A Vida Sem Ti - Life Without You (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 25, 2008 11:43AM
Description: Ana is 27, has a long history of boyfriends and no desire to get married and have a baby. But when she meets Richard, a man twenty one years older than her, divorced and the father of two small children, she packs her bags without thinking twice and moves to London, certain that she's found the love of her life. She leaves behind a job at the University, a family who loves her, a twin brother who needs her and, above all, her independence. When she arrives in England, she discovers that life as an immigrant is not the adventure she expected and that playing the mother of other people's children is not an easy game. A tragedy puts an end to her small daily dramas and shows that we should never take life for granted...
Cuba Libre (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 25, 2008 11:40AM
Description: 1994. A trip to Cuba in the summer of the rafters. While Clara Camacho, aged 18, sunbathes in the luxury of a 5-star hotel in Varadero, Cuban families throw themselves off the famous Malecón on makeshift rafts headed for Florida. On a dark humid night, a beautiful hotel dancer, a mulatta girl with shorn hair, offers her a flower by the swimming pool; an armed guard watches her, as she writes down her phone number on a paper napkin. But the name she scribbles is her stage name, and months later, when Clara tries to call her, nobody knows Guerlen, the girl named after a French perfume. 1998. Two months before she is due to marry her high-school sweetheart, the bride meets a wordly man who lives in Brussels and has a flair for silk ties and a million-dollar suits. Clara was raised on a small island of stern and devout people, where women do not leave their grooms stranded at the altar, for fear of scandal. But on the eve of her wedding day, she is having doubts. 2004. Far from her island home, solidly anchored in Lisbon, Clara is still haunted by the image of the Cuban girl in a summer dress, whispering by the moonlit pool in an island of informers, will you come back for me one day? An unexpected trip to Paris brings her the answers she has been silently looking for... Ten years in the life of a woman in search of her place in the world and her true desires.
