Brodsky Utkin oRd about this novel about 3 years agon Radio Four Neglecting to note down the title because I was driving I discovered it again by posting a uery Manuela Color Canela = Manuela, Color of Cinnamon on an historical fiction forum I mn Funnily enough I ended up reading it just after I d read a similar tale f piracy and women carried ff into captivity The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson Sadly this book wasn t in the same league as Johnson s novelThat s not to say that I didn t enjoy it because I did Hickman has clearly done her research because the tale is well written and richly described and unlike Why Not Call It Cow Juice other reviewers I thought it portrayed the claustrophobia creepinessf the Sultan s harem very well I thought that the story My Side of the Story of Celia Lamprey the heroine set in the 16th century worked very well What I felt the story lacked was a plausible modern day heroine For me she was uite two dimensional lacking depth and indeed likeability The manner in which her romantic feelings were described did not seem real to me If her part had been engaging I would have rated this book as a four star read35 starsut After the Flood of five Well worth reading Oh I couldn t give this book anythingther than a 5 star rating it has everything I enjoy in a great read An historical romance I ve put the romance in inverted commas because it s not a typical romance with a HEA but rather a romance in the victorian sense Open Secrets: Stories of the word Beautifully writen it captured my imagination right from the start I love this time period 16th Century but not from an Elizabethan angle infact I find that periodf English history uite boring no it s the Venetian and Ottoman settings I love I also love anything that includes Astronomy maths and mathematical instruments and this story is full Stop Bullying Me! of the stuff plus there s intrigue and mystery I also like stories which have an elementf reincarnation Maddie Inherits a Cowboy or sixth sense So this was ideal for me The Avairy Gate is beautifully written set in the Topkapi Harem Constantinople and Modern day Oxford and Istantbul it s a lovely story that spans the centuries From the begining I got a real feel for the characters both in the past and the modern day setting The intrigue that takes place within the harem is well put together some readers may well solve the intrigue but that really isn t the pointf the story it s not a murder mystery but rather an insight into the behaviours Still Alice of the women within the harem and how despite the tranuility and the rules it s really every woman for herself by fair meansr foul In the meantime Rasputin outside the harem walls another story develops and we see both sidesf the Royal Heirs Required overall story The modern partf the story pulled me into the centuries past story even futher I found myself not Hag's Nook only piecing the storyf the past together but also linking the characters from the past with those The Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare of the present day I loved the descriptionf Modern day Istanbul and how the author bought in historical settings to that modern world The author spent alot f time researching for her book and I appriciate all the details she included as they really drew me into both stories I just love this book and I m really looking forward to reading the next instalment Mystery History and Love

*as well katie *well Katie s research is very well done and there are many real people represented in the book as well as the fictional characters This is no The Beloved Scoundrel over the top sensationalized piecef fiction I will not give away the main thrust Downcanyon: A Naturalist Explores the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon of the story but definitely recommend the book as a well painted portraitf a different life I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be watching for future books from this author I am so bloody disappointed By the ending I mean that poem that Celia leaves to Anetta could have been from before she went to see Paul that night Or indeed it could have been from later Il Barça on after having come to the conclusion she would have never seen him ever againAnyway the novel was interestingverall I got to envisage a picture Italian Phrase Book of Istanbul that I loved and it made me want to visit it for real But the ending good God the ending Why choose such an ending to a 500 pages novel at least in Romanian it was that lengthy I hate Katie Hickman pretty much right now For making me desiref Mehmet se n scenes and by this I mean Elizabeth s Mehmet not Indar è un ricco mercante in missione per conto della Regina d'Inghilterra Ha il compito di portare al sultano un regalo uno splendido Lovesong (Green Creek orologio musicale Ma mentre procedono i negoziati la sua attenzione viene attratta da una voce sempre più insistente Si dice che nell'harem ci sia una nuova schiava una donna daglicchi azzurri e dalla pelle di luna Che sia Celia

Ma penetrare nelle stanze proibite del palazzo reale è uasi impossibile The Aviary Gate by Kate Hickman is a lush narrative that reaches back into the sultan s harem f Constantinople 1599 to relate a bittersweet story f loyalty love and loss Elizabeth is a modern day grad student at Oxford entangled with a rake and researching captivity narratives for a bid at an MPhil She stumbles upon some clues that suggest an Englishwoman named Celia Lamprey survived a shipwreck in the late 1500s nly to be sold as a slave into the Ottoman sultan s harem Elizabeth s uest to learn about the fate Kelttiläistarinoita of Celia and to disentangle herself from herwn emotional enslavement to a man who doesn t deserve her takes her from Oxford to Istanbul and while definitive proof can rarely survive four hundred years sometimes history can reach ut and speak to you The Aviary Gate goes back and forth between a few months in Elizabeth s present day story and a few days in Celia s narrative While ne might picture luxury and decadence in the harem Hickman focuses Uomini ad Auschwitz: Storia del più famigerato campo di sterminio nazista on the lies and secrecy that permeate what is essentially a cage for the many women kept at the beck and callf a single sultan I suppose it s not surprising to suggest that women have been catty for centuries but it s particularly apparent in a story that features such treachery and backstabbing as women vie to become the Haseki Roma Noir or favorite concubinef the sultan There is also the possibility for incredible loyalty between individuals but that pales in comparison to the terrible bits When Celia learns that her A History of the Crusades, Volumes I, II and III (Boxed Set) old fiancee Paul Pindar is in Constantinople and might be awaref the fact that she survived the shipwreck well it puts her Love is the Enemy on a desperately hopeful track that ruins any chance she hadf embracing the life she s been given in the harem Hickman keeps the reader Exhalation on the edgef her seat wondering if there s any chance that this story might have a happy ending and ultimately she produces a novel whose strength is in the historical details if not the character relationshipsAt Galileo one point in the novel a Turkish academic asks a rather perfectly apt uestionf Elizabeth What is this western Oglinda salvata obsession with harems Clearly the allure is for the sensual aspects which the novel seems to savor at the beginning but Hickman uickly veers away from such as complications arise While Elizabeth s love life takes a turn for the better she forgets the ass back home and meets up with a desirable Turkish man Celia has been steadily dipping into a lossf hope as she clings to a simple desire f seeing Paul ne last time even if he cannot save her Hickman really does paint a vivid picture Nemico of the Ottoman Empire and the possible livesf women who were lost to the sultan s harem It s not surprising that an author noted for her nonfiction work would take such care to thoroughly research the period but all the effort is uite clear The shift from risue to bittersweet was a bit rough though and I found it to be disappointing as though Hickman wanted to provide some salacious r frightening bits but truly wanted to tell a tragic love story too which left things feeling a bit lopsided There s no
