    About "Jude Deveraux"

    1. Jude Deveraux

      Jude Gilliam was born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky She has a large extended family and is the elder sister of four brothers She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art In 1967, Jude married and took her husband s surname of White, but four years later they divorced For years, she worked as 5th grade teacher.She began writing in 1976, and published her first book, The Enchanted Land 1977 under the name Jude Deveraux Following the publication of her first novel, she resigned her teaching position Now, she is the author of 31 New York Times bestsellers Jude won readers hearts with the epic Velvet series, which revolves around the lives of the Montgomery family s irresistible men Jude s early books are set largely in 15th and 16th century England in them her fierce, impassioned protagonists find themselves in the midst of blood feuds and wars Her heroines are equally scrappy medieval Scarlett O Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over They re fighters, certainly, but they re also beauties who are preoccupied with survival and family preservation Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results Her James River trilogy River Lady, Lost Lady, and Counterfeit Lady is set mostly in post Revolution America the popular, softer edged Twin of Fire Twin of Ice moves to 19th century Colorado and introduces another hunky man clan, the Taggerts.Deveraux manages to evoke a strong and convincing atmosphere for each of her books, but her dialogue and characters are as familiar as a modern day soap opera s Historicals seem to be all I m capable of, Jude once said in an interview, referring to a now out of print attempt at contemporary fiction, 1982 s Casa Grande I don t want to write family sagas or occult books, and I have no intention of again trying to ruin the contemporary market Still, Jude did later attempt modern day romances, such as the lighthearted High Tide her first murder caper , the contemporary female friendship story The Summerhouse, and the time traveling Knight in Shining Armor In fact, with 2002 s The Mulberry Tree, Deveraux seems to be getting comfortable setting stories in the present, which is a good thing, since the fans she won with her historical books are eager to follow her into the future.Jude married Claude Montassir, with whom she had a son, Sam Alexander Montassir, in 1997 They eventually divorced On Oct 6th, 2005, Sam died at the age of eight in a motorcycle accident Jude has lived in several countries and all over the United States She currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an additional home in the medieval city of Badolato, Italy.

    1. I like Jude Deveraux and there are times when I LOVE Jude Deveraux. This though was not one of those times. I am not a book critic and I have never tried to be. I love to praise other people's work so I will start there. I liked the predesessor to Return to Summerhouse. I was fully statisfied by that book and I was so fond and attatched to those characters that when the book ended I could finally breathe again. This book however I did not have a firm grasp on the character nor could I actually f [...]


    2. Have you ever wondered what kind of life you would be living if you had made a different choice? Would you be happier? Does the decisions you make effect those around you? What would you do if you had the chance to go back and change some choices you have made in your past? In Return to the Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux, we get to see what could happen if we could change our lives, knowing what we know now.Amy is going through the motions of her life, and not doing a good job of it. With her pict [...]



    3. This book emphasizes the fiction in historical fiction. The three main characters (Amy, Faith and Zoe) travel back in time and space to eighteenth century England. (There is no real explanation of how Madame Zoya was able to send them back). In England, Amy meets Lord Hawthorne, an ancestor of her husband and the author, Nathaniel Hawthorne. This part really irked me because I don't think Deveraux did any research about the "Hawthorne" family. If you are going to reference a real family, shouldn [...]


    4. O călătorie în timp, șansa unică de a putea schimba destinul și puțină magie nu strică uneori nimănui, atunci când lupți pentru ceva ce îți dorești. Trei femei care sunt nevoite să se înfrunte pe ele înseși, pentru a-și continua viața: împăcate cu ele, făcând ceea ce le place și, mai ales, fericite, datorită alegerilor pe care le-au luat cândva.Recenzie: bookysme.wordpress/2017/0


    5. A light read incorporating themes of romance, time travel, and the power of female friendship. I was a huge fan of the first book of the series, and although the second does not quite live up to the first, it was still an enjoyable read.


    6. If you are in need of an escape and in need to experience a world where rewriting the past is possible, then read this book. Jude Deveraux provides the reader yet again with the fantastic concept of taking back regrets. In Return to Summerhouse, three women meet yet again to the small town in Maine in Jeanne's Summerhouse. First, they are very reluctant and even despise the idea they may be considered part of "Jeanne's crazies." But when the ice is broken and they tell the reasons why they are t [...]


    7. I'm so torn with this book! I did actually love it. I loved the first book, 5 stars hands down. This one has so much to love, but I was so disappointed that we really didn't get to see much of Zoe and Faith's past changes; that was what I had loved so much about the first one, that it showed each woman's issues as well as their changes (or not) to their current lives. I definitely enjoyed the longer span of Amy's past and the growth in all the characters because of it, but it would have been 5 s [...]


    8. I started reading this book yesterday and stayed up a little beyond my norm last night to complete it. It was a very nice story and a wonderful escape for a few hours. It wasn't predictable to the usual extent books like this are, though I still like them as well. That was probably one reason I stayed up to finish it, I needed to put my curiosity to bed! lol! I recommend this book and this author!


    9. 2.5 not 3 - I did not like this book as much as i liked the first in the series - SummerhouseMainly because Amy's story was pretty weird - Faith and Zoe were good reads but the bulk of the story was about Amy.




    10. Yet another great book club accidental find. I did not expect this book to take such a supernatural type turn, but that made it all the more enjoyable!


    11. Not as good as the first in this series, in my opinion. I had to make myself finish it, after I had reached my 100 page rule.


    12. We all know the old saying " If I knew then what i know now I would have chosen Path B instead of path A". What we dont relize though is if we would have chosen that different path we wouldnt have the things or people that we have in our lives now.This story is about three women that are sent to a summerhouse in Maine to work out their issues. Each one went through a tragedy in their life that is causing them to act out still today. Each of these women get a chance to go back in time for three w [...]


    13. Jude Deveraux, you have a new fan!Time travel, a little magic, twists and turns now and then use your own words, a whopping good story!Loved both Summerhouse books!


    14. SummerhouseIt was as entertaining as the first one was. I enjoyed the moment spent reading the book. You won't be disappointed


    15. This is the sequel of the first book. But the set of characters are completely different except for the location where the magical stuff will happen. I like this better than the first book. The book was not confusing and it is written very well in a way that the readers will enjoy and understand from the beginning until the end. I can barely put the book down. I get excited and what will going to happen.Have you ever wondered what life could you possibly have if you took a different path and fol [...]


    16. I randomly picked this up at a local lending library. I was in the mood for something light that could be read on the beach. I ended up liking this more than I thought I would. The main character is a woman named Amy that has lived the "perfect" life, but after suffering a miscarriage is unable to escape her depression. Her husband sends her to a house run by a therapist to recover. This is where the magic and time travel come into play. She goes back to the 1700's to try and change history and [...]


    17. If you already read the first book in this series, the second one is a little different in that the characters do not already know each other when they all arrive. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this difference, but I ended up enjoying it quite a bit. Amy, Faith and Zoe are complete strangers when they each arrive and in the beginning of the book, I found myself thinking these women would have a hard time bonding or relating to one another.Each woman carries a large amount of grief, pain [...]


    18. This was as amazing as Summerhouse with a twist and more possibilities that I hadn't imagined. A delightful Sunday read for me, thanks Jude!Right from the start, I was hooked on the characters. Loved how realistic they were and found myself lost in their world. When they made connection to the possibility of visiting the past for three weeks it got even more interesting and wasn't at all like the first one.Pleasantly surprised with how this story unfolded is an understatement for me because I fo [...]


    19. I feel that this book is better than the original in the series. The characters are more likeable. Unlike the self pity in the first book these three women react to the misery in their lives with understandable anger and confusion. The multiple sub-plots are easier to follow and less chaotic than they were in the first book. It's easier to follow through from each character's multiple lives from beginning to end. What I admire most in this book is that Jude Deveraux has intertwined the women's f [...]


    20. Slightly overdone, still quite likeable.I was so impressed by The Summerhouse that as soon as I discovered there was a 'Part II' also, I decided I just had to read it!Return to Summerhouse is not exactly a sequel. It is a completely different story of 3 other young women, who get a chance to go back in their past. The difference is that this time, there is not just "time-travel" but also "past birth"! I have only one problem with this book. The OBE (Out of Body Experience) by one of the women du [...]


    21. Okay, so I admit, I'm a sucker for time travel stories. Love them. Can't get enough of them. There is so much "scope for the imagination" (to quote Anne of Green Gables) in time travel.In Return to Summerhouse, Amy is more or less coerced into going to Maine to stay with two other women--total strangers--as a form of therapy to help her deal with her recent miscarriage. The two women, Faith and Zoe, come to the summerhouse with their own traumas to heal. Where the story really gets good is when [...]


    22. Amy has lived the life script she set as a child. Everything has gone perfectly until she miscarries her daughter. Amy slips into a deep depression. Her family emotionally blackmail her into taking a vacation at a summerhouse in Maine with 2 strangers who are also depressed. Faith's husband has died. She is grieving for her husband but her deeper grief is for her boyfriend of her teen years who suddenly abandoned her on the night she returned from college. Zoe is grieving because a car accident [...]


    23. This is an undemanding read and if you switch off the logical, rational section of your brain it is quite enjoyable .Three women are sent to a summerhouse in Maine by their therapist. As they get to know each other and confront traumatic and unhappy events from their past they find the mysterious Madame Zoya who has the ability to send each of them back into the past for three weeks in order to change things in their present lives.This is where you have to switch your brain off, as there is no e [...]


    24. I liked the concept of this book. Three women who have each recently experienced a tragic event come together in the summer home of a therapist where they learn to share and help each other cope with their trauma. I knew this book was going to have a paranormal element, which I normally like, but I would have been happy to just read about the relationship between the women. While the paranormal element allows the women to go back in time to change events in the past to alter the present, so much [...]


    25. I picked up this book because the author's A Knight in Shining Armor, another tale of time travel is on my top 5 list of favorite historical romance novels. Once again Jude Deveraux takes her characters back in time, in Return to Summerhouse, she takes 3 of her heroines back in time. Each woman is allowed to travel back to the time of their choice for 3 weeks and possibly alter their destinies. I enjoyed the characters and I enjoyed their stories and the ending had me staying up late to find out [...]


    26. Three patients of Jeanne's are asked to spend one week at her house in Maine to help each other get over the traumas each has endured. Amy, Zoe and Faith are very unalike. Like the orginal book, Summerhouse, the ladies discover Madame Zoya's shop and select time travel with the option of being able to change the destiny of their lives.Early in the book, Faith was telling her story and it really captured my interest, but Deveraux chose Amy's story to highlight and the bulk of the book was spent o [...]


    27. Okay, I admit that I love this kind of "beach Book" reading. If you haven't read The Summerhouse, you may want to start there. However, this is also a good stand alone book. The premise is that Madame Zoya can send people back to a time in their life when they made a critical choice and their life's pattern was changed and set. Three women: Amy, Faith and Zoe, have all been sent to Summerhouse by their psychiatrist because they have each have had a major tragedy in their life and the psychiatris [...]
