The Popish Midwife

Historischer Roman von Annelisa Christensen

In seventeenth-century London, thirteen years after the plague and twelve years after the Great Fire, the restoration of King Charles II has dulled the memory of Cromwell’s puritan rule, yet fear and suspicion are rife. Religious turmoil is rarely far from tipping the scales into hysteria. Elizabeth Cellier, a bold and outspoken midwife, regularly visits Newgate Prison to distribute alms to victims of religious persecution. There she falls in with the charming Captain Willoughby, a debtor, whom she enlists to gather information about crimes against prisoners, so she might involve herself in petitioning the king in their name.

Annelisa Christensen ist eine englische Autorin, die ein 300 Jahre altes Buch über die englische Hebamme Elizabeth Cellier des 17. Jahrhunderts gekauft hat. Danach war sie so fasziniert, dass sie diesen Roman verfasst hat. „This is a novel that imparts a considerable amount of history. Things I had never heard spoken of before were discussed, in particular the state of the prisoners and their treatment during this time period.“ (Leserin) (29 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 454 Seiten – noch gratis?

Witziger Liebesroman von Hannah Rothschild

The Debt Collector: LIRIUM SciFi von Susan Kaye Quinn
Lirium erfüllt mit seinem dunklen Mantel und den Schaftstiefeln die Rolle des Sensenmannes gut. Er ist einfach für seinen Anteil tätig, zehn Prozent von der Lebensenergie, die er einfängt, bevor er sie an die Hochbegabten weitergibt, Menschen, die die Welt mit ihrer Arbeit und ihrem Leben zu einem besseren Ort machen werden. “Quinn does an amazing job of giving just enough information to keep you wanting more. Every character has a story and as we learn more and more about each of them we appreciate their flaws and perfection.” (Leserin) (90 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 430 Seiten – noch gratis?

Dido’s Crown

Historischer Thriller von Julie K. Rose

Mary Wilson MacPherson has always been adept at putting the past behind her: her father’s death, her sister’s disappearance, and her complicated relationship with childhood friends Tom and Will. But that all changes when, traveling to North Africa on business for her husband, Mary meets a handsome French-Tunisian trader who holds a mysterious package her husband has purchased — a package which has drawn the interest not only of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, but the Nazis as well.

Julie K. Rose ist eine kalifornischen Autorin von historischen Romanen. Ihre Bücher spielen zu jeweils ganz unterschiedlichen Zeiten an unterschiedlichen Orten. „It is rich in complex characters, deftly drawn and involved in complex situations and complex relationships, and is refreshingly free of cliches as well as full of surprises. The Tunisian setting is an unusual one, vividly realized.“ (Leser) (7 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 295 Seiten – noch gratis?

River of Shadows

Krimi von Valerio Varesi

A relentless deluge lashes the Po Valley, and the river itself swells beyond its limits. A barge breaks free of its moorings and drifts erratically downstream; when finally it runs aground its seasoned pilot is nowhere to be found. The following day, an elderly man of the same surname falls from the window of a nearby hospital. Commissario Soneri, scornful of his superiors‘ scepticism, is convinced the two incidents are linked.

Band 1 der Serie. “Commisario Soneri has to dig through layers of Italian history to solve a murder. The Po River rises both literally and symbolically, both hiding and revealing those layers and, ultimately, the murder.” (Rezensent) (32 Rezensionen / 3,7 Sterne), 272 Seiten noch günstig?

The Dark Valley

Krimi von Valerio Varesi

Commissario Soneri returns to his roots for a hard-earned autumn holiday, hoping to spend a few days mushroom picking on the slopes of Montelupo. The isolated village relies on the salame factory founded in the post-war years by Palmiro Rodolfi, and now run by his son, Paride. On arrival, Soneri is greeted by anxious rumours about the factory’s solvency and the younger Rodolfi’s whereabouts.

A Woman Much Missed

Krimi von Valerio Varesi

A few days before Christmas, with Parma gripped by frost and fog, Ghitta Tagliavini, the elderly owner of a guesthouse in the old town centre, is found murdered in her apartment. The case is assigned to Commissario Soneri, but the investigation holds a painful, personal element that sends waves of nostalgia sweeping through him. Tagliavini’s guesthouse is where Soneri met his late wife Ada, and where the young couple spent unforgettable hours in each other’s company. But the present can embitter even the sweetest memories.

Band 4 der Serie. „While nature is often the source of Varesi’s moody ambience, this time it’s the city of Parma that offers a brooding presence throughout the novel. The absence of urban „joy“ gets heavy at times, but this is a work of well-turned prose, with an engrossing story line. This guy can write and deserves his growing following of readers.“ (Leser) (2 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 288 Seiten noch günstig?

The Resurrection of Andrew Finsbury

Paranormaler historischer Thriller von Joseph Massucci
