Review: "Dark Aemilia" by Sally O'Reilly

Hello folks!

I know it's been awhile since I have brought you a review, so apologies are in order. I've been either sick and/or recuperating from surgery for most of this month, so I've only been doing minimal posting.

Today I bring you a brief review of Dark Aemilia by Sally O'Reilly. I should preface this by saying that I stopped reading about 3/4 of the way through. It's not because it wasn't a good book. But I was thoroughly disturbed by a chaotic section of the novel involving black magic. The description of the novel mentioned that the main character would end up dabbling in the dark arts, and so I expected this to some extent. I did not expect how uneasy it would make me. So if you are a sensitive reader you may want to skip this one.

If you're not, then read on! The first 3/4 of this novel were very interesting and amusing. O'Reilly does a superb job of capturing the waning years of Elizabethan England and rise of William Shakespeare. Readers will think they have entered a Shakespearean play complete with all the saucy language and hilarious retorts of the period. The author does not shy away from discussing the realities of life from the period. With glossy romances and big screen movies depicting the age as one of immense beauty, it's easy to forget the conditions that most people, even the wealthy ones, lived in.

The novel essentially opens with Aemilia Bassano the bastard orphan of a former court musician and his paramour (later wife) is making her way through Queen Elizabeth's court. She has been a fixture there since she was a child but after her parents' deaths, she becomes the mistress of a wealthy and powerful lord. He treats her well and she is satisfied to some extent. It is a run-in with William Shakespeare that sets her down a much different path. After turning up pregnant by the emerging poet and playwright, Aemilia must marry a silly man in order to keep her child. Her son becomes her whole world, definitely to his detriment as he is a horrid little thing, and when his life is imperiled by the plague, she turns to black magic to save him. This is where I stopped, but the main gist was that Aemilia struck a deal with the devil to save her son. In recompense she is to write a play that eventually become famous for its hard hearted "heroine" and the presence of witches: MacBeth. Some presence apparently consumes her as prior to this, she had tried to write and publish poems and pamphlets for years without success. I imagine that the remainder of the novel is about how the play comes to be credited to Shakespeare and whether or not Aemilia becomes permanently reconciled to him (they quarreled over her pregnancy).

At the end of the day, if you're not at all freaked out by black magic, I recommend you read this novel. Lovers of the period will definitely enjoy this romp through Old England.

Dark Aemilia will be available May 27, 2014 from Picador.

Disclaimer: I received this novel through Netgalley (and the publisher) in exchange for a fair review.

Author Spotlight and Giveaway: Rebecca Kanner's "Sinners and the Sea"

Hi folks, today I'm spotlighting Rebecca Kanner and her novel "Sinners and the Sea". To win a copy, go here.

Sinners and the Sea Rebecca Kanner
Published: April 2, 2013
ISBN: 9781451695250
Genre: Historical Fiction


The young heroine in Sinners and the Sea is destined for greatness. Known only as “wife” in the Bible and cursed with a birthmark that many think is the brand of a demon, this unnamed woman lives anew through Rebecca Kanner. The author gives this virtuous woman the perfect voice to make one of the Old Testament’s stories come alive like never before.

Desperate to keep her safe, the woman’s father gives her to the righteous Noah, who weds her and takes her to the town of Sorum, a haven for outcasts. Alone in her new life, Noah’s wife gives him three sons. But living in this wicked and perverse town with an aloof husband who speaks more to God than to her takes its toll. She tries to make friends with the violent and dissolute people of Sorum while raising a brood that, despite its pious upbringing, develops some sinful tendencies of its own. While Noah carries out the Lord’s commands, she tries to hide her mark and her shame as she weathers the scorn and taunts of the townspeople.

But these trials are nothing compared to what awaits her after God tells her husband that a flood is coming—and that Noah and his family must build an ark so that they alone can repopulate the world. As the floodwaters draw near, she grows in courage and honor, and when the water finally recedes, she emerges whole, displaying once and for all the indomitable strength of women. Drawing on the biblical narrative and Jewish mythology, Sinners and the Sea is a beauti­fully written account of the antediluvian world told in cinematic detail.

About the Author
Sinners and the Sea is Rebecca Kanner’s debut novel. Rebecca is a Twin Cities native and holds a Master of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from Washington University in St. Louis.

Praise for Sinners and the Sea

“Kanner animates a harsh, almost dystopic world of fallen people struggling to survive. Noah’s unnamed wife is a powerful, memorable character.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“[Noah's wife] proves her strength and character as she tries to protect her family… from the outside forces that threaten. Kanner successfully undertakes a formidable task retelling a familiar religious story through the eyes of Noah’s wife. The narrative’s well-articulated, evenly balanced and stimulating—but it’s definitely not the familiar tale that’s so frequently illustrated in children’s books” – Kirkus Reviews

“SINNERS AND THE SEA is a rare find–a bold and vivid journey to the antediluvian world of Noah. Kanner’s is a fresh, irresistible story about the unnamed woman behind the famous ark-builder. Compelling and masterfully written.” – Tosca Lee, NY Times bestelling author of HAVAH: THE STORY OF EVE.

“What a remarkable debut! Rebecca Kanner’s SINNERS AND THE SEA is a haunting, beautifully written story of struggle and redemption told through the eyes of the Biblical prophet Noah’s wife. Kanner pulls no punches: She gives us humanity in all its wickedness — bloodthirsty, greedy, cruel — and the horror and heartbreak the inhabitants of Noah’s ark might have felt as, unable to help, they listened to the screams of the dying and witnessed the utter obliteration of life on Earth. By the end of this book, I was in tears, for Kanner does lead us out of the valley of the shadow of death into a new world of promise and hope. SINNERS AND THE SEA is a profoundly moving tale, thrilling and fast-paced, and one of the best books I have read in a very long time.”- Sherry Jones, author, THE JEWEL OF MEDINA and FOUR SISTERS, ALL QUEENS

Interview with an Author: D. Grant Fitter and "City of Promises"

Hello dear readers! Today I'm spotlighting D. Grant Fitter's novel of intrigue set in 1940s Mexico City, "City of Promises."

Is there an economic value of one’s soul? “By divine good fortune I live in the most glamorous era of a famously enticing city. By obscene misfortune I’m shut out by its ruling elite.” Daring ways to make it big are on offer in Mexico City in the 1940s, but best watch your back! If Arturo Fuentes barters virtue to maneuver in on the action, will the consequence of his choices be too much to bear?

The rebirth of one of the world’s most colorful cities forms the rich backdrop for this historically discerning tale of treachery, intrigue and political corruption.

CW: Welcome to the blog. You used to be a journalist, so what inspired you to turn from that to novel writing?
DGF: Transitioning from features writer to novelist is not a big change really. Nice part about it is, a novel gives the writer more space and fewer restrictions to say want he must say. For years I knew there were a few novels in me just waiting for the “right time” to make a complete commitment to them. At any rate you are asking what inspired me. Well, in my latter years a journalist, I also instructed an adult education course in creative writing for a few years at a local school board. In each semester there was always someone who surfaced as a pleasant surprise and a brilliant inspiration to everyone in the class. And sometimes one of those amazing someones would thank me for being their motivation. Me? Here I was sitting on my research, formulating ideas, getting ready and getting ready. Inspiration has this habit of sneaking up on you.

CW: What about Mexico inspires you?
DGF: I am inspired by the smiles of the people, music everywhere, amazing food and carefree fiesta, and despite the vast majority’s struggle to attain a meagre living, the Mexican capacity to celebrate the little joys of life. I know that when I function in Spanish I am a different person but can not tell you why that is. I neglected to mention the chaos of Mexico in that list. I know of one Mexican who likes to say that chaos defies description. I feel the inspiration everywhere and can’t pinpoint it, can not describe it adequately in this short answer for you.
I wrote a novel instead.

CW: Why did you decide to set your novel in the 1940s?
DGF: It is a combination of where and when, really. Mexico City has an exciting history stretching over 700 years. Numerous authors have found the ancient history a source of great interest for their writing and so there is a generous amount of stories told of these times. By the early 1500s, more populated and highly developed than say London or Paris, it was one of the world’s great cities and in the twenty first century it is once again. So there is a million stories of boom and bust, adventure and hardship to be told. It is an interesting where but the when is for me, even more-so.

The re-birth of the metropolis as we know it today, put down its roots in the first half of the twentieth century and while the rest of the world was caught up in the second great war, the city burst forth to flourish both culturally and economically.
That’s the time period I find so interesting because so much of what happened in the decade of the 40s defines that city, that nation, as it thrives today. The Mexican’s ongoing attachment with the 1940s is something more powerful than nostalgia. In many traditions, in much of the popular music and popular dance and in the defining social protocol, the 1940s lives on. I had to understand why.
I don’t know of another novelist’s effort to re-live the magic of the 1940s.    

CW: What are you reading now?
DGF: The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. And before you ask, yes I do have a definite preference for historical fiction. These stories take us back in time to places we cannot go and when done right, offer us a valuable, entertaining version of how things might have been.

CW: What authors inspire you?
DGF: It would appear the theme of today’s line of questioning might be inspiration Caroline, but when it comes to other authors I do not think that for me, inspiration is the word. Over time an accumulation of writers such as John Steinbeck, Upton Sinclair and John Updike subtlety influenced my perception. This may surprise you, but journalist Andy Rooney’s keen insight and gift of persuasive delivery has been an influencer of how we might look at things. Points of view? I probably am not consciously aware but journalist Paul Harvey’s unique ability to roll out a story must work on me and then too, because you asked about my switch from journalism to novelist, Ernest Hemmingway is on this list because he has shown us it can be done. Seriously though, Hemingway is a great teacher of the power of the unspoken word or more accurately, the power of the unwritten word. And I did say is and not was, because all of his unspoken words are still out there flying around awaiting discovery.

CW: A big thanks to you for joining me today!

About the Author

D. Grant Fitter is a citizen of North America. Born in Ontario, Canada and educated in Colorado, USA, he is convinced he was Mexican in his previous life. How else to explain such a strong attraction to Mexico and all things Mexican, including his wife.
His business career includes long stints of work in Mexico before yielding to a pesky urge to pursue freelance journalism for seventeen years. Meanwhile, Fitter’s Mexican roots continued to call. City of Promises is the product of his curiosity to understand why the culture of our close neighbors is so distant from our own.
He lives in Toronto and whenever possible, in a sunny hillside casita in the colonial town of Taxco, Guerrero.

Author Spotlight: Sandi Denkers and "Waiting In Deep"

Hello folks! Today I'm spotlighting "local to me" author, Sandi Denkers and her Southern Historical novel "Waiting In Deep." It is a finalist in Foreword Review's 2013 Book of the Year Award and was longlisted for the Southern Independent Bookseller's Association Book of the Year Award.

Publisher: America Star Books
Date: June 27, 2013

In 1943, Lottie Johnson’s husband and young daughter were tragically killed. Her troubled, estranged cousin, Edgar Dewberry, is the only person who knows exactly what happened and is still trying to forget. In 1972, he returns to Mt. Brayden, South Carolina at the same time the town council wants to buy Lottie’s land for their expansion. In her anger she makes a deal with God: if he will show her, in a practical way, how to love the people she hates, she’ll do it. His answer is in the two acre garden surrounding her. Following his instructions, her life is altered with such magnitude, even the town she once hated, reaps the benefits of her obedience.

Through years of journaling, her endearing relationship with 10-year-old Rebecca, and exasperating relationship with Dovie, her hilarious neighbor, Lottie exchanges her grave clothes for more than she is capable of imagining. Waiting in Deep drops you in the center of southern culture during the 1970s; four unforgettable lives keep you there long after the last page is read.
Waiting in Deep weaves complexity with simplicity, heartache with humor, producing a remarkable story you won’t forget. Waiting in Deep’s vivid imagery and beautifully developed characters and setting, will leave you wanting more. It’s more than a story.

Author Spotlight: "The Winter Siege" by DW Bradbridge

Today's Author Spotlight shines on D.W. Bradbridge and his novel of the English Civil War "The Winter Siege."

Publication Date: October 1, 2013
Electric Reads
Paperback; 488p
ISBN-10: 14927957121643. The armies of King Charles I and Parliament clash in the streets and fields of England, threatening to tear the country apart, as winter closes in around the parliamentary stronghold of Nantwich. The royalists have pillaged the town before, and now, they are returning. But even with weeks to prepare before the Civil War is once more at its gates, that doesn’t mean the people of Nantwich are safe.
While the garrison of soldiers commanded by Colonel George Booth stand guard, the town’s residents wait, eyeing the outside world with unease, unaware that they face a deadly threat from within. Townspeople are being murdered – the red sashes of the royalists left on the bodies marking them as traitors to the parliamentary cause.
When the first dead man is found, his skull caved in with a rock, fingers start being pointed, and old hatreds rise to the surface. It falls to Constable Daniel Cheswis to contain the bloodshed, deputising his friend, Alexander Clowes, to help him in his investigations, carried out with the eyes of both armies on his back. And they are not the only ones watching him.
He is surrounded by enemies, and between preparing for the imminent battle, watching over his family, being reunited with his long-lost sweetheart, and trying, somehow, to stay in business, he barely has time to solve a murder.
With few clues and the constant distraction of war, can Cheswis protect the people of Nantwich? And which among them need protecting? Whether they are old friends or troubled family, in these treacherous times, everyone’s a traitor, in war, law, or love.
When the Winter Siege is through, who will be among the bodies?

About the Author

D.W. Bradbridge was born in 1960 and grew up in Bolton. He has lived in Crewe, Cheshire since 2000, where he and his wife run a small magazine publishing business for the automotive industry.
“The inspiration for The Winter Siege came from a long-standing interest in genealogy and local history. My research led me to the realisation that the experience endured by the people of Nantwich during December and January 1643-44 was a story worth telling. I also realised that the closed, tension-filled environment of the month-long siege provided the ideal setting for a crime novel.
“History is a fascinating tool for the novelist. It consists only of what is remembered and written down, and contemporary accounts are often written by those who have their own stories to tell. But what about those stories which were forgotten and became lost in the mists of time?
“In writing The Winter Siege, my aim was to take the framework of real history and fill in the gaps with a story of what could, or might have happened. Is it history or fiction? It’s for the reader to decide.”

Author Spotlight: Carol Cram's "The Towers of Tuscany"

Today's spotlight is on Carol Cram and her new novel "Towers of Tuscany." Called "a beautifully crafted masterpiece of historical fiction", "lush", and "page-turning" Cram's debut novel will appeal to readers who enjoy a strong female lead who, against great odds, dares to follow a dream. The Towers of Tuscany includes a Reader's Guide making it a perfect Book Club pick! .

  The Towers of Tuscany
Publication Date: January 23, 2014 New Arcadia Publishing

Formats: Paperback, Ebook Genre: Historical Fiction

Set amid the twisting streets and sunlit piazzas of medieval Italy, the Towers of Tuscany tells the story of a woman who dares to follow her own path in the all-male domain of the painter’s workshop. Sofia Barducci is born into a world where a woman is only as good as the man who cares for her, but she still claims the right to make her own mistakes. Her first mistake is convincing her father to let her marry Giorgio Carelli, a wealthy saffron merchant in San Gimignano, the Tuscan city of towers. Trained in secret by her father to create the beautifully-crafted panels and altarpieces acclaimed today as masterpieces of late medieval art, Sofia’s desire for freedom from her father’s workshop leads her to betray her passion and sink into a life of loveless drudgery with a husband who comes to despise her when she does not produce a son. In an attack motivated by vendetta, Sofia’s father is crushed by his own fresco, compelling Sofia to act or risk the death of her soul. The choice she makes takes her on a journey from misery to the heights of passion—both as a painter and as a woman. Sofia escapes to Siena where, disguised as a boy, she paints again. When her work attracts the notice of a nobleman who discovers the woman under the dirty smock, Sofia is faced with a choice that nearly destroys her. The Towers of Tuscany unites a strong heroine with meticulously researched settings and compelling characters drawn from the rich tapestry of medieval Italy during one of Europe's most turbulent centuries. The stylishly written plot is packed with enough twists and turns to keep readers up long past their bedtimes.
