The ending of this story left me very sad for the state of marriage with the importance of the family's reputation more important than the lives that were destroyed. Margaret Armstrong was ruthless. And Charles was so selfish. The only lovable character was Victoria.
If u loved the house like I did, u will LOVE this. Roll on the next book. So exciting and wonderful characters who I feel I know. Please write faster A O'Connor :)
Wow, such a great book(s). Characters were believable and authentic. History was fascinating. I couldn't put the book down. In fact, I was glad for my kindle so I could quickly order the next 2 books and continue reading. A great book for those who love mystery and history. Books are emotional, authentic, entertaining, characters are alive and real. Without revealing anything, I was amazed at who actually shot Lord Charles, but won't reveal it here. Anyone getting a chance to read this author's books, should do so without delay.
Thoroughly enjoyed it
While I am 6th generation Irish, our people were very poor and immigrated during the Irish Potatoe Famine. By the time I came around, Ireland was NEVER mentioned by any of the elders.
I'm now an "elder", thought it was time I found out about the real history of Ireland.
After reading House, I wanted to read the next book in the series. This tells the story in two time periods about 100 years apart. This has great history about the landed gentry and what this family did to their tenants. This is family drama at its best.
