Novos na Estante


Hoje trago-vos os livros que comprei e as book stores que visitei durante as minhas férias em Fort Lauderdale, na Flórida. Bem, para começar, conheci um outro mundo no que toca à compra de livros usados!! Em Portugal, já estava muito habituada a comprar livros em segunda mão no OLX e nos grupos do Facebook, mas nunca tão baratos como encontrei lá nas lojas de livros usados.

A primeira loja de livros que me levaram a visitar foi, como não podia deixar de ser, o Barnes & Nobles. No entanto, nesta visita só comprei um livro, o The first book of Calamity Leek de Paula Lichtarowicz, um livro que aconselho a todos como referi na review publicada anteriormente.

Ficção histórica, From the Author, Mistério, Review

In Farleigh Field by Rhys Bowen

Plot summary:
World War II comes to Farleigh Place, the ancestral home of Lord Westerham and his five daughters, when a soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death on the estate. After his uniform and possessions raise suspicions, MI5 operative and family friend Ben Cresswell is covertly tasked with determining if the man is a German spy. The assignment also offers Ben the chance to be near Lord Westerham’s middle daughter, Pamela, whom he furtively loves. But Pamela has her own secret: she has taken a job at Bletchley Park, the British code-breaking facility. As Ben follows a trail of spies and traitors, which may include another member of Pamela’s family, he discovers that some within the realm have an appalling, history-altering agenda. Can he, with Pamela’s help, stop them before England falls? Inspired by the events and people of World War II, writer Rhys Bowen crafts a sweeping and riveting saga of class, family, love, and betrayal.

First of all, I love historical fiction and when this is mixed with mystery… well, I am in heaven!

And for those who love Downton Abbey, this is the book to read.

This is a well-constructed story. We follow the different characters in different places in each chapter and all of them was so highly connected… As we follow the countryside, Farleigh Place, during World War II, we also follow what happens in the city, London.
