Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

Sophronia Lambert, a schoolteacher on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, lives a quiet life; that is until Nantucket whaling captain James Folger comes ashore. Realizing he is the man who killed her deaf brother, she decides to pursue vengeance – first at home, then at sea-sailing to the far side of the world as his bride. As she grapples with madness and morality, Sophronia’s quest mirrors that of her island community: to find a way forward amidst the pressures of a brutal industry, a nation mired in Civil War, and a past darker than the ocean’s abyss.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

“The safe and sunny island of Martha’s Vineyard would seem an unlikely place for premeditated murder and vengeance of an epic and biblical sort, but in this absorbing novel Tim Bridwell takes us back to the 19th century, and there finds the Vineyard’s heart of darkness. Sophronia L. is both sea yarn and crime novel, reminiscent in its sweep and darkness of The Innocent Voyage (A High Wind in Jamaica).”

—John Hough Jr., Little Bighorn (Arcade Publishing), Seen the Glory and The Last Summer (Simon & Schuster)

“Tim Bridwell shows again why old New England and its historic whaling industry is a perfect backdrop for a mysterious thriller. Beautifully referenced, historically illuminating, and eerily imaginative, Sophronia L. will hold your attention long after the last page is read.”

—John McCaffrey, The Book of Ash (Boxfire Press)

5.0 van 5 sterren A haunting journey through Sophronia's mental illness 30 maart 2015
door Mrs. Mica - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Bridwell's vividly poetic style draws the reader deep into the horrors of the human heart, whether it be Sophriona and Captain Folger's mental illnesses, the sailors' chauvinistic savagery, or the bloody process of spearing and stripping the soulful whales. But like Bridwell's realistic characters, his dark themes are tempered by the other side of humanity; the sudden joys, small pleasures, and even love. In this way, Sophriona's journey on board the Eliza Jane is like a mental breakdown, where she is separated from the two people who understand and love her most as she traverses what for her are uncharted waters.

Sophronia L. boasts the descriptive language of Hemingway and the complex drama of Faulkner, taking readers on a haunting journey through Sophronia's mental illness, manifest through her obsession with Captain Folger's death. I would absolutely recommend Sophronia L. as a superb novel for those who enjoy literary and historic fiction.

5.0 van 5 sterren Beautifully referenced, historically illuminating 13 december 2014
door John - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Tim Bridwell shows us again why old New England and its historic whaling industry hold such magic and mystery for novelists. Thrilling, eerie, poetic and powerful, Sophronia L. transports readers back in time, to the American Civil War, and a sea-reliant community isolated by its independence and the disability of deafness. One woman in this silent world stands apart, both by her stunning beauty and a tragic past. But when she tries to right the wrongs in her life, she learns that not all signs, given or taken, are meant to be understood...or heard.

Beautifully referenced, historically illuminating, and eerily imaginative, Sophronia L. will hold your attention long after the last page is read.

5.0 van 5 sterren Love this book 12 december 2014
door Catherine E. Buck - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
This is an excellent book. Beautifully written, dark and poetic but often with a sly humor. Very well researched with respect to the history of Martha's Vineyard, the industry and tradition of whaling, and the general culture and politics of the time. All in all I really found it hard to put down. I would recommend it to fans of historical fiction, mysteries, thrillers, contemporary gothic, books about women's issues, sailing, whaling, and anyone who is simply looking for a good read.

5.0 van 5 sterren A dark seafaring mystery. 13 december 2014
door Bill - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
This book is a must read for anyone that enjoys a good historic fiction. It is beautifully written and well researched. The Island of Martha's Vineyard, both the whaling industry and native american culture in the mid 19th century, had it's share of mysteries. The story is based on actual events and it will pull you along to the unexpected conclusion. Melville would be proud.
