pdf ã The Art of Love À Elizabeth Edmondson Polly Smith está a tentar sobreviver enuanto artista uando Oliver seu amigo e mecenas a convida a ir para casa do pai no Sul de França Entusiasmada por poder fugir do frio e da chuva de Londres e do noivo monótono Polly pede a sua certidão de nascimento para poder reuerer um passaporte Mas é aí ue o se THE ART OF LOVE is a novel set in the early 1930s that reads like a mystery set in an enigma It begins in a part of London known as Bloomsbury where a young struggling artist Polly Smith is in the process of applying for a passport A friend of hers Oliver Fraddon had invited her to spend the Christmas holiday with his family in their palatial estate in the South of France But Polly in order to facilitate the process of getting a passport has to obtain her birth certificate This is when she learns that she wasn't the person she had been led to believe she was by her aunt who had been her guardian from birth Polly is in her early 20s making a living in a gallery through touching up 19th and early 20th century paintings adjudged previously as mediocre or of marginal marketability into salable assets and painting book covers freelance for a number of publishing companies She's also engaged to be married to Roger Harrington a doctor from an affluent family of doctors whose snobbishness is enough to make one gag Polly feels herself lucky to have met him And as for Roger one gets the distinct impression that Polly is something he can shape into the perfect doctor's wife once he can wring out of her what he regards as a frivolous pastime her passion for painting and for art Now I can understand if judging by the novel's title the reader of this review is inclined to look upon this book as nothing than a love story with the usual complicating factors to make it worthwhile to read Well there's much to THE ART OF LOVE than meets the eye There are also 3 other interconnected stories in the novel through a number of richly drawn out characters such as Cynthia Harkness a recent divorcee set on marrying her lover the tycoon and press magnate Sir Edward Malreward who has a dark side known only to a few; her brother Max Lytton who on the surface appears to be one of the idle rich but in truth has continued from WWI serving the government as an intelligence operative on the sly keeping tabs on people considered suspect by Whitehall; and the Fraddon family headed by Lord Fraddon Oliver's father who had to leave Britain years earlier under a cloud of scandal THE ART OF LOVE shapes itself into a thriller that slowly is brought to a boil on the French Riviera during the Yuletide with an amazing outcome to rival any Agatha Christie novel Reading this novel was both enthralling and entertaining It took me to a lot of interesting places and introduced me to some rather colorful characters I recommend THE ART OF LOVE to anyone who loves reading novels spiced with romance adventure and intrigue

The Art of LoveU mundo desaba auela ue sempre pensou ser sua mãe é na verdade sua tia; a identidade do pai é desconhecida e até o seu próprio nome não está correcto A sua “fuga” para o sol da estimulante da Riviera imprime uma nova vida à sua pintura mas nem tudo corre bem na mansão onde está hospedada O pai This book was originally published under the title 'The Art of Love' Polly Smith is struggling to make her living as an artist She paints book jackets and does some picture restoration for a small company and lives at home with her mother Dora Polly is invited to spend some time on the Riviera by her friend Oliver and it seems like a good idea to get away for a time but when Polly looks out her birth certificate in order to apply for a passport she finds she isn't who she thought she was even her name is differentI enjoyed this gentle story with its low key style and interesting characters I liked Polly especially as she comes out of her shell and becomes self confident She seems to flower in the Riviera sunshine as she battles to come to terms with who she is and to decide what exactly she wants to do with her lifeI listened to the audio book version of this story and it is ideal bed time listening I recommend it whether as a book to read or listen to if you want something relaxing and reasonably easy to read but with humour and interesting characters
