Yet, just as their relationship begins to grow, Rebecca uncovers a family secret that threatens to destroy her newfound love. And I think Lennox is one of those writers who will continue topping herself. Other excellent writers to read after this would be: Margaret Mayhew, William Jarvis, Anne DeCourcy, Helen Forrester, Duncan Barrett, Iris Jones Simantel, Pamela Winfield, Eileen Townsend, Erik Larson, Laurie Graham, Melynda Jarrett, and Soraya Lane. Rebecca Bennett, thirty-one, financially strapped and reeling from a disastrous love affair, has just taken on the biggest project of her career: writing the biography of Dame Tilda Franklin, considered England's angel to needy children. Aber gehörte ja zum Plot und kann man leider auch nicht einfach weglassen. Yet, just as their relationship begins to grow, Rebecca uncovers a family secret that threatens to destroy her newfound love. Wer episch überbordende Familiensagas vom Stil Margaret Mitchells oder landschaftlich apart drapierte Liebes- und Leidensidyllen in der Manier Rosamunde Pilchers mag, wird von Lennox' neuem, mit etwas Kriminalistik und Zeitgeschichte durchwirkten Roman vortrefflich bedient.

The writing avoids cliches, builds character in a pretty refreshing way, and will cause your emotions to take quite a hike. А саме: це сімейна сага з паралельними історіями різних героїв, де таємниці минулого тісно переплітаються з реальністю. Vor allem ihr sechster Roman Das Winterhaus über das unterschiedliche Beziehungsschicksal dreier Jugendfreundinnen zwischen den Weltkriegen hielt sich in England lange Zeit auf den Bestsellerlisten. Spanning the twentieth century, Some Old Lover's Ghost is a haunting and incredibly poignant love story from acclaimed author Judith Lennox. I'm currently on page 258 of this book and although it's enjoyable I'm irrationally annoyed by the use of dike instead of dyke. It was Tilda's misfortune to fall in love with handsome, devil-may-care Daragh Canavan, and to be betrayed by him.

As Rebecca delves deeper into Tilda's life, and as the events of the past send ghostly echoes to the present, parallels with her own experience begin to emerge. Lennox is a gifted story teller- her characters are never cardboard and her novels encompass social issues in England's past such as suffrage and World Wars. Combining the eloquence and compassion of great English storytellers such as Rosamunde Pilcher and Joanna Trollope with a keen sense for how we reconcile the present by connecting to our past, Judith Lennox comes to America with this international bestseller. And as she is drawn into a family history of loves and tragedies almost too painful to write about, her involvement with the family becomes more overwhelming than she could ever have imagined. В кінцевому результаті, ти сам стаєш частиною розказаних історій.

Ein wenig würde man sich wünschen, auch Lennox hätte das beherzigt und manches Klischee vermieden. Можливо, цьому роману не вистачає витонченості, закінченості чи глибини, але кілька факторів таки заставили мене читати його з великим задоволенням! Mining the past of this distinguished child welfare activist, Rebecca is amazed to discover a history riddled with the passion and pain of mysterious kin and unpredictable love. Разом з Тільдою намагаєшся повернути справжнє кохання її життя, а з Ребеккою докопатися до істини. Rebecca, bruised from an unhappy love affair, is flattered to be asked to write the life story of distinguished Dame Tilda Franklin. It's definitely dykes in Cambs, not dikes Every time I read the word it makes me want to throw the book across the room! I bought one of Judith Lennox's novels at a library sale as gnerational novels are often a good escape. Aus London reist sie nach Oxfortshire ins idyllische Landhaus der alten Dame, um deren Werdegang von der Geburt in einem Armenhaus über ihre enttäuschte Liebe zu dem schwächlichen Abenteurer Daragh Canavan bis hin zu ihrer aufopfernden Karriere im Dienst bedürftiger Waisenkinder zu beschreiben. A mysterious caller accuses Tilda of murdering Daragh years ago, so Rebecca plunders the family history, chasing ghosts and rumors in hopes of revealing the truth.

Readers may sympathize with Tilda's mother, whose life was ruined in 1914 by bearing a child out of wedlock, but will have a harder time understanding modern-day Rebecca, an emotional basket case who seems to make a habit of getting pregnant at the outset of her romances, and seems powerless in directing her life, despite her description as a worldly, enterprising career woman. The characters are well formed, although there seems to be much jumping to conclusions on many of their parts, that only leads to more doubt and confusion in their relationships. Set against the stark beauty of the Fen country and peopled with memorable characters, Some Old Lover's Ghost is an addictive novel of tragedy, recovery, healing, and love that will raise you up and touch your heart. Believable characters and a tale rife with shocking scandals make for a chilling mystery, though at times the plot whips through historical eras and switches narrative voices with little warning. The author is writing about my home county of Cambridgeshire with places I regularly see but insists on using the American term of dike. Його намагання вписатися в навколишній світ і спроба виразити свою любов, відновлюючи покинутий сад, відгукнулися в моєму серці. Разом з Тільдою намагаєшся повернути справжнє кохання її життя, а з Ребеккою докопатися до істини.

At the same time, Rebecca's story is also one of pain and hurt, as she continues to find her way as a young writer. Well worth my time and money. Her first love, Daragh Canavan, marries de Paveley's legitimate daughter, but never stops loving Tilda, though Tilda weds journalist Max Franklin and has a family of her own. And as she is drawn into a family history of loves and tragedies almost too painful to write about, her involvement with the family becomes more overwhelming than she could ever have imagined. Decades later, as Rebecca is researching Tilda's story, a body is discovered, believed to be Daragh's. В кінцевому результаті, ти сам стаєш частиною розказаних історій.
