Description

But my biggest source of disbelief with this book (aside from being oblivious from the fact that she lived in a whorehouse) was Belle's unwavering innocence and determination. While this made the book hard to read at times, it gave the story the gravity and openness it needed and was owed. By the end it felt like old seasons of 90210 where you wondered what's the next horrible thing they can make to the same character. For further information about your statutory rights, contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice center (for example the Citizen's Advice Bureau if you are in the UK).

Another thing I found annoying was that every time Lisette is mentioned, Pearse has to work in the fact that the lives of Lisette and her son will be in danger.The one thing she does right is working towards her dream of becoming a milliner even after all this while. Já sabia que Lesley Pearse é conhecida por escrever histórias com muito sofrimento e lições de vida. Volunteering to help battlefield wounded, Belle is posted to France as a Red Cross ambulance driver. Para finalizar e apesar do que disse no início, volto a repetir que gostei muito e mesmo sabendo que será uma leitura difícil para alguns recomendo-a!

A autora é conhecida pelos seus enredos complexos e digamos a puxar para o triste, e este livro não foge à regra. Jimmy, o primeiro amor de Belle, que a conheceu antes de ser levada e que fará de tudo para a recuperar, juntamente com Mog, protectora de Belle, desde o seu nascimento. Lesley Pearse, author of the UK and international best-sellers A Lesser Evil and Trust Me, takes her heroine from London to New Orleans and beyond in her powerful and moving historical novel Belle. I've read stories before of women going into prostitution and books like Memoirs of a Geisha and Tears of Tess have captured it so much better.Her friend Jimmy and Mog and even Annie is scared of what will happen to Belle but seems helpless when faced with the prospect of rescuing her from the clutches of the Falcon. Temos também um bom leque de personagens secundárias, principalmente Ettiene, que foi tão bom descobrir. Belle is the daughter of a brothel owner in the streets of Seven Dials, London, but while she was brought up in such a place, she is blissfully unaware of what goes around in her home.

Apesar das dificuldades, ela luta todos os dias por fugir da situação em que está, pensando sempre na sua família e no enorme desejo de voltar para junto deles. Este foi o meu primeiro livro de Lesley Pearse e parti para a leitura sem qualquer pista relativamente à história: não li a sinopse e procurei não ler qualquer opinião ou informação sobre ele. The subject matter of Human Trafficking had me concerned as I would normally not choose to read that type of book. I just felt that for such a young girl, who experienced such terrible things, she bounced back awfully quickly, which I found a bit unrealistic. Apesar de todo o livro ser centrado em si, não podemos (nem devemos) esquecer as personagens secundárias que também contribuem para a riqueza do livro.This book is set in London in 1912 which was really interesting and it even mentioned the sinking of the Titanic! Muitos de vocês provavelmente já leram os três livros, mas admito que um pouco por causa do tamanho dos livros, nunca tive coragem de os começar a ler. If you're looking for an easy read, a story where you can root for the main character and a lighter version of a prostitution story then Belle is your book.

Encontramos Belle, um jovem de 15 anos que não conhece outra realidade senão a do mundo da prostituição. Serve como meio de entretenimento (e mesmo nesse aspecto parece-me que poderia ter funcionado melhor com menos floreado e menos páginas, pois a dada altura começou a tornar-se maçador e foi necessária alguma paciência para chegar ao fim). Right from the very beginning you are introduced to the main character Belle, who is a 15-year-old girl full of innocence despite living in the ground floors of her Mothers Brothel. Dramático, intenso, comovente, absorvente, enervante e revoltante - dos trabalhos de Lesley Pearse editados até à data em Portugal, Sonhos Proibidos é agora um dos meus preferidos! The author styled it into more of a murder mystery that kept me on the edge of my chair as we follow the life of Belle who is not yet 20 years old making unwise decisions in her young life.But all that changes when she inadvertently becomes witness to the murder of a girl working in the brothel at the hands of a very dangerous criminal.
