review The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets Free download ☆ 9 Dade espantosa e petulante ue tragicamente enviuvou muito jovem; o irmão mais novo Inigo actualmente incapaz de se concentrar noutra coisa ue não seja Elvis Presley; um casarão antiuíssimo completamente degradado graves dificuldades financeiras e Harry o sardónico primo da sua melhor amiga Charlotte ue aspira ser mágico e a usa para fazer ciúmes à namorada americana Mas até onde irá esta representaçãoNuma intriga. The first of my theme reads this month This is a story of England in the mid 1950s when rationing was coming to an end Jazz ruled large Elvis was first appearing on the scene though not yet in England but the shadows of war still loomed large Our heroine eighteen year old Penelope Wallace lives in her crumbling old ancestral home Milton Magna with her rather young mother society beauty Talitha and sixteen year old brother Inigo who attends school but whose whole life is music and his guitar Penelope attends classes on literature and art history has a part time job and is preparing to spend some time in Italy the next year and oh yes she is besotted with singer Johnnie Ray At home the family is dealing with money problems having to maintain Milton Magna Penelope lost her father in the war before her and her brother were even old enough to really understand it each in their own way her mother by wanting Penelope to marry money and her brother wanting to make it big in the music world much to her mother s horror since that would inevitably involve him going away to America Penelope and her family are pretty eccentric themselves but her somewhat uneventful life changes when one day at the bus stop she meets Charlotte and through her Charlotte s aunt Clare who s in the midst of writing her memoirs and happens to know Penelope s parents though Penelope doesn t immediately know how and cousin Harry a budding magician determined to win back his love Marina HamiltonThis was my first Eva Rice book and I simply loved it well technically it was my second but the first was Who s Who by Enid Blyton so it doesn t count as a novel Reviewers have compared this one with Nancy Mitford and with I Capture the Castle and they re right the book definitely especially at the beginning has a very Mitford feel about it and also feels a lot like I Capture the Castle the eccentric family crumbling old house but that said it s also its own story I really enjoyed the story and all the characters and especially the craziness and humour Each character is very individual well drawn out eccentric and interesting none of your ordinary people here and there isn t one except may be Marina that one doesn t like or one wouldn t mind knowing I thought Rice captures the 1950 s world and indeed the atmosphere the feel of it really well the world of music particularly which makes perfect sense given her background The tone remains light hearted and humorous throughout but the book also does give one a glimpse of the issues teens of the day then had to face besides being teens that is to come to terms with a life that wasn t in the midst of war I guess the strangest thing about your generation is that you grew up with war as your normality and though the war s over and there s a new found freedom it s shadows and impacts still remain with them and aren t something that can simply be shaken off And Rice manages to do this without losing that light hearted tone Of course I loved all the literary allusions and references from Blyton she of course had to be there to Hardy and Scott Fitzgerald as I usually do And I would be remiss if I didn t mention the illustrations the little illustrations not of characters but things that appear in the book a taxi a teapot and cup weather vane and such there is a human or two but not as such specific characters in the book and these I thought were really cute and great fun as well This was a perfect beginning for my June theme reads one I really enjoyed I definitely want to be reading of her books

We were young and the world revolved around this Delicious Utterly delectable and delightful I adore this book What a beautiful story From the opening page where Penelope and Charlotte meet while waiting for a bus I fell in love and read blissfully onThis is a gentle romp about manners falling in and out of love and growing up Set in 1950s England where the war is slowly being forgotten and rationing has come to end Sunnier times are on the horizon People can start to buy what they want rather than only what they needJohnnie Ray is still making the girls scream but Elvis Presley has just made his first recording The world is changingI wish I could step into the pages to join Penelope Charlotte for afternoon tea at Aunt Clare s place Or cocktails and dinner at The Ritz Or having tea in a caf with some coolly dressed Teddy BoysThe chapters also have titles Haven t seen that in a long time It adds to the lovely eccentricity of the book The Girl In The Green Coat Five O Clock And Later Drama In The Dining Room et al FabulousRead this when you want to step away from the modern world for a little while

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets Free download ☆ 9 Extravagante cheia de segredos de família e as escondidos vemos como uma nova geração de londrinos se deixa seduzir pela exuberância e a opulência americanas dando origem a uma realidade até então desconhecida a da cultura teenagerCríticas de imprensa«Se Jane Austen fosse viva escreveria livros como este Eva Rice serve uma fatia de literatura tão deliciosa ue nos apetece comê la toda de uma dentada» Cosmopolitan. I loved this book The whole reading experience was self indulgent God knows why I picked it up I liked the look of the cover I think after reading someone else s enthusiastic Goodreads reviewIt is I Capture the Castle Lite Or I Capture the Castle set 20 years later on in a giddy 19541955 England gorging itself on butter and sugar and bacon and pop music after 15 years of austerity and rationing The castle in uestion is the wonderful decaying and doomed Great House Milton Magna plundered for military accommodation during the war and never uite recovered In this book it s the teenage narrator s ancestral home Actually it s safe to say that Magna as the narrator fondly refers to it is my favorite character in the book Nothing not the dedication of Inigo Jones nor the years of hard work from those austere painted faces that lined the walls in the drawing room and the hall made me anything other than the most important person ever to have lived at Magna the one who understood and loved the house the most As the precarious heir to a similarly decrepit building I SO UNDERSTAND THIS Out of all possible outcomes my only desire was for some rich American bloke to come along and fall in love with the HOUSE and save its butt Long Gallery That didn t happen but all the human characters ended up happy which really is a much better outcomeAlso like I Capture the Castle it s a book about writing and learning to write In fact absolutely nothing happens in this book up until a dramatic event near the end which ridiculously I didn t see coming but in retrospect is really the only right and proper thing to have happened And I am convinced HARRY DID IT Most of the book is parties and train rides and young people getting ridiculously drunk all disguising some deep and beautiful truths about growing upI can t figure out why this isn t a YA novel But it isn t It should be fifty years ago it would have been But it isn t One would never write a single word if one knew the horrors that lay ahead agreed Charlotte But if you sell copies by the sackload you may well forget the horrors I agreed uickly
