This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Cristina Bruni is new to me, but I will definitely be watching for more from her! La Pollux salta in aria danneggiando pesantemente il vascello francese impegnato pennone contro pennone, ed una delle due fregate viene portata dalla Surprise a sbattere contro gli scogli mentre l’altra si rifugia in porto. The story is imbued with colorful descriptions but scenes jump from one to another leaving somewhat disjointed impression. Once Benjamin discovers John has left him, he sets sail to find him. In Moderato Cantabile un sottoromanzo psicologico si sviluppa attraverso la narrazione di gesti apparentemente irrilevanti. In attesa che la Surprise venga riparata, a Jack viene affidato un incarico temporaneo: This is the second book that she’s translated for us English speaking folks to enjoy.
This novella was originally written in Italian and I wonder if per Captain Benjamin Scott of the Royal Navy is dry-docked in Gibraltar waiting for repairs to his ship Sunrise when he encounters a blond man in a bookstore that looks remarkably like Jack, a crew member lost at sea during a battle. I wanted them to be happy, in whatever form that would take. I’m so glad that the author translated this book! I did not like Ben taking him on as a cabin boy when Ben is Captain. Fear of what it’d mean for him to love another man kept him from loving Jack before Jack was shot in a sea battle; every day since the loss of Jack all Benjamin has lived for has been sailing and trying to forget his feelings for Jack. And while I know that it was something that had to be done in those times, I really didn’t like the fact that Benjamin was married, even though he didn’t love his wife. I loved that he was waylaid in Gibraltar for ship repairs since it’s a romantic location for him to try to confront his long lost love. I was happy to read some of Johns inner thoughts as well.

Amnesia is a fun plot point to put into a story especially when it’s lost love.

This story just did not work for me. The book has a terrific pace and was visual enough without belaboring mundane details. I received copy of this book in exchange for review.
Every moment they spend together is a sweet torture for Benjamin. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Sep ggibilterra, Ellen Balhorn rated it it was amazing. What I didn’t like: Splendida davvero, ti rimane in mente e non puoi smettere di sentirti soddisfatta alla fine della lettura.
One has a past of heartbreak and loss, the other can’t remember his. While the story has an interesting premise a twist on the familiar amnesia tropethe dilm style moves from lyrical emotions and thoughts to short brisk disjointed sentences. I silenzi sono carichi di significato, quasi assordanti. The blonde man has to be his Jack! The ending was disappointing to me.
A friendship grows between the two men, soon turning to love. The story itself is well-written and expressive.
There is a lot of emotion in such a short book and I was both surprised and delighted that Cristina was able to accomplish all of that. Parole e atteggiamenti vogliono dire veramente quello che esprimono, eppure al tempo stesso trascendono il loro significato, lasciando il lettore dalla prima all’ultima pagina sospeso fra assolute certezze gibklterra dubbi laceranti.
I did not like Ben taking him on as a cabin boy when Ben is Captain. I think it was due to the atmospheric writing of Cristina Bruni which captured the feeling of Gibraltar very well.

Benjamin Scott is a fair man and a fearless sea captain, but his heart is broken. Da Wikipedia, l’enciclopedia libera. Ho apprezzato moltissimo lo stile narrativo della scrittrice e le scelte fatte, sia nel farci “entrare” direttemente nel pieno dell’azione, sia nel risovere il “mistero”. Potete trovare tutte le mie recensioni su madinaio Everything became gray and lifeless, and a horrible empty ache came to life in the pit of his belly, crawled up and took root marinaioo in his heart.
This novella is pages on my iPad gibilrerra there is a lot of emotion packed into it. Even though Ben was convinced the man he was dealing with was his lost love, he didn’t fall in love with the memory, he fell in love, and admitted it, with the person he had in front of him.
