I read this book over 30 years ago and still remember certain parts of it. If you liked Penmarric you'll love Cashelmara.

Edward de Salis, an English nobleman with vast landholdings in Ireland and England travels to America and visits the Marriot family, distant relations in New York City. De Salis, a man in his fifties, has been a widower for eight years and has a young son, Patrick, and three older daughters, all married or living away from home. He returns to England with plans to marry seventeen year-old Marguerite Marriot, to his family's great consternation. Marguerite and Edward are married at the family estate, Cashelmara.

Cashelmara and the situation in Ireland begin to weigh heavily on the family with unexpected results
