Pendorric has been looking round the studio, said my father. He has bought the Bay of Naples water color. But there was a magnetism about Roc Pendorric when he set himself out to charm, and he certainly was determined to charm me. Roc came to the studio every day.

Pendorric has been looking round the studio, said my father. I’m glad, I answered. He always took the statuette in his hands and caressed it lovingly.

Bride of Pendorric book. While reading I found Favel's constant unease surprising in one so young (nineteen) but she was completely on her own & married to a man she barely knew.

Pendorric said for me not to. You see, the picture were ther. he picture of that other bride and they did say she’d haunted the place for more than a hundred years trying to lure a bride to take her place. There were two on ’em up there. I swear it, Mrs. Pendorri. ut Mr. Petroc he didn’t want it said.

We need brains in Pendorric. You walk round this countryside and you’ll discover traces of Pendorric in half of the natives. I had a sudden vision of my father at work in the studio, and, as whenever I thought of him I must think also of his death, I knew that a shadow passed across my face. Roc went on quickly: We need brains, now that the days of the grands seigneurs are over.

Eleanor Alice Burford Hibbert (1906–93), better known to readers as Victoria Holt, Philippa Carr, and Jean Plaidy, was one of the world's most beloved and enduring authors. Her career spanned five decades, and she was heralded as the "Queen of Romantic Suspense. She continued to write historical fiction under the name of Jean Plaidy and romantic suspense as Victoria Holt up until the time of her death.

Roc sweeps her off her feet, taking her from her home by an emerald sea to the ancient family home of the Pendorrics, in Cornwall. His sister and her family await them with open arms, welcoming young Favel.

I highly recommend all of Victoria Holts books. Once Favel and Roc arrive at the ancestral home of the Pendorrics on the coast of Cornwall, Favel discovers the family legend of the Bride of Pendorric, where one who died became a ghost until replaced by another

I highly recommend all of Victoria Holts books. Great writing makes for great journeys into other times and other lives. We all need an escape sometimes and these books provide just that. Once Favel and Roc arrive at the ancestral home of the Pendorrics on the coast of Cornwall, Favel discovers the family legend of the Bride of Pendorric, where one who died became a ghost until replaced by another. And the last one, Roc’s mother, Barbarina, died young in a terrible accident. Supposedly she haunts the east wing of the estate.

I read Mistress Of Mellyn just prior to reading this book and though the time frame were very different eras the same formula for the stories are almost identical. I may find this as I re read more of Miss Holt and it will surprise me if I do because I have been reading these books since I was in high school or College. I have them all in hardback. Now that I am in my 60's my hands are arthritic so I read with my iPad. Sadly not all of her books are out for Kindle and iPad. I suspect as new readers want them in this format they will happen. I shall keep a sharp eye for them. I highly recommend all of Victoria Holts books. Great writing makes for great journeys into other times and other lives. We all need an escape sometimes and these books provide just that.

This wasn't nearly as good as Mistress of Mellyn, or The Shivering Sands, the only other two Victoria Holt novels I have read. I enjoyed both of them very much, even if it wasn't difficult to spot the villain. Likewise, in this book, I knew fairly early on what the twist was, as there were at least one or two howlingly obvious clues.

My problem is that this story was pretty dull, and the interesting events and revelations were few and far between. Some of the mysteries were resolved in a rather humdrum, "never mind" kind of way (possible spoiler: the fate of the neighboring millionaire). Another one, the heritage of the child on the moor, had, to my mind, an unlikely explanation, considering the child's appearance.

I really didn't like the H much, and it had nothing to do with him being brooding. I didn't think he became "more distant" (as the blurb claims) as time when on; I think he was kind of distant all along. He was secretive, flippant, and superficial the whole time. He kept things from the h and got unreasonably angry when she found out things he didn't want her to know. I don't ever remember encountering an H who went so out of his way to appear suspicious. (And really, what WAS his motive for marrying her? The author did not convince me it was love.)

The ending was abrupt and in no way surprising. The book was pretty much a let-down for me.

Like most of Holt’s historical romances, I assume this one was set in the Victorian era but it takes place mostly in Cornwall. Favel Farrington was living with her artist father on the beautiful Isle of Capri when Roc Pendorric from Cornwall came into their studio one day and swept Favel off her feet.

Roc was a charmer from the beginning and soon they were wed, but the day was overshadowed by her father’s drowning death. Once Favel and Roc arrive at the ancestral home of the Pendorrics on the coast of Cornwall, Favel discovers the family legend of the “Bride of Pendorric”, where one who died became a ghost until replaced by another. And the last one, Roc’s mother, Barbarina, died young in a terrible accident. Supposedly she haunts the east wing of the estate.

There are some surprises in this story, one is a truth Favel learns when she befriends an old man living in the neighboring estate, a self-made man who takes a liking to Favel. It’s a truth hidden from her by her new husband.

While Favel is falling in love with Cornwall, accidents begin to happen that threaten her life. She begins to wonder if someone isn’t trying to kill her.

The ending may be a surprise but Holt did her best to string out the great reveal.

Based on memory, I've reread this book several times. I enjoyed the whirlwind romance. The hero who came in and swept the heroine off her feet, marries her and takes her back home to meet his family. That's when things start to get really good. There's a history about the Pendoric family that is rather scary and creepy. Victoria Holt was really good at writing suspense. The heroes almost always were cloaked in mystery. Most of all I enjoyed the relationship between the two main protagonist. This is one of many excellent Victoria Holt novels. Glad to see it digitized even though it is a bit pricey.

I became hooked on Victoria Holt when I was in the sixth grade. That was in the 60's !!!I have read every single book she ever wrote and she remains one of my top five favorites ever. Bride of Pendorric is an excellent, can't put it down read. Holt's extreme description of sights, events and people are so entrancing. The story is fascinating and exciting and she holds her readers fast and passionate. I have this in hard cover from ages ago and I have it on my Kindle from Amazon. Please read it. You'll love the gothic romance, suspense, love, fear, excitement and wallop of an ending of Bride of Pendorric.

I am reading this book right now. I haven't finished it yet. It is ok. But I am amazed at how quickly these women in these books just seem to fall in line and marry some guy they don't really know. I mean what makes a woman marry a guy she doesn't really know? His nice looks? And early in the book it is hinted at that her new husband may have been responsible for the death of her father. I will finish this sort of slow moving story and see if it is any better ~ or gets any better. Compared to Sue Grafton who always puts depth and dimension to her characters this one is sadly lacking.. Kind of flat.. but we will see.. I generally like Victoria Holt, but this book is kind of dark, foreboding, and so far a little flat.. ho hum..

A favorite of my teenage years, this re-read was a bit less gripping. In fact, I found it to be dated and overwrought overall, sad to say. I've grown to enjoy her more serious historical fiction as Jean Plaidy. Yet there continues to be this nostalgic draw to the drama of the gothic mystery I loved so well.
If you enjoy a mystery, especially if you read Rebbeca and loved it. You will like this book. It is the same style. I really enjoyed the book but got frustrated with the heroine a few times. It kept you guessing. I really did enjoy it. I recommend it to mystery lovers. If I had a complaint, it would be that it was not as romantic as I like
