'Nobody does epic romance like Santa Montefiore' JOJO MOYES
Pure escapism on every page, The Distant Shores tells the story of a family torn apart, and the woman who will bring them back together.
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.
Will the family ever succeed in healing rifts that have been centuries in the making?

This is the fifth book of the Deverill series and again the author has provided a great story and a captivating read. Margot Hart has travelled to Ireland to write a biography on the Deverill family. As the author in residence at what was the family castle Margot sets to uncovering secrets that were never to be told. As well as being part of a series, the book could be an individual read, as characters from previous books are introduced in the first few chapters. This book doesn’t disappoint, there is good description that one could imagine being there and the characters are likeable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the author didn’t disappoint. A definite recommendation.
