The Distant Shores

The escapist summer read of 2021 from the Sunday Times Number One bestselling author

THE BRAND NEW NOVEL FROM THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR
 
'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?
