William Martin: Cape Cod

  • Warner Books paperback edition 1992

Eeppinen saaga, joka kertoo kahden amerikkalaisen perheiden historia siitä kun perheiden ensimmäiset edustajat saapuivat maahan Mayflower-laivalla meidän päiviimme asti. Seuraavassa arvostelussa kirjailijaa, William Martinia, verrataan James Michener 'iin, joka on tunnettu samantapaisista romaania ja historiankirjaa yhdistävistä teoksista.

In a sweeping historical saga packed with history and incident, Martin ( Back Bay ) follows two intertwined yet bitterly antagonistic families from their Pilgrim origins to the present day.

On board the Mayflower, sanctimonious church elder Ezra Bigelow and whaler Jack Hilyard, who defies the Pilgrims' rules of piety and obedience, take an immediate and intense dislike to each other. An observant mariner on board ship keeps a detailed log and chronicles a shocking incident that would bring shame and dishonor upon the Bigelow family if it were made known.

The log is lost, but its trail gleams like a golden thread through the narrative, and, as the ever-wealthier Bigelows and the rakish Hilyards clash bitterly over the years (particularly over a prime piece of Cape Cod shoreline called Jack's Island that is continually changing hands), the log emerges briefly now and then to inspire blackmail and unease.

After Martin's less than reverent look at our Pilgrim forefathers, he packs the narrative with abundant adultery, several massacres, pirateering, slave-trading and rum-running. In the current generation, Geoff Hilyard is trying to save his part of Jack's Island from avaricious Bigelow developers. To stave off financial ruin, he is searching for the elusive Mayflower log, now an enormously valuable historical document. Martin gives Michener a run for his money with this rousing tale.

Kirja kertoo nuoren lahjakaan violinistin ja varkkaan yläluokan naisen tragisesti loppuvasta rakkaustarinasta. The Downing People (suom. Meren huoneissa) on lyyrinen ja koskettava romaani syyllisyydestä, viattomuuden menettämisestä, vastuusta ja ensirakkaudesta.

It is a cold afternoon in winter. An old man sits in a room high above the sea, watching the sun set. It is twenty-four hours since the death of his wife at Seton Castle, the home they had shared for more than forty years. And as it grows dark, he tries to make sense of a life only recently understood; and to explain how he, by no means a violent man, has come to kill in cold blood...

"My wife of more than forty-five years shot herself yesterday afternoon. At least that is what the police assume, and I am playing the part of grieving widower with enthusiasm and success..."

The Drowning People is not a typical murder mystery, for we are given the identity of the killer--the who--immediately. The puzzle in this introspective novel is why--why did 70-year-old James Farrell murder his aristocratic wife, Sarah?

The answer lies nearly 50 years into the past as the book ranges from Prague to London, from France to a remote castle in Cornwall. At its core is an intoxicating love affair between 22-year-old James, a talented violinist and hopeless romantic, and Ella Harewood, an American heiress to an English title, trapped by her heritage and destiny. A beautifully written exploration of self-absorbed first love and its tragic consequences...

Entering the Plaza Hotel ballroom, Adam and Katrinka Graham radiated the dazzling energy of power, wealth and astounding achievement--two people in love and at life's pinnacle. Her jewels flashing in photographers' lights, Katrinka had traveled far since her dramatic escape from communist Czechoslovakia, when she skied down a Swiss mountain toward a new and exciting life..

.Adam Graham, a vital, sexual man who had built a huge personal fortune, met his match in his wife, Katrinka. She was a bold, beautiful entrepreneur, whose intimate hotels were acclaimed worldwide for their first-class, luxurious service. And her considerable success was made only sweeter by the friendships she valued so much.

From Manhattan to Aspen and Newport...from London to the Riviera and Venice., Katrinka delighted in her sophisticated circle of friends, whose elan, accomplishments, and joie de vivre mirrored her own.

But no one could protect Katrinka from the secret anguish of her past... the baby she had borne and been forced to leave behind in Europe. And Katrinka did not suspect that, among those intimates she trusted most, one was about to snatch her fragile happiness suddenly, terrible, away...

Romaani soveliaisuutta ja rauhallista puutarhaelämää rakstavasta Henrystä, jonka seikkailunhaluinen täti houkuttelee mukaan maailmalle...

The novel follows the travels of Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, and his eccentric Aunt Augusta as they find their way across Europe, and eventually even further afield. Aunt Augusta pulls Henry away from his quiet suburban existence into a world of adventure, crime and the highly unconventional details of her past.

Their voyages take them from Paris to Istanbul on the Orient Express, and as the journey unfolds, so do the stories of Aunt Augusta, painting the picture of a woman for whom love has been the defining feature of her life.

Henry returns to his quiet retirement, but tending his garden no longer holds the same allure. When he receives a letter from his aunt, he finally gives up his old life to join her in South America.

As his travels progress it becomes clear to Henry that the woman he had been raised to believe was his mother was in fact his aunt. His real mother is Augusta, and her reconnection with him at her sister's funeral marked the beginning of her reclamation of her child.
