Synopsis

50917477It’s February 1942 and the American’s have finally joined Britain and its allies. Meanwhile, twenty-three-year-old Francesca Fabrino, like thousands of other women, is doing her bit for the war effort in a factory in East London. But her thoughts are constantly occupied by her unrequited love for Charlie Brogan, who has recently married a woman of questionable reputation, before being shipped out to North Africa with the Eighth Army.

When Francesca starts a new job as an Italian translator for the BBC Overseas Department, she meets handsome Count Leonardo D’Angelo. Just as Francesca has begun to put her hopeless love for Charlie to one side and embrace the affections of this charming and impressive man, Charlie returns from the front, his marriage in ruins and his heart burning for Francesca at last. Could she, a good Catholic girl, countenance an illicit affair with the man she has always longed for? Or should she choose a different, less dangerous path?

About the Author

I was born into a large, East End family and grew up in the overcrowded streets clustered around the Tower of London. I still live in East London, just five miles from where I was born. I feel that it is that my background that gives my historical East London stories their distinctive authenticity.

I first fell in love with history at school when I read Anya Seton’s book Katherine. Since then I have read everything I can about English history but I am particularly fascinated by the 18th and 19th century and my books are set in this period. I just love my native city and the East End in particular which is why I write stories to bring that vibrant area of London alive.

I am also passionate about historical accuracy and I enjoy researching the details almost as much as weaving the story. If one of my characters walks down a street you can be assured that that street actually existed. Take a look at Jean’s East End and see the actual location where my characters played out their stories.

Happy Release day!!


Synopsis

FINAL cover with pubA fierce Highland warrior, loyal to his king. His beautiful English captive. He has promised her protection, but will he have to risk his own life to do so?

John Sinclair, faithful warrior for Robert the Bruce, makes a fateful wager with his brother: whoever wins Aislynn’s affections will wed her. Only Aislynn de Valence, niece to the English King, is a captive of the Bruce, sent to the Highlands as a prisoner and for her own protection. The last thing she wants it to wed her enemy.

To win the wager and the woman, John woos Aislynn with his whole heart.
But the Highlands are unstable, clan fighting against clan. And no one in the Highlands is ready to welcome an Englishwoman into their midst.

Promo Post: “Song of the Nightingale” by Marilyn Pemberton

Hello Friends!

I hope you are all doing well this lovely Saturday. It is a very special day for so many reasons. Besides de announcement I will be making, and the review, I bring you now a promo post.

Song of the Nightingale“, written by Marilyn Pemberton, is a Historical Fiction novel published on December 14th 2019 by The Conrad Press.


Synopsis

Song of the Nightingale - Front coverPhilippe, the narrator of this tale, is secretary to Count De Lorenzo, and lover to the Count’s young wife. He is tasked with buying young boys from poor villagers, having them castrated and taking them to Florence to be taught to sing as castrati. The parents are told that their sons are especially blessed with their wonderful voices and they do not object to the boys making a physical sacrifice in order to thank and praise the Lord; nor to the bag of gold they are given in exchange.

The boys are innocents, victims of circumstances beyond their control. Surely they can have nothing to do with a barber’s mysterious death, or the suicide of an abusive Jesuit priest?

This is a tale of passion, revenge, guilt, regret, loss and redemption.

Promo Post: “Blue Skies Over Berlin”

Hello Friends!

I hope you are all doing well. I have been busy doing some arts and crafts this morning. I’m painting some door signs as a gift for two kids, my mom’s friend’s children, since their birthday is coming up.

But I had to come her and tell you guys about a book. So get ready…

Blue Skies Over Berlin“, written by John Steinberg, is a Mystery Historical novel.

Blue Skies Over Berlin


Synopsis

Blue Skies Over Berlin CoverA young German woman, thinking she can escape her memories of wartime Berlin, moves to London in 1954 under her new name of Charlotte Brown. The offer of a prestigious job at the National Gallery leads her to believe that she can establish a new life in a city itself emerging from the ruins of war.

With her new identity, Charlotte hopes she has left Eva Schlessinger far behind . . . but when her job brings her into contact with a ruthless set of art dealers with dubious wartime connections, she fears they can see behind her facade. Priceless masterpieces start appearing at auction, stolen from murdered Jewish families by the Nazis, and she herself is implicated. At this point, Charlotte makes a solemn promise – one that will take her a lifetime to fulfil.

Blue Skies Over Berlin is a novel about secrets and guilt in an uncertain time, balanced by friendship and enduring love – and ultimately the need to make amends for just standing by.

Author Bio

johnsteinberg_bwBorn and raised in North London in 1952, John still lives in the city with his wife and three children. Privately educated, John left school after ‘A’ levels and completed a business diploma in what is now the University of Westminster, before entering banking.

He started training as an accountant but did not complete the course, choosing a position in his family’s furniture manufacturing business instead. John started his own mergers and acquisitions business in 1987, which he ran for almost 20 years before quitting to become a full time writer in 2007.

John has co-written and produced comedies for the stage and has created a series of books for children. “Previously, I had only been interested in comedy and finally started to write down the things I said or thought of. That led me to co-write and produce a play, In the Balance, and then W for Banker – which appeared at the New End Theatre, Hampstead. It was then I decided to quit the world of business in favour of writing full-time, and move toward more serious subjects. My first novel has taken two years to write and is the first in a series of books I am calling the ‘Steinberg Stories’.”

Livraria Good Books

Olá, meus queridos amigos!

[Side Note: For my Englsih speakers friends, this post will be in Portuguese, I’m sorry, but since it’s about a Portuguese bookstore it only made sense to write it in that language.]

Espero que a vossa semana esteja a correr bem, e que o fim de semana venha com momentos para relaxar. E para quem irá estar a trabalhar este fim de semana, muita força.

Como podem ver pelo título deste post, estou aqui para vos falar de uma livraria fantástica que espero poder visitar em breve.

A Livraria Good Books foi criada por uma dupla espetacular, mãe e filha, Ana Paula Ivo e Ana Teresa Barreiros. É uma Livraria de livros usados e de autores/editoras independentes, localizada em Sintra.

A livraria está aberta de sexta-feira a domingo, das 10h às 17h, contudo também poderão comprar os livros online.

Social Media Links: Website | Instagram | Facebook | Youtube

Fica igualmente aqui a nota que existe um clube do livro, Clube Good Books. E no período de Fevereiro e Março os participantes (qualquer pessoa que se queira juntar) irá ler o livro “Os Contos Impossíveis“, escrito por Tiago Moita.


Sinopse:

O que tem em comum um pintor aluado, um quadro vazio, um transatlântico em apuros, uma estátua viva e o sexo dos anjos com uma lágrima numa sala? Apenas o facto de fazerem parte de uma colectânea de dez contos, escritos por Tiago Moita, onde o autor cruza a ironia com o absurdo, o real com o transcendente, o surreal com o assombro e o imprevisto com o impossível, como se todos eles fizessem parte de um todo chamado Vida e revelassem os aspectos mais belos e negros da Arte, do Universo e da condição humana.


Se não conhecem esta livraria, aconselho a passarem pelo website ou Instagram e vasculharem o que elas tem. Muitos livros que conheço, e outros que fiquei a conhecer, inclusive o autor e o livro para a leitura de Fevereiro/Março do clube Good Books.

Se conhecem esta livraria e já compraram livros através do site ou até mesmo na loja fisica, deixem um comentário e digam qual foi o livro.
