Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

The love story between Ines de Castro and King D Pedro I is one of the most tragic, intense and powerful in European history. Their story has become a legend and it is difficult to separate fact from fiction, where the only certainty that remains is the element of forbidden, but everlasting, love. With her latest work, Ines’ Words, Haidji brings her unique and magical style to this subject and shows not only the enduring power of the legend, but of love itself.

5.0 van 5 sterren Powerful, poetic and beautifully written 14 juni 2017
door Piaras - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Royalty doesn’t get you everything it seems. It’s a well known fact, that when it comes to royalty or aristocracy, you rarely marry for love. More often than not they are usually arranged by the respective families, having their authority, affluence and general interests in mind, with the bride and groom having little or no say in the matter. Since these political arrangements were essential in the power plays (both past and present), there is no room for love. In the case of Prince Pedro of Portugal and Lady Inês de Castro, they were willing to defy these notions. However, not even a King’s forbidden love was safe from destiny’s cruel designs or the court’s cruel plots.

But all is not lost in this powerful, poetic and beautifully written story. The reader is transported into the future where the author creatively and artistically links both worlds between the life of an ordinary woman, Mariana, with the eternal love of Inês and Pedro. To say any more would be giving spoilers away, so you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself to find out!

Author, Haidji, writes with a delicate and imaginative touch. The story was elegantly rendered, beautifully drawn, lyrical and yet thought-provoking. Ines' Words unfurls in small acts, at first feeling slight to touch, then building in emotional substance. Into the spaces between the words, the author breathes a pulsating intensity that rolls between the old and new worlds.

This book with take you on a mesmerizing journey that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page. A book which has been beautifully written and is ultimately a book you simply can’t put down. I, for one, feel all the richer for having read it. There’s no doubt that this author is uniquely talented and I’ll be looking forward to reading more from her in the future.

4.0 van 5 sterren Modern-day love story rekindles obscure tale of Pedro and Ines 12 november 2016
door Sal Nudo - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Haidji’s “Ines’ Words” feels less like a traditional story and more like a long poem of true love. Her words and sentences are short and crisp but pack a penetrating wallop. The book begins with a short recap of an old and tangled story involving two passionate but star-crossed lovers, setting the stage for the thoughts of a modern-day heroine named Mariana centuries later.

The prose of the dream-like book feels arty, historical and exotic; the periodic mention of an iPhone is purposely jarring, a machine that has no business in the fanciful longings of the transplanted Mariana. (My favorite line of the book: Cruel the world in which she lived. Where everything seemed to be more important than love.)

Haidji writes scenes that feel more like memories, snapshots of a time and place rather than a normal timeline. She intertwines the inward-looking journey of Mariana with thoughtful, heartfelt poems that manage to carry the narrative forward and provide context.

This is a short but affecting tale, not one I would normally read, but one I’m glad I took the time to check out.

5.0 van 5 sterren A History lesson, a spiritual love story and poetic virtue all rolled up in One Beautiful Book – 5 Stars 10 juni 2017
door James Okun - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
This is a wonderful book that is poetic and beautifully written. It is also a great history lesson written by a very talented poetess and historical writer. You will want to read it again and again like I did. It is that good!
The first thing that struck me about Ines’ Words was the historical perspective given at the beginning of the book. The author, Haidji, obviously did extensive research to be historically correct and to allow us to learn from the past. It is unique and a refreshing, genuine approach.
In the past, specifically in Portugal in the 1300’s we are told about the royal family’s intrigues and the murder of an innocent victim.
We meet another version of Romeo and Juliet where Pedro (King D Pedro 1) meets Ines who is “the lady in waiting” for Constance his wife through an arranged marriage. The problem is Pedro has fallen deeply in love with “the beautiful Ines” and ignores his new wife. This infuriates his father King Afonso IV who first exiles Ignes and then orders her murder. Then comes revenge and so much more.
We are then transported into the future to 2020 and the rest is an exciting love story and history. And everlasting love.
You will love this book and emerge treasuring both poetry and prose, the past and the future. 5 Stars!

5.0 van 5 sterren A great epic! 30 mei 2017
door Jastin - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
The author had creatively linked two worlds: the renaissance and the modern time, and that is, between the life of an ordinary woman, Mariana, to the 13th century setting brimmed with eternal love of Ines and Pedro. There's a beautiful poem that heightens the shade of the story called, If I Knew, which I love as much as any altruistic person will do. This book represents history in the facet of true love dressed in timeless thoughts! It's the book that inspired me to revive my passion in reading!

5.0 van 5 sterren & a love turned tragedy began/ended for both of them 1 juli 2016
door Tony Parsons - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
King Alfonso IV (Portugal) had arranged a marriage for his son King D Pedro I with Constanca de Penafiel (Spain).

However, that did not happen & King Dom Pedro I met Ines de Castro, & a love turned tragedy began/ended for both of them.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written 14th. century romantic (partial prose) book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great 14th. century romance movie, or mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free (Self-published; Autographed; Paperback book)
