[NEW UPDATE] Aggiornamento sui libri: Marilla of Green Gables e Bring me back

Cari amici,
finalmente stanno arrivando le prime risposte per quanto riguarda la traduzione e la pubblicazione in Italia di alcune opere di cui vi ho parlato nella mia rubrica dei "New Update".

"Marilla of Green Gables" di Sarah McCoy 

La prima di cui vi parlo in realtà non è stata segnalata da me ma da una lettrice che voleva sapere quanto sarebbe stato pubblicato "Marilla of Green Gables" di Sarah McCoy in Italia.
Sicuramente il titolo vi richiama il ben più famoso "Anna dai capelli rossi", infatti, il libro è ambientato prima della storia di Anna e la trama mi sembra molto interessante, come penso anche a chi sia appassionato del personaggio creato da Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Dopo aver contattato l'autrice sembra che il libro verrà tradotto in italiano anche se ad oggi non si conosce l'editore o quando verrà pubblicato.
Di Sarah McCoy avevo letto "La figlia dei ricordi", un romanzo ambientato nella seconda guerra mondiale che mi aveva colpito moltissimo e che ricordo sempre con il sorriso.
Per il momento vi lascio la cover e la trama del libro.

Trama in inglese:

A bold, heartfelt tale of life at Green Gables . . . before Anne: A marvelously entertaining and moving historical novel, set in rural Prince Edward Island in the nineteenth century, that imagines the young life of spinster Marilla Cuthbert, and the choices that will open her life to the possibility of heartbreak—and unimaginable greatness

Plucky and ambitious, Marilla Cuthbert is thirteen years old when her world is turned upside down. Her beloved mother has dies in childbirth, and Marilla suddenly must bear the responsibilities of a farm wife: cooking, sewing, keeping house, and overseeing the day-to-day life of Green Gables with her brother, Matthew and father, Hugh.

In Avonlea—a small, tight-knit farming town on a remote island—life holds few options for farm girls. Her one connection to the wider world is Aunt Elizabeth “Izzy” Johnson, her mother’s sister, who managed to escape from Avonlea to the bustling city of St. Catharines. An opinionated spinster, Aunt Izzy’s talent as a seamstress has allowed her to build a thriving business and make her own way in the world.

Emboldened by her aunt, Marilla dares to venture beyond the safety of Green Gables and discovers new friends and new opportunities. Joining the Ladies Aid Society, she raises funds for an orphanage run by the Sisters of Charity in nearby Nova Scotia that secretly serves as a way station for runaway slaves from America. Her budding romance with John Blythe, the charming son of a neighbor, offers her a possibility of future happiness—Marilla is in no rush to trade one farm life for another. She soon finds herself caught up in the dangerous work of politics, and abolition—jeopardizing all she cherishes, including her bond with her dearest John Blythe. Now Marilla must face a reckoning between her dreams of making a difference in the wider world and the small-town reality of life at Green Gables.

"Sarah McCoy has given readers a precious gift: the opportunity to step back into the world of Avonlea, and the chance to get to know Marilla Cuthbert as a leading lady in her own right. In McCoy's skillful and sensitive hands, Marilla emerges as a heroine of depth, complexity, and heart. I savored my time with this cast of old friends, enjoying the dilemma of whether to speed through these compelling pages or to pause and relish everything about the lovely world imagined within them."
―Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of Beauty in the Broken Places and Sisi.

Bring me back di B.A. Paris

Di questo libro invece vi avevo parlato nel post di cui vi lascio il link, questo è il terzo thriller di B.A Paris, lei stessa mi ha confermato che verrà pubblicato in Italia nel 2019 ma non si sa ancora quando.

Sembra che per gli appassionati del genere e della scrittrice ormai l'attesa stia per terminare, vi lascio intanto la cover e la trama del libro.

Trama in inglese:

Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone—never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.

Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla—hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla’s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen’s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive—and on Finn’s trail—what does she want? And how much does she know?

A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.
