      Sem sombra de dúvida este livro arrebata-me até ao mais íntimo do meu ser. Devo ser uma romântica incurável (coisa que pensei nunca vir a admitir).Deborah Smith escreve e cativa-me instantaneamente. Para mim, dentro deste género e com o que vou conhecendo, Deborah ganha aos pontos os restantes escritores. Escreve sobre a família duma maneira que nunca li, escreve sobre sentimentos da maneira mais sincera e profunda, escreve sobre determinação, objectivos alcançados e outros desfeitos, [...]

      QUIT COMPARING THIS TO _SWEET GUM TREE._I swear. So many reviewers are holding this book in disdainful comparison to Allred's novel, yet no one seems to note that Smith's version came out almost a decade before _Sweet Gum Tree_. I won't say that Allred ripped Smith off, but I'll say that I'm pretty miffed at everyone acting like Smith's book is the carbon copy of Allred's. I think she's an amazing storyteller (no, I don't know her personally) but I have yet to meet any novelist who is able to pl [...]

      É uma obra que agrada. Agrada a quem aprecia narrativas carregadas de laços familiares, de relações, de vidas unidas e separadas por sentimentos, afinidades, tradições, preconceitos e de uma vontade férrea de pertencer a algo ou a alguém. E obviamente agrada a quem anseia por uma bonita história de amor, com força suficiente para superar qualquer obstáculo com que se depare.RecomendoTA – 08/10Opinião completa em:osabordosmeuslivros.p

      Though very well written, it had way too little story for its number of pages.*And what was with all that focus on some random people I didn't care about?

      3.75 stars for the book; 3 stars for the audio.In many scenes comparable to The Sweet Gum Tree, this is angsty women's fiction or chick-lit focused on family drama in an Irish community in Georgia. Fierce childhood devotion becomes adult passion, but the developing romance often takes a back seat to the family drama. The story is told in two equally divided parts, spanning 25 years, from about 1970 to 1995. It's told in 1st person by the heroine, first as a little girl, then as an adult, with so [...]

      Actual Rating 2.5 THIS IS A RANTI read this book on a hunch really (I am not even sure if that's the right way to put it) and honestly it just didn't pan out. I just wanted a little light/fun romance to balance out the other 4 books I was reading at the moment. So there are two parts to the book, the first part-the past and the second-the present. The past was perfect. I really thought I was on to something and that I had made a good choice when I decided to read the book. The portrayal of this [...]

      Quem é que não gosta de uma história de amor reencontrado? Daquele tipo de amor que é para toda a vida? Eu não gosto… eu adoro! Especialmente se for bem trabalhado, de forma a que seja uma história sólida e consistente.Claire e Roan conheceram-se em crianças. Pertenciam famílias de classes sociais diametralmente opostas. Mas isso não os impede de se tornarem amigos e gostarem verdadeiramente um do outro. Por mais que tente colocar por palavras a relação deles, mesmo em crianças, a [...]

      I found it difficult to rate this book and I'm not even sure why. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I can't even describe how I feel about this book, or maybe, it's because it left me hallow in some ways. I don't know, the only thing I can say is that this book was just it just was.Overall, I have to give it a two star rating because of two things. Was this worth a read? And, would I recommend this book to someone else? The answer is no on both counts. There was nothing magical and spell bin [...]

      Sou super fã da Deborah Smith, pelo que este é o quarto livro que leio da autora. Comecei a lê-la numa idade bem tenra, em que “A Doçura da Chuva” me surpreendeu pela profundidade e complexidade das personagens. Depois avancei para “O Café do Amor”, em que uma mulher muito bonita e muito ferida regressava a casa para se reconciliar com a vida. De seguida, e de longe o meu favorito, li “Milagre”, onde a autora criou um amor devastador entre o casal protagonista, das vinhas da Cal [...]

      I read this because I heard about the similarities to Sweet Gum Tree and wanted to compare the two stories for myself. Even though the premise was extremely similar, the characters were distinct and the direction the stories took after the childhood-sweethearts-stage was different.Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the first section of this story (I love the Southern small town setting!), the book dragged for me when Roan and Claire reunited as adults. I wasn't especially interested in the hundreds [...]

      I tend to gravitate toward romantic comedy which often requires a bit more suspension of disbelief. This book is more "real world" but it's a romance nonetheless.I loved the first half of the book, most of which takes place when Claire is nine. Her viewpoint is so consistent with a child her age that it's awesome, but part of what makes it so good, I think, is knowing that the story will finish with the characters as adults. I love the message of the book as well that one person can change the l [...]

      I love the mature writing in this story. We get hues of a rich history and culture back-lighted by a youthful loyalty come romance between the H/h. This book is more about that history and culture than the romance, per se, but I'm only interested in that history and culture as it relates to the romance. I doubt I would have bought into the harshness of the H's character had I not had the background laid out so thoroughly. This is damn fine writing.I read Sweet Gum Tree first and this book was am [...]

      I randomly picked up this book at the library and I loved it. I was so drawn to both Claire and Roan's character from the very beginning as I saw their relationship throughout their childhood to adulthood. The first part of the book was so captivating and emotional. I couldn't put it down. Claire is so determined to help save Roanie Sullivan, despite his unfortunate luck of being born into the wrong family. The two of them are young children and share the kind of love that is unique between the [...]

      Estive mesmo para desistir desta leitura, muito por culpa da primeira parte do livro. A meu ver, é algo morosa e confusa (as personagens também são imensas, logo não ajuda muito), o que me retirou algum interesse. Serve de preâmbulo para a segunda parte, mas creio que poderia ser melhor conseguida.Chego à segunda parte e a leitura tornou-se quase compulsiva, tal é o desfilar de emoções que a mesma nos transmite. De repente, tudo se encaixa com uma beleza, com um altruísmo fora do comum [...]

      Mais um livro maravilhoso desta autora! Fiquei extasiada com a história da Claire e do Roan e mais ainda com o facto de podermos acompanhar todo o percurso deles enquanto crianças e mais tarde o desenrolar de tudoUma história com ângulos diferentes e com várias personagens com nuances estranhas! Fartei-me de rir com as Avozinhas e fartei-me de chorar com a tragédia do Roan!Um livro soberbo uma vez mais vez! Estou fã!

      Adoro este livro!! Já faz parte de um dos meus favoritos de sempre!Gostei muito da escrita de Deborah Smith: fluída, concisa e muito rica em detalhes. A história é arrebatadora, envolvente e comovente. O livro apodera-se de nós (é muito difícil largá-lo), sofremos com os personagens, choramos e rimos, é impossível ficar indiferente.Numa palavra: MARAVILHOSO!

      O primeiro livro que li da autora foi a Doçura da Chuva cativou-me pela forma da sua escrita melodiosa, cuidada, fluida, simples, contagiante e criativa. Uma leitura doce, encantadora e memorável. Fiquei fã da autora, por isso ao pegar neste livro as minhas expectativas estavam altas demais.Foi uma leitura compulsiva, envolvente, cativante, deliciosa, mágica, comovente e suave que nos conta a história de um amor inocente entre Claire e Roan dois amigos de infância que após um terrível ac [...]

      Depois de este ano já ter lido "A Doçura da Chuva" resolvi pegar no livro com algumas expectativas pois é um dos livros preferidos da Cata do Páginas Encadernadas. Contada do ponto de vista de Claire Maloney vamos ficar a conhecer sua história bem como a de Roanie Sullivan, num primeiro momento enquanto são crianças, e numa segunda fase 20 anos depois.Enquanto Claire vem de uma grande e rica família, Roanie é pobre e vive à margem com um pai negligente e mau; mas Claire consegue ver pa [...]

      This book was a lovely, complex read. It is hard for me to find romance stories that I can actually get past the first couple of pages; for every one I pick up, I've put down ten others. Nevertheless, I really enjoy the good ones so I keep looking for those jewels among the dross. Deborah Smith's novel "A Place To Call Home" was everything I look for in this type of book: a rich, intelligently developed plot peopled with characters who are not only interesting but don't do ridiculous things mere [...]

      Another rare creature: a romance novel that's genuinely good. Oddly, it's the lead-up, not the actual romance between the adult characters in the somewhat hasty and strange last quarter of the book, that caught me. I've always felt when you buy a romance novel, you should get a romance novel; I loathe romances that focus so much on the dramatic setting or murder mystery you hardly notice the romance. But in this novel, I felt the reverse.The story is at its best at the start, when the plucky 5-y [...]

      The first half of this book is incredible. I devoured it in less than a day. Claire, the main character, was truly charming and likeable as a child and her relationship with Roan was great to discover. My only complaint was a theme that ended up occurring throughout the book: there were so many side characters. She has so many Aunt So-and-So and Grandma This-and-That that you can't possibly keep track of who is who. The second half, while still well written, caused me to absolutely loathe Claire [...]

      Not fair of me to rate this, as I don't really like the genre - I read it because it was around the house. My favorite part is always the set up, when we are getting to know the quirky heroine and how she is so clumsy around the romantic target. Then there's some event that separates them, and after that the characters, especially the man, become completely two-dimensional. Also, everyone is ridiculously noble, and then everything resolves perfectly - an insult to real relationships. I give this [...]

      Gostei muito da primeira parte deste livro: memórias de uma infância mimada de uma garota cheia de irmãos, com uma grande família descendente de irlandeses, numa vila e numa casa cheias de ambiente, cujo grande afeto se dirige a um pobre rapaz que vive ao abandono. Há segredos, há mentiras e há sobressaltos. Depois, há uma prolepse, a miúda tornou-se adulta e parte da magia trazida pelos encantamentos de infância desaparece, até porque há coisas um bocado mal contadas e situações, [...]
