Book Review: The Secrets of Sainte Madeleine By Tilly Bagshawe


Sweeping through the 1920s to WWII and beyond, this is the story of the Salignac family – the loves that bind them, the secrets that threaten to divide them, and the chateau that will always call them home.

Deep in the French countryside, inside the walls of a family chateau, a remarkable legacy awaits . . .


Enjoyable but very long.
50 years between the Salignac and Seward families over the place of Sainte Madeleine.
This novel moves very slowly. It does cover a lot of topics though: from Love, Death, Betrayal, Family.

The characters are likeable mostly. Overall it is a peaceful read but the pace of this read does not suit me.

3/5 Stars
