There were six of them - three Katherines, two Annes, and a Jane. One of them was the King's wife for twenty-four years, another for only a year and a half. One died, two were divorced, and two were beheaded. It was a dangerous, uncertain life. After the King's death in 1547, his sixth wife finds a box of old letters - one from each of the first five wives. They are sad, angry, frightened letters. They tell the story of what it was like to be the wife of Henry VIII of England.
Una novela apasionante, hipnótica y plena de misterio, por la autora de La habitación. Irlanda, 1840. En un pequeño pueblo se corre la voz de que una niña de once años, hija de una humilde familia de granjeros, lleva cuatro meses sin comer. Anna O'Donnell es inteligente, devota y muy discreta. En un ambiente extremadamente católico, todos la creen una santa. El caso ha llegado a la prensa, y recibe a diario visitas que dejan a la familia limosnas y regalos. Elizabeth Lib Wright, una joven enfermera inglesa, es contratada por un comité de ciudadanos del pueblo para vigilar a la niña durante dos semanas, con el objeto de otorgar credibilidad al «milagro». Se turnará en esa vigilancia con una monja, la hermana Michael. Lib no se fía de la eficacia de la religiosa, pero es casi imposible controlarla a ella también, además de a la niña y los padres de esta. William Byrne es un periodista al que envían allí para cubrir el caso, y Liz acaba refiriéndole algunas de sus observaciones. Está convencida de que se trata de un fraude, pero resolver el misterio no resultará sencillo. Una novela emotiva, inteligente, apasionada, que conjuga el suspense psicológico con una historia de amor que se enfrenta al mal. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION By the New York Times bestselling author of Room: A small Irish village is mystified by what appears to be a miracle but may actually be murder in this "fine, fact-based, old-school page-turner" (Stephen King). In this masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle -- a girl said to have survived without food for months -- soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life. Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl. Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels--a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
Medieval romances with their magic fountains, brave knights, and beautiful maidens have come to stand for the Middle Ages more generally. This close connection between the medieval and the romance has had consequences for popular conceptions of the Middle Ages, an idealized fantasy of chivalry and hierarchy, and also for our understanding of romances, as always already archaic, part of a half-forgotten past. And yet, romances were one of the most influential and long-lasting innovations of the medieval period. To emphasize their novelty is to see the resources medieval people had for thinking about their contemporary concern and controversies, whether social order, Jewish/ Christian relations, the Crusades, the connectivity of the Mediterranean, women's roles as mothers, and how to write a national past. This volume takes up the challenge to 'think romance', investigating the various ways that romances imagine, reflect, and describe the challenges of the medieval world.
Great Britain is changing, and so is Europe. The aim of this book, therefore, is to reflect upon the processes of (re)creation of art and literature within and against the backdrop of the shifting paradigms of the world as we know it. At a time when the political relations between Great Britain, Europe and the rest of the world are being redefined, this book examines the (de)construction of modern identities through the (de)codification of classical and contemporary mythologies.
