Overview


Set partly in Revolutionary Paris, and partly in romantic Cumbria, Judith Paris is the story of the two very different men who love Walpole's most delightful heroine.

Daughter of Francis Herries and Mirabell Starr, Judith was described on publication as 'the most delightful of Walpole's heroines'. As impetuous, impulsive and passionate as her father, she is torn between her ambitions and her love of the wild beauty of the Lakes. Set partly in Paris during the French Revolution, and partly in the unforgettably romantic Cumbrian hamlet of Watendlath, it is the story of the two very different men who love her, and is both comic and moving, by turns tragic and triumphant. The second of the Herries Chronicles, it sold 20,000 copies in its first week of publication in 1931.

    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    The second volume in the Herries Chronicle, it's the story of tempestuous Judith Herries, daughter of Rogue Herries. Both her parents die on the day she's born, and she's raised by her half brother David, who's 55 years older than she. She marries Georges Paris, a smuggler and gambler, and is unhappy with him. When Georges is violently killed by an avenging father, Judith goes to live with nephew Francis and his wife. A feud breaks out in the Herries household, which is carried over into the next novel in the Chronicle (THE FORTRESS). Judith has an affair with Warren Foster, leaves him, but has a child by him.

    The story is a strong one, though saturated with violence (Judith's husband, nephew and lover all die in the story). The character portrayals are good, especially of Judith and Jennifer Cards, Francis's wife and initiator of the feud. The final quarter of the book is not as good as what came before; Judith's sudden delivery of her son is hard to believe, and the action from that point on drags. The book is set during the early years of the 18th century. Among the better of Walpole's novels.
