Beschreibung zu „Island of a Thousand Springs (ENG)“

London, 1732: Nora Reed, the daughter of a merchant, falls hopelessly in love with her father's clerk, Simon. Despite their differing social class, the star-crossed lovers dream of a future on a tropical island - until tragedy strikes, and Nora must face a life without her soulmate. Hopeless, Nora enters a marriage of convenience with Elias Fortnam, a widower and sugar planter in Jamaica. Even without Simon, she is determined to somehow fulfill their tropical fantasy. But life in the Caribbean doesn't turn out as Nora had dreamt. -- Nora is deeply shocked by the way plantation owners treat the slaves and decides to shake things up on her own sugar cane plantation - for the better. Surprisingly, her adult stepson Doug supports her in this endeavor when he arrives from Europe. However, his return also puts things into a state of turmoil - especially Nora's feelings. -- Just as Nora seems to be settling into her role as lady of the house, one harrowing event rips everything from her but her life... A gripping tale of love and hate, trust and betrayal, and a thrilling destiny set against the pristine beaches and swaying palmtrees of the tropics. -- For fans of Kathleen Grissom,THE KITCHEN HOUSE, Alex Haley, ROOTS: THE SAGA OF AN AMERICAN FAMILY, and Sue Monk Kidd, THE INVENTION OF WINGS.

Über Sarah Lark

Sarah Lark, autora super ventas alemana afincada en España, ha seducido a siete millones de lectores en más de veinte países con sus grandes sagas familiares ambientadas en parajes exóticos. Ampliamente imitada, Lark ha sabido crear y consolidar un nuevo género narrativo, el landscape, en que sus heroínas viven unos destinos marcados por la aventura, los viajes, el romanticismo y la historia. Con la Trilogía de la Nube Blanca (En el país de la nube blanca, La canción de los maoríes y El grito de la tierra), se encumbró a la categoría de best seller internacional, en un fenómeno de boca a boca sin precedentes. Le siguen la Saga del Caribe (La isla de las mil fuentes y Las olas del destino), ambientadas en Jamaica, y su siguiente trilogía neozelandesa, la Trilogía del Kauri, integrada por Hacia los mares de la libertad, A la sombra del árbol kauri y la presente novela.
