Ireland to write a biography of the famous Deverill family. She knows she must speak to the current Lord Deverill – JP – if she is to uncover the secrets of the past. A notorious recluse, JP won’t be an easy man to crack. But Margot is determined – and she is not a woman who is easily put off.
What she never expected was to form a close bond with JP and be drawn into his family disputes. Shouldering the blame for running up debts that forced him to sell the family castle, JP is isolated and vulnerable. With help from his handsome son Colm, it seems as though Margot might be the only one who can restore JP’s fortunes.


My Thoughts

This is a story to remember us that what moves the world is not power or money; but family, love and forgiveness. You can have all the money in the world, but without someone on your side that you love and trust, the money becomes a burden and it loses all the meaning. I am not only referring the “love” as with a partner, because family and friends are loved too, this is a book that will state this loud and clear; how to loose a castle in 300 years but not missing it at all!
I’ll say from the beginning that I loved this book, Santa Montefiore is one of my favorite romance authors, because the stories transmit so much emotion and feelings that are impossible to forget.
This is a story inside a story; when the author Margot Hart decides to travel to Ireland to write the biography she is not expecting to be so much involved in this family. Because even if she does not expect to have all the family on board with her project, she would have never imagined how this family will become so important to her.
The story is told between Margot and Kitty, a ghost from the Deverill family that is ready to do anything in her “powers” to see the castle returned to her family.
This is a beautiful and emotive story, all the characters have something to say and to share, it’s impossible to not let them be part of our life and hope that this is not just a fiction story but something that really exist!
Are you ready for “The Distant Shores”?
