Dica de Leitura por Tati


Olá queridos!

Como prometido, cá estou eu para fazer mais uma indicação de leitura (romântica). Hoje vamos com mais um retellings. Hum... isso mesmo, vocês perceberam que ADORO uma releitura, ainda mais quanto ela é bem feita.

Hoje vamos com a linda e inspiradora história de amor de Persuasão da amada Jane Austen.

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

(Sumário by Goodreads)

It's been several generations since a genetic experiment gone wrong caused the Reduction, decimating humanity and giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.

Elliot North has always known her place in this world. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family's estate over love. Since then the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress, and Elliot's estate is foundering, forcing her to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth--an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliot wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she let him go.

But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret--one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she's faced with a choice: cling to what she's been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she's ever loved, even if she's lost him forever.

Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion, For Darkness Shows the Stars is a breathtaking romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.

UAU!!! Que a história é sofrida e linda todo mundo já sabe, mas a trauma criada por Diana... UAU! UAU! Ao longo da história eu sentia a angústia e as dores de Elliot causadas pela separação e tratamento rude do seu amor perdido, o Capitão Wentforth.

Confesso que ainda não li o livro da Jane, o original, vi apenas o filme produzido pela BBC, mas a história é bem parecida, apenas com outro plano de fundo.

Este livro é lindo, como só poderia ser algo inspirado em Jane Austen. Ele vale cada minuto de leitura gasto.
Para mim valeu 5 estrelas no Goodreads.
