In Your Hands: #bookreview

In Your Hands by Ines Pedrosa and translated by Andrea Rosenberg looked like an interesting book. So I requested to get a copy. I must’ve said the magic word because my request was granted.

It follows the lives of three Portuguese women-Jenny, Camila, and Natalia- through collections of diaries and letters.

Jenny is married to Antonio who is really in a relationship with Pedro. They were married in 1935 so it was pretty uncommon to have a polyamorous marriage. Jenny was the third wheel – a wealthy third wheel. She stays married to Antonio even if it’s just for appearances. I would not be so calm about it. I don’t even think she has a guy on the side.

Camila is Pedro’s daughter from a one-night stand. Her birth mother left her with Pedro so she could fight the Nazis. Jenny raises her as her own daughter.

Natalia is Camila’s daughter with Xavier, an African soldier.

 

They all have their secrets. I can’t tell you all of them. You should read the book and find out for yourself.

The publication date is October 16, 2018. You can pre-order it on Amazon.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
