    1. Philippa Carr was a favorite author of mine when I was young, and now I am rereading them in order I didn t realize the first time that I read them that if you start with The Miracle at St Bruno s and read them in order, the story continues on and on It s fun to read them that way They start out in 1600s England, with a historical background There is rmance and intrigue, and I find myself thinking they are racier than I remembered, but you just know they have sex, it isn t described Philiipa Car [...]


    2. Part of a series of mother to daughter generations stories telling the history of England from Henry VIII to WW II Fabulous to read them all in order Each one is a gem each is surprising and well written Read this one years ago when you could find the series hit and miss at the grocery store nice to be able to read them in order on kindle.a good read, as all her books are.


    3. Saraband for two sisters by Philippa Carr Against the backdrop of seventeenth century England, a time of bloody revolt and new beginnings twin sisters discover the ties that bind them can also tear them apart.




    4. A tale with a twin narrative shared by twin sisters.Angelet Bersaba take turns in detailing their lives, mainly during the period 1639 41 This approach works well, as the sisters have distinct personalities I like both leading ladies very much, especially Bersaba, as she has unfathomable depths.I found the book engaging from start to finish The closing chapters are very moving, largely through the author s good work in making me care for the characters.There s also some good humour here and ther [...]


    5. Set at the end of Charles I reign, this is the story of twin sisters whose husbands are on opposite sides of the Civil War There is a secret tunnel, a mad housekeeper, sleeping potions, a child hidden behind a high castle wallwhat s not to like


    6. I remember reading this one as a teen, at the time my goal was to read every single Victoria Holt Philippa Carr ever written Philippa Carr lures you in with the promise of romance but there is the added benefit of learning quite a bit about British history


    7. Identical twins Angelet and Bersaba Landor s lives become entangled with the conflicts of the Royalists and Puritans in England Complications arise when both girls fall in love with a man who conceals many secrets Very suspenseful.


    8. I can appreciate the device of using tension between twins to mirror the tension between the Cavaliers and Roundheads, but the additional gothic furbelows made this tale a tad too obvious.




    9. this has always been an interesting book to me2 sistersins.with lives intertwined so tightly they can never part It s a great story.



    10. I ve read this series beforejust going through them again Really like the background history in them Very enjoyablet to heavy.


    11. Very good, shocking ending Not as repetitive as some of the other titles in the series I am really enjoying this series.



    12. This is the first of the Daughters of England books that I really enjoyed and would recommend no a hole men who think it s okay to lie cheat steal rape themselves into a marriage I m looking forward to the continuing story of Bersaba and her family


    13. I read this entire series when it was first published Now on Kindle, I m trying again somethings don t hold up over time, but many things do It s interesting to reread I m not sure I ll finish the series again there are so many unread books.
