Starting with book one, have enjoyed every book. Historical fiction at its best. New fan of Philippa Carr. To fully appreciate this collection start with Miracle at St Bruno's.

Voices in a Haunted Room written in 1984 is the sequel to The Knave of Hearts written in 1983. Because of the unrest in France against the lives of the aristocrats which was at the start of the Revolution, Claudine's widowed mother Charlotte Tourville (Lottie) is persuaded by her father Comte Gerald d'Aubigne and her friend, Richard (Dickon) Frenshaw to return to the family ancestral home in England called Eversleigh now owned by Dickon. Her mother brought Claudine and her brother, Charlot and Louis-Charles with her to England. Lousie-Charles is the son of Lottie's French friend and lady's maid, Lisette. If you read The Knave of Hearts first you will find out more of Lisette's life growing up with Charlotte and Lisette's mistaken death by her own French people. Claudine was fourteen when they arrived at Eversleigh. Dickon has twin sons by his wife who died when the twins were born and they are a few years older than Claudine. When Claudine's mother later marries Dickon the twins became her step-brothers and both have a very special interest in her. This becomes an amorous triangle that runs until the end of the story. Which brother will she marry? This story is full of suspense as they are dealing with French spies and the dramatic rescue of family still in France. There is romance and conspiracy, and it has a suspenseful climax. You will also learn a lot about the French Revolution. The Return of the Gypsy should be read after this then Midsummer's Eve.
