Castle Dor (du Maurier Daphne):
Autor a popis:
A masterful recreation of the legend of Tristan and Iseult, set in 19th century Cornwall.
Both a spellbinding love story and a superb evocation of Cornwall`s mythic past, Castle Dor is a book with unique and fascinating origins.
It began life as the unfinished last novel of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, the celebrated `Q`, and was passed by his daughter to Daphne du Maurier whose storytelling skills were perfectly suited to the task of completing the old master`s tale.
The result is this magical, compelling recreation of the legend of Tristan and Iseult, transplanted in time to the Cornwall of the last century. A chance encounter between the Breton onion-seller, Amyot Trestane, and the newly-wed Linnet Lewarne launches their tragic story, taking them in the fateful footsteps of the doomed lovers of Cornish legend . . .
