Barcellona XIV secolo Nel cuore dell'umile uartiere della Ribera gli occhi curiosi del piccolo Arnau sono catturati dalle maestose mura di una grande chiesa in costruzione Un incontro decisivo poiché la storia di Santa Maria del Mar sarà il cardine delle tormentate vicende della sua esistenza Figlio di un servo fuggiasco nella capitale catalana Arnau trova rifugio e uella sospirata lib It is very important to know when you start this book that it is in fact based on the Chronica of King Pedro III Although historical fiction it closely follows true events in Catalonia during the 1300s under King Pedro s reign There is tons of history incorporated into the novel At the same time it has an engaging and fast moving plot You will learn about Barcelona the building of the cathedral Sant Maria de la Mar You will be impressed by the cathedral s history its beauty and how it engaged the life of so many in Barcelona It was built for and by the people of Barcelona All its people It was built at the site of an older church and underneath it is an ancient Roman cemetery However the book and the plot covers many many other actual events wars the bubonic plague the Inuisition guild practices treatment of women and Jews in fact all aspects of life in Barcelona during the 1300s this book is a perfect example of how historical fiction can teach in a delightful engrossing manner There is a author s note that clearly explains what is fiction and what is fact The events that have been altered are pointed out What is amazing is that what seems fiction is fact I wish I had read it in the middle of the novel rather than at the end So why only three stars I know that for me to say I like the book feels appropriate than to say I really liked it This is because I never really attached my self to the characters The book is concerned with the unrolling of the plot than character analysis Each character plays a significant role there are none that could have been eliminated Each character was rounded and well thought out but maybe the fact that all was so well planned that there were few bizarre elements that it simply felt a bit boring I do not mean the plot was boring that was rolling along at full speed continually In fact it felt a bit cinematicSo this book provides great history in an engaging story but without much sparkle I am very glad I read it I learned so very very much Did you know that the Inuisition began very early in Catalonia Dis you know that people were trading and profiting from the buying and selling of different currencies in the 1300s Did you know that when two serfs were married the master had the right to sleep with the woman first on the night of their marriage You will not regret reading this book Daisy Malone and the Blue Glowing
