Read full description of the books O Último Verão em Glenmore:Mattie Gokey tem uma palavra a dizer acerca de qualquer assunto. Colecciona palavras, armazena-as de modo a afastar as duras realidades da sua vida, as verdades que não consegue escrever nas suas histórias: a dor ainda recente da morte da mãe, a responsabilidade de ter de criar as irmãs, enquanto o pai luta pela quinta falida, a confusão de sentimentos que nutre pelo bonito mas enfastiante Royal Loomis, que lhe promete casamento, e os sonhos secretos que lhe alimentam a vida – o desejo de acabar o liceu, de ir para a universidade em Nova Iorque e, por fim, de se tornar uma escritora.Mas quando o corpo de uma jovem mulher aparece no lago em frente ao hotel onde Mattie trabalha, todo o seu léxico deixa de fazer sentido. Através da leitura das cartas da vitíma, Mattie acaba por encontrar a voz da mulher e uma determinação forte de viver a própria vida.Com uma acção que se desenvolve em 1906, este livro consegue reunir de modo envolvente romance, história e um crime, transformando-os em qualquer coisa de tocante, real e completamente original.

Jennifer’s first novel, The Tea Rose, an epic historical novel set in London and New York in the late 19th century, was called “exquisite” by Booklist, “so much fun” by the Washington Post, a “guilty pleasure” by People and was named a Top Pick by the Romantic Times.
