Easy read.

This woman, Victoria Holt, uses a lot of the same plot devices over and over again.

In this book the bottomless pit and secretive monk both make encore appearances.

It's listed as a historical fiction but mostly it's just an anemic romance. I think it's supposed to be suspense and intrigue, though.

The heroine loses her unremarkable (and mostly absent) hero to a much younger woman.
Since I love Victoria Holt I decided to read Philippa Carr since that is another of her psedo-names (and actually, Victoria Holt is also a psedo-name). Also, when I lived in Ireland I saw that Philippa Carr was a very well-known author there (even though she is not alive anymore). I enjoyed reading this book since it is also connected to LOVE CHILD, which I had already read. I wish I had the gotten the whole series and read them in order, but I am finding them here and there at thrift stores and ...more

Interesting story line I suppose, but there seemed to be something lacking at the conclusion of the story. For one, the main protagonist suddenly lost her ability to understand subtleties that she used to catch so readily early in the story. The narration also initially hinted at some deep revelation in the future that never really materialized. Nonetheless, it was an entertaining read on a lazy Sunday morning.
I am rereading all of these books, so the story continues. Philippa Carr wrote so well that it is always fun to read one of her many books, no matter what name she wrote under. Her real name was Victoria Holt and she wrote under Jean Plaidy also, and many more. I liked her best as Philippa Carr, however.
This is not one of the Daughters of England series but a separate release of the same story.

  • Snare of Serpents
Eleanor Alice Burford, Mrs. George Percival Hibbert was a British author of about 200 historical novels, most of them under the pen name Jean Plaidy which had sold 14 million copies by the time of her death. She chose to use various names because of the differences in subject matter between her books; the best-known, apart from Plaidy, are Victoria Holt (56 million) and Philippa Carr (3 million). ...more
