[NEW UPDATE] By the Book by Julia Sonneborn

Cari booklovers, 


anche oggi parliamo di libri in  inglese e lo faccia presentandovi il romanzo d'esordio di Julia Sonneborn, dal titolo "By the book".


Il libro è uscito il 6 febbraio scorso per la casa editrice americana Simon and Schuster,e si propone come una sorta di rivisitazione in chiave moderna di uno dei classici che io preferisco, "Persuasione" di Jane Austen.


La trama mi sembra molto interessante e l'autrice sta già lavorando a qualcosa di nuovo, noi la terremmo d'occhio ma soprattutto aspettiamo la traduzione in italiano di questo romanzo.


Come sempre vi aggiorno se ho delle novità!


Buona lettura!

Trama:


An English professor struggling for tenure discovers that her ex-fiancé has just become the president of her college—and her new boss—in this whip-smart modern retelling of Jane Austen’s classic Persuasion.


Anne Corey is about to get schooled.

An English professor in California, she’s determined to score a position on the coveted tenure track at her college. All she’s got to do is get a book deal, snag a promotion, and boom! She’s in. But then Adam Martinez—her first love and ex-fiancé—shows up as the college’s new president.

Anne should be able to keep herself distracted. After all, she’s got a book to write, an aging father to take care of, and a new romance developing with the college’s insanely hot writer-in-residence. But no matter where she turns, there’s Adam, as smart and sexy as ever. As the school year advances and her long-buried feelings begin to resurface, Anne begins to wonder whether she just might get a second chance at love.

Funny, smart, and full of heart, this modern ode to Jane Austen’s classic explores what happens when we run into the demons of our past...and when they turn out not to be so bad, after all.
