"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Every bit as good, if not better, than her highly acclaimed previous novels. An intriguing plot, sympathetic characterisation and beautifully observed, sophisticated writing all make for a hugely satisfying read (Booksellers' Choice)
This is the third of her seductive novels and quite the best to date ... haunting, passionate ... full of sensual language [and] vivid snapshot imagery ... this superb story ... has an extraordinary female intensity and authentic emotional punch (Barbara Trapido, The Independent)
O'Farrell pulls a passionate and absorbing love story out of the bag (THE MIRROR)
Maggie O'Farrell has written three novels, each of them a critical and commercial success ... her confidence in her characters' plausibility is endearing ... She tends to their emotional lives with the inexhaustible tenderness of a doting mother (FINANCIAL TIMES)
hyper-sensitive examination of family relationships ... ambitious and trickily arranged narrative ... The result is a skilful, sensitive romantic novel (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)
Her gift for story-telling is wrapped in gold paper and tied with 15 velvet bows. Give her any synopsis you like and she would probably make it work ... Maggie O'Farrell has a magical talent for writing sensuous love scenes which are somehow touchingly old-fashioned (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
Fans of the earlier books can expect the same telling observations, evocative descriptions and a narrative that moves seamlessly between past and present (SCOTSMAN ON SUNDAY)
Set largely between Hong Kong and the Scottish Highlands, Maggie O'Farrell's third novel is a story about family and emigration - and the way you can never escape your family, or their history, no matter how far you travel. Stella - spirited, witty and passionate - has fled London to confront the childhood secret which has marked her life, and twinned her destiny with her sister's. A set of tragic circumstances and a hasty marriage bring Jake from Hong Kong to Britain, where he embarks upon a quest for the father he never knew. When Jake and Stella meet, both their lives are changed forever, but not before Stella's past is brought painfully out into the open. THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US is a loving, immensely moving and often very funny look at the way families work, which will live with the reader forever, and bring Maggie O'Farrell to her widest readership yet.
