I first saw Roc Pendorric when I came up from the beach one morning to find him sitting in the studio with my father; in his hands he held a terra-cotta statue for which I had been the original, a slim child of about seven.
I first saw Roc Pendorric when I came up from the beach one morning to find him sitting in the studio with my father; in his hands he held a terra-cotta statue for which I had been the original, a slim child of about seven. I remembered when my father had made it more than eleven years before; he had always said it was not for sale. The blinds had not yet been drawn and the two men made a striking contrast sitting there in the strong sunlight: my father so fair, the stranger so dark
It’s Mrs. Pendorric they want to see, for she’s a far more important person than his lordship’s granddaughter. Polhorgan was not built in the same mould as Pendorric. This was one large house whereas ours at Pendorric was like four smaller ones.
It’s Mrs. Nine days’ wonder, darling, Roc assured me. You know there are a lot of skeletons locked away in cupboards in these parts. At Polhorgan there was an immense hall which was to serve as the ballroom, and Dawson and his wife had uncovered the furniture so that I could see it in all its glory.
I read it in the guide book. It means matrimony because they married here. Then we’d better give it another reason for its importance. It’s the spot where Petroc Pendorric asked Favel Farington to marry him and where she said. There seem to be two opinions then. He turned to me and in that moment I was certain he loved me as passionately as I loved him. There was no need for me to answer.
She is the much anticipated Bride of Pendorric, a name that amuses and flatters her. The castle is beautiful in. . The castle is beautiful in its way, but the atmosphere is foreboding. Roc's twin nieces begin watching her carefully; even the stones in the courtyard seem to have eyes. On the walls hang portraits of two other Brides of Pendorric-one of them Roc's mother-who died both young and tragically. Favel's fear increases as Roc seems to be growing more and more distant

Chapter I. I often marvelled after I went to Pendorric that one’s existence could change so swiftly, so devastatingly. I had heard life compared with a kaleidoscope and this is how it appeared to me, for there was the pleasant scene full of peace and contentment when the pattern began to change, first here, then there, until the picture which confronted me was no longer calm and peaceful but filled with menace
The Bride of Pendorric is a reread for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed my new endeavor. The book did not disappoint; many gothic elements are well presented.
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. So I'm cutting her some slack. The Bride of Pendorric is a reread for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed my new endeavor.
From the day Favel came to Pendorric as the bride of Roc Pendorric she was drawn more and more under the spell of the place.
Author: Виктория Холт. From the day Favel came to Pendorric as the bride of Roc Pendorric she was drawn more and more under the spell of the place. For hundreds of years the house had stood there on the Cornish cliffs, towering above’ the sea, noble and arrogant as if defying sea and weather and any who came against it. But more forbidding to Favel than the house itself was the legend that hung about it of the curse of the Brides of Pendorric.
