Elizabeth Pewsey is the pen name of author Elizabeth Edmondson who has authored the series Mr. Darcy’s Daughters and the Mountjoy book series. The Mountjoy book series was authored under her pen name and was published by Hodder and Stoughton.

All the books in this series display the unquiet, unholy and mysterious on-goings of a family referred to as the Mountjoys and the imaginary a peculiar circle within the city of Eyot.

The World, The Flesh, and The Bishop

This is the first book in the Mountjoy book series by Elizabeth Pewsey. It takes place in an exceedingly small town of Eyot. Eyot is a remarkably charming town that has lots of history. The local people are not only diverse but also exceedingly interesting. Pewsey introduces the reader to Quinta who is a single mom and has tried so hard to raise the spirit of Phoebe. Quinta has several responsibilities; thus she also tries to make it on her own. Phoebe is exceedingly fantastic and also very inquisitive. She loves to say whatever she is thinking off. Apart from Phoebe and Quinta, the author introduces the reader to Lydia, who is an old school friend to Quinta and tends to come to the local town of Eyot so as to stay with her grandparent. This installment has a great cast of characters, but the great thing about these characters is that they can stand on their own; thus it is not easy to mix them up.

This installment is exceedingly entertaining since it is full of drama, humor, and whimsy. You will definitely enjoy this installment from the very first page to the last. The storyline is quite engaging, and it lays emphasis on Quinta and Lydia together with the farcical people who surround them. Lydia is in the process of understanding what she is supposed to do with her life without causing any damage at all.

Unholy Harmonies

Just like a fine wine, Unholy Harmonies is exceedingly addictive. Unholy Harmonies is the third book in the Mountjoy book series by Elizabeth Pewsey. It not only features ghosts but it also has aristocrats, eccentrics, and musicians. The mystery has been brewing in the hills of Eyotshire, an exceedingly small town. As the book begins, the author takes the reader to Trollope and Wodehouse where pure wickedness lies in wait underneath the upper class’s self-confidence. Other places discussed in the books include the manor house, village church, and country inn. From time to time, the author takes the reader into another world. She not only diverts the story from time to time but she also uses an awesome cast of character to cement the story. One of the characters that the author introduces include Mountjoy’s, a family that has resided in the Mountjoy castle for so many years.

Apart from the Mountjoy, the author introduces the reader to one, Justinia, an exceedingly beautiful and talented musician who is married to Digby.

Brotherly Love

Just like the previous installments, this installment is about the Mountjoys, a family that has numerous cousins. Despite that this story was written in the 1990’s it still carries an old lacuna. Since the city of Eyot, has an exceedingly strong musical background, the city loves to host numerous musical festivities. Furthermore, music plays a major supporting role in the book, up to the extent that it almost became a character on its own. In this book, the author introduces Sylvester, who has also been featured in all the other books in this series. Sylvester is a renowned cellist.

Another character is Quinta, who is an underage unmarried mother, who is the main character in the novel, Divine Comedy. Quinta forges an improbable career as a lutenier.

Mimi’s business is threatened by her husband, Edmund is desperately determined to finish complete his book about the Templars. On the other hand, Mimi’s mother has refused to return home since she is escaping her three unmarried sons. Since their mother is not around, the three son’s place stringent rules on their sister who resides in Eyot. Exasperated by the brothers, Edmond and Mimi decide to run away to France. However, upon arriving in France, a woman whom Edmund used to know way back appears. Is Mimi going to finally, conquer the mistrust she has concerning Edmund? Is Mimi going to deal with her brothers?
