The Queen of Storytellers is back - with a triumphant tale of one woman's struggle over adversity. In 1786 a fisherman's daughter from Cornwall called Mary Broad was sentenced to be hung for theft.

**4,5 estrelas**

Baseado em factos verídicos este é para mim o melhor livro da escritora. Talvez precisamente por ser um romance histórico tão recheado de aventuras e peripécias que nos cativam logo à partida.

Retrata a força e determinação no seu expoente máximo de uma Mulher que para sobreviver à crueldade daqueles tempos (finais do séc. XVIII) se supera e se destaca dos demais.
Intenso de dramatismo, miséria, de atos de altruísmo inacreditáveis, de amor, de coragem. É também interessante a via

Τελικά αυτό το βιβλίο είναι η βιογραφία της Mary Bryant.
Μιας 18χρονης από το Φόιλ της Κορνουάλης που δικάστηκε και καταδικάστηκε σε απαγχονισμό το 1787 για κλοπή (έκλεψε ένα πακέτο με κοσμήματα και μερικά νομίσματα) στο Πλίμουθ. Τελικά όμως η ποινή της άλλαξε και αποφασίστηκε να εκτοπιστεί στην Νήσο της Νέας Ουαλίας (σήμερα Αυστραλία) για 7 χρόνια.
Αυτό το κορίτσι που τότε ήταν γεμάτο ενέργεια και όνειρα να ζήσει την ζωή της όπως ήθελε αυτή και όχι όπως ήθελε η κοινωνία, έζησε στις χειρότερες συ

Think this is one of the most powerful books I have ever read! I love all of Lesley's books, they are emotional, intriguing, passionate and full of suspense. This one in particular brought tears to my eyes and I could not put it down at all, it has stayed with me for years and I plan to read it again, something I never do. I passed it on to friend who also thought it was beyond excellent! I can't recommend this book if you are into powerful suspenseful family sagas!

Este livro deve ser o que tem a capa e o título mais errados. Porque esta capa e este título não tem nada a ver com a história que povoam aquelas páginas. Não foi só por isso que lhe atribui duas estrelas, mas contribuiu porque no fundo não era isto que estava à espera. Estava à espera de um romance daqueles melosos, com segredos à mistura e muito drama e o que me saiu foi um romance histórico, baseado em factos verídicos. De facto, Mary Broad existiu e viveu todas aquelas coisas horríveis, numa ...more

I read this book a couple of months ago. Now, I have a dreadful memory and normally forget about a book as soon as I've finished the next one, but this one has stuck in my mind as one to recommend to all. It is based on the true story of a woman convict called Mary, who is put on one of the first fleets to Australia. She has to go through so much to survive and even now I still feel moved by her plight. It puts my everyday problems into perspective that's for sure.

Adorei! Que livro lindo! Impressiona mais por saber que é baseado numa história verídica.
A sinopse leva-nos a pensar que se trata de mais um romance cor-de-rosa mas não o é definitivamente.
Este livro só nos demonstra que a força e determinação nos levam sempre onde queremos e que a inteligência e integridade de carácter se sobrepõem à beleza física.
5 estrelas atribuídas com todo o mérito! =D

Apesar de ter gostado, achei que Segue o teu coração foi mais intenso do que este. Claro que simpatizei com a Mary, a sua força apesar de tudo, mas... fiquei com a sensação de que poderia ter sido contado de outra forma que prendesse mais a atenção.

"La verdadera amistad, la más pura, nace del amor. Nunca muere, nunca pierde lustre. Y sobrevive a la muerte".


Este libro me lo recomendaron y tenía muchas dudas en leerlo, primero porque es de época y segundo porque es muy extenso pero mi sorpresa fue que lo disfrute mucho e hice ese viaje con Mary.

El libro nos habla sobre una chica llamada Mary que la encierran por haber intentado robar, pero en esos tiempos los presos eran esclavos y los trataban horrible, sufrian mucho y lo peor es que estaba

Em relação a este livro, começo por dizer que, na minha opinião, a sinopse não é um retrato fiel da história que ele contém. Aliás, tanto a sinopse como a capa (da qual gosto) dão a ideia - pelo menos a mim deram - de que estamos na presença de um romance cor-de-rosa, que por acaso até se passa numa altura conturbada da história da Inglaterra.

Mas a verdade é que "Nunca Me Esqueças" é um romance histórico, que cobre um período da vida da inglesa Mary Broad (ou Bryant), uma mulher que ficou famosa

Antes de mais, é preciso informar de que demorei uns quatro ou cinco meses a percorrer a viagem destas páginas. Comecei com o coração nas mãos e a indignação de quem vê o "simples" roubo de um chapéu punido com uma deportação desumana para a Austrália. Depois soube que a Mary Bryant, ou Broad, existiu mesmo e isso deu novo realismo à história. Li a primeira metade do livro de um sopro, a vida a bordo do Dunkirk - o tifo, a imundície, as febres, as intempéries, etc., os actos grotescos de uma das ...more

Só tenho uma coisa a dizer, fiquei fã desta autora!!!
Mas que livro excelente, desde o princípio ao fim. Não me apeteceu largar o livro nem por um minuto, queria sempre perceber o que ia acontecer com Mary a seguir.
Mary é das melhores personagens que conheci até hoje, é a mulher mais determinada que alguma vez tive o prazer de conhecer. É uma mulher nada egoísta e que fez tudo, não só pelo bem dela, mas também fez muito pelo bem dos outros.
O melhor deste livro é que é baseado numa história real,

A primeira vez que vi o livro e li a sinopse, julguei que estava perante um romance cor-de-rosa, mas assim que li que era um romance-histórico e li algumas opiniões, senti-me tentada a dar uma oportunidade ao livro. E ainda bem que o fiz.
O livro acompanha a história de Mary Broad, uma jovem que foi condenada a forca por ter roubado um chapéu, mas a qual lhe é dada a oportunidade de ir para a Austrália durante 7 anos. No entanto, onde podemos julgar que a sua vida lhe poderia ser mais fácil, Mary

Antes de mais, há que dar os parabéns ao responsável da editora original que aprovou este título, capa e sinopse para esta história. E sim, estou a ser sarcástica.

Não se trata de nenhuma histórica cor-de-rosa dos tempos modernos.

É sim um excelente relato histórico sobre a vida de Mary Broad/ Mary Bryant e a sua deportação.
Na minha opinião, o único romance reside no amor que teve pelos seus filhos (especialmente por Charlotte) e, claro, por ela própria.

It wasn't till I finished the book - and after
clearing out my #shelfie, that I realized I already own an old copy of it and was also actually planning to watch its movie.
Remember me is a fiction based on the true story of Mary Broad who was convicted and deported to Australia.
We follow her survival story and whether she ever makes it back home.
It was such a griping story filled with lots of emotions. I fell in love with Mary and all the characters. I cried, I screamed, had tears of joy, and was

This book reminds me of The Thorn Birds. The struggle of a woman who lost everything in her life. Mary Broad was a prisoner from London, and would be taken to Sydney. But the ship stopped at New South Wales, the a lot of things happened in the middle. It's a wonderful story and the book is a page turner. And happy to say this is my 49th books of this year. Yeay

ENG: I decided to read a Lesley Pearse book hoping it would be one of those cute romances everybody talks about. However, and without me knowing, I chose one of her books that do not fit it that category. In fact, I had never read such a violent book in my life.

I loved this book! I have now read three books by Lesley Pearse and I am amazed at how very different they are. Remember me is a novel based on a true story and so I found myself not only enjoying the story but also learning such a lot. Although I knew that Australia was once a destination for convicts I had no idea of the conditions on the voyage or the hardships that those on the first fleet endured. You cannot fail to be affected by the story of Mary Broad and you mourn and rejoice with her a ...more

I'm always slightly cynical with historical fiction written from facts, it can either be drier than Gandhi's flip flop or over embellished beyond recognition.

This was neither, Pearse kept a decent balance and lets you come to know each character without letting you forget this is a true story.

I know a lot of the places in the book personally and she made me see them in a different light. I cried for the characters and laughed with them too! If you love historical fiction this is a must read no

This was an enthralling read. I really enjoyed the historical aspect of the convicts experience aboard the First Fleet and their subsequent arrival and settlement in Port Jackson. It was an eye-opener to read how hard their experience was, especially if you were a women as they were greatly outnumbered by the men and didn't have the same opportunities.
Mary was a great character and I got caught up in her story and her resilience to survive.

Uma das escritoras inglesas mais amadas, Lesley Pearse tem fãs por todo o mundo e os seus livros já venderam mais de dois milhões de cópias. Sejam romances históricos, policiais ou romances contemporâneos, todos eles marcam os seus leitores pela força das suas personagens e pela forma como a autora consegue transmitir um misto de sensações em poucas palavras, sensações que ela própria já sentiu, uma vez que os seus livros se baseiam muitas vezes na sua própria experiência de vida, na sua auto-de ...more

Llegué con una idea equivocada (my fault) y pensé que sería más romántica. Ya sé que está basada en una historia real, pero tanto drama me mata y por ello se me ha hecho un poco pesada.
