    I ve always been a fan of big fat sagas, and Cashelmara did not disappoint Set in Ireland in the 19th century, we follow three generations of the wealthy de Salis family As with all sagas, secrets and scandals abound, but the twist here is that the fictional de Salises are based on Edwards I, II and III of England.If you know the three Edwards, you ll be looking out for the characters that take on the roles of Piers Gaveston, Hugh Despenser, Queen Isabella and Roger Mortimer knowing how the s I ve always been a fan of big fat sagas, and Cashelmara did not disappoint Set in Ireland in the ...

    Susan Howatch s Cashelmara is one rollercoaster of a ride One of the blurbs on the book calls it another blockbuster , and gauging the heftiness of Howatch s books this one weighs in at just over 700 pages I think I know what that means It s the sort of story that you literally lose yourself in Howatch, and other authors who write wrote blockbusters most notably in the 1970s and 80s it seems know just how much fishing line to dangle in front of the reader before reeling it all back Susan Howatch s Cashelmara is one rollercoaster of a ride One of the blurbs on the book calls it another blockbuster , and gauging...
