The Aviary Gate Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Un segreto sepolto da uattrocento anniGli intrighi dell'harem del sultanoUna storia di passione e tradimentiOxford Biblioteca bodleiana Elizabeth Stavley non crede ai suoi occhi uando tra le pagine di un antico libro di astronomia scopre il frammento di una pergamena vecchia di uattrocento anni Ha il colore dell'ambra ed è fragile come una foglia d'autunno Racconta una storia proibita Una storia rimasta nascosta per secoli che conduce nei uartieri segreti di IstanbulCostantinopoli 1599 Inglesi francesi e veneziani competono tra loro per rafforzare le relazioni diplomatiche e commerciali con il nuovo sultano dell'impero ottomano Paul P. Oh I couldn t give this book anything other than a 5 star rating it has everything I enjoy in a great read An historical romance I ve put the romance in inverted commas because it s not a typical romance with a HEA but rather a romance in the victorian sense of the word Beautifully writen it captured my imagination right from the start I love this time period 16th Century but not from an Elizabethan angle infact I find that period of English history uite boring no it s the Venetian and Ottoman settings I love I also love anything that includes Astronomy maths and mathematical instruments and this story is full of the stuff plus there s intrigue and mystery I also like stories which have an element of reincarnation or sixth sense So this was ideal for me The Avairy Gate is beautifully written set in the Topkapi Harem Constantinople and Modern day Oxford and Istantbul it s a lovely story that spans the centuries From the begining I got a real feel for the characters both in the past and the modern day setting The intrigue that takes place within the harem is well put together some readers may well solve the intrigue but that really isn t the point of the story it s not a murder mystery but rather an insight into the behaviours of the women within the harem and how despite the tranuility and the rules it s really every woman for herself by fair means or foul In the meantime outside the harem walls another story develops and we see both sides of the overall story The modern part of the story pulled me into the centuries past story even futher I found myself not only piecing the story of the past together but also linking the characters from the past with those of the present day I loved the description of Modern day Istanbul and how the author bought in historical settings to that modern world The author spent alot of time researching for her book and I appriciate all the details she included as they really drew me into both stories I just love this book and I m really looking forward to reading the next instalment
