Philippa Carr book The Miracle at St. Bruno’s presents new side to this dangerous and tragic time and it is a wonderful mixture about history and fiction. The story about Damask Farland’s life is very enchanting.

Philippa Carr book The Miracle at St. It presents its reader with very strong emotions – love, fear, hate, suspense, frustration, tenderness, trust and faith.

The hero, Bruno, is a Byronic figure, thinking himself superior to all other men, capable of achieving his every goal, and impervious to danger. He disappears and then reappears, obtaining the Priory of St. Bruno's and rebuilding it. One of the supporting characters undergoes a drastic, unexplained change from a manipulative rival to a concerned friend of Damask's. It was extremely difficult to put the book down.

So this was the miracle of St. Bruno’s Abbey. Poor souls! Up to St. Bruno’s for a night’s shelter, a bite to eat and a blessing and then to the Big House for tansy and saffron. Soon the news spread through the countryside and people traveled far to visit the blessed spot. They brought gifts for the Child like the wise men of old and in the years that followed rich men and women remembered St. Bruno’s in their wills; so that in due time the Abbey, which had been in dire decline-a fact which caused its Abbot grave concern-became one of the most prosperous in the south of England.

Publisher: Isis Audio Books, 2001. Another novel from the author of many books including "The Witch from the Sea", "Lament for a Lost Lover" and "The Return of the Gipsy".

The first book in Philippa Carr’s celebrated Daughters of England series is at once a love story, a mystery, and an epic historical saga set during the tumultuous reign of Henry VIII Damask Farland, named after a rose, is captivated by the mysterious orphan Bruno. Discovered upon the abbey altar on Christmas morning, then raised by monks, Bruno becomes the great man whom Damask grows to love-only to be shattered by his cruel betrayal

Bruno’s The Shadow of the Ax AN IMPERIOUS LETTER CAME from Kate, brought by one of Lord Remus’s servants ere always laid for any travelers who might call. There was usually someone-footsore and weary; they all knew of the benevolence of Lawyer Farland who had the reputation for never turning any away. Conversation at our table was usually interesting because as my father said it was stimulating to hear new views

Another novel from the author of many books including The Witch from the Sea, Lament for a Lost Lover and The Return of the Gipsy. This is the first novel of the all time popular "Cornwall Saga" written by Philippa Carr (Who is also Victoria Holt. As always,her attention to the detail of historical facts is, in my opinion, matchless. The data is not only superbly correct from a historical standpoint but she can somehow make the most minute fact seem of interest.

Carr sets up a dual narrative in this Tudor Gothic novel: all the Court action of Henry VIII's six wives, wars, executions, religious changes, etc takes place off site. It's reported, not depicted. Even the dissolution of the monastery next door to the heroine's home, the Carthusian Priory of St. Bruno's, is mentioned at arm's length.

The heroine's name is Damask (named for a rose) and she and her father are fictional versions of Margaret More Roper and St. Thomas More, even down to the beheading of the fathers. Except for the historical action conducted in London and at Court, this is a typical Gothic novel, the kind Jane Austen mocked in "Northanger Abbey". The ruined monastery, rumors of it being haunted, the secret love affairs, the hidden source of riches, the witch in the forest, who seems both to curse and to love the heroine, the mysterious spouse, etc: all Gothic elements.

Carr's Tudor history, especially the reportage of Anne Boleyn's rise and fall, is sometimes a little shaky. For example, Mary I was not called "Bloody Mary" during her reign--that came later. The religious changes of the Tudor monarchs create the atmosphere of danger in the family, but except for Damask's mother becoming convinced of the validity of the New Religion, there are few signs of religious fervor, apart from the dispersed monks who come back together in the monastery as it is being rebuilt. Even the father's heroism is muted by the fact that Catholic prayer and worship never seem to be part of the household or Damask's upbringing. The Carthusians next door are a source of fascination not devotion. The hero, Bruno, is a Byronic figure, thinking himself superior to all other men, capable of achieving his every goal, and impervious to danger. He disappears and then reappears, obtaining the Priory of St. Bruno's and rebuilding it.

One of the supporting characters undergoes a drastic, unexplained change from a manipulative rival to a concerned friend of Damask's. Everything happens to Damask, who takes a strangely modern view of religious toleration with a live and let live attitude foreign to the 16th century. At the end of the novel, the promise of the new reign of Elizabeth seems to suggest that all the conflicts of the past 20 years are over, which is risible.

For 99 cents on Kindle, it's a fast read, but there are long sections where nothing happens and Carr attempts to maintain some tension without great success: the reader knows what will be revealed at the end, and has as soon as the hero reappears in the story. The miracle is that you'll probably keep reading the book until Carr reveals the secret.

I Chose a five star rating for this book, because of all the Philippa Carr's novels that I have read, Miracle at Saint Brunos is the most enjoyable of all of her books. It was extremely difficult to put the book down. I love the way the author marries history, excitement, intrigue and the loves and hates of her characters all into one fantastic idea. The condition of the book that I recieved could have been in better condition; but for the price that I purchased it, in reality it was a good bargain. I would tell all of Philippa Carr's fans to read this novel. Trust me; you will not be disappointed.

I have read all of the books and each sequel that she penned under Philippa Carr. She also wrote under the name of Victoria Holt, another 5 star book series and Jean Plaidy. Each pen name wrote about the different levels of the people from England from the Kings and Queens down to the poorer people of England. I think any book one reads of her different pen names will find love, heartache and mystery. I love every book she ever wrote. The violence is not constant in the book nor is the sexual content. I would highly recommend her books to anyone that enjoys the lifestyle of England, a murder mystery and a good love story all in one.

This book is set during the Tudor reigns and tells how the people of England were affected and the fear, uncertainty and sometimes horror that they lived with--so I give it high marks for revealing a side we don't often see. The story itself was interesting and believable. Other books talk about the closing of the monasteries, but this book shows what it actually meant along with the religious confusion of the period.

However, there were many plot turns that were totally predictable and obvious way before the reveal.

It seemed the women were pretty much divided into madonnas and whores and the madonnas were totally obsessed with motherhood to the point of being oblivious to all else--it is their reason for existence. It also maintained that it was natural and unavoidable that a woman love the child of her body more than the adopted child. It has been my observation that this is not true.

In the end I found most of the characters to be unlikeable and unsympathic, even the main character who I liked at first. In my opinion, a few editing changes would have made this a great book as the overall story is well worth telling.

I am a student of Tudor history and expected to enjoy this book. I cannot argue with the author's knowledge of history. She, however, did what I would have thought impossible. She turned this fascinating era into one long bore. I can only call it a penny dreadful.

This seemed to actually be two books. Written in first person, the stories flowed well and kept my interest, but neither story really ended, and when I finished the book it seemed there should have been another one to follow to bring the story to a conclusion, but nothing was suggested. As a historical novel, there were lots of interesting facts thrown in, and life Pre-Elizabethan England was portrayed with great detail. There were lots of characters and it was easy to keep them separate.

I continued to read hoping for better character development, plot twists, or anything unpredictable. I seriously tried to find out if I was reading a book intended for 12 year olds. Dialogue was flat, stunted and rudimentary.
Remember reading this years ago. Love Philippa Carr/Jean Plaidy/Victoria Holt. Read almost all of her books. They were the first "adult" books my parents let me read. I loved the premise of this one, the need to believe in the miracle, the solving of what actually happened, etc. Bought this on the kindle for a good price -- definitely worth it!
