Read full description of the books Verde oscurità:Nel 1960 Celia Taylor è una giovane ereditiera americana che, dopo aver sposato l’aristocratico inglese Richard Marsdon, decide di andare a vivere nell’antico maniero dei Marsdon nel Sussex, in Inghilterra. Il tempo di sistemarsi in un’ala del castello che bizzarri fenomeni cominciano ad accadere. Richard si comporta in una maniera decisamente fuori dell’ordinario e Celia comincia a soffrire di strani accessi di follia e visioni. Lily Taylor, la madre di Celia, chiede allora aiuto al dottor Akananda, un guru indiano suo amico, che scopre quello che non va nella giovane coppia. Le angustie del presente possono essere superate solo ponendo fine a una tragedia accaduta in un lontanissimo passato. Precisamente quattro secoli prima, quando in Inghilterra regnava Edoardo VI, e la giovane affascinante Celia de Bohun si innamorò del cappellano Stephen Marsdon, che spasimava ardentemente per lei, ma non voleva rompere il suo voto di castità. Pieno di misticismo, suspense, mistero e amore, Verde oscurità è un romanzo indimenticabile che continua a essere una delle opere più vendute in Inghilterra e negli Stati Uniti.
Read information about the authorAnya Seton (January 23, 1904 (although the year is often misstated to be 1906 or 1916) - November 8, 1990) was the pen name of the American author of historical romances, Ann Seton.
Ann Seton was born in New York, New York, and died in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. She was the daughter of English-born naturalist and pioneer of the Boy Scouts of America, Ernest Thompson Seton and Grace Gallatin Seton-Thompson. She is interred at Putnam Cemetery in Greenwich.
Her historical novels were noted for how extensively she researched the historical facts, and some of them were best-sellers. Dragonwyck (1941) and Foxfire (1950) were both made into Hollywood films. Two of her books are classics in their genre and continue in their popularity to the present; Katherine, the story of Katherine Swynford, the mistress and eventual wife of John of Gaunt, and their children, who eventually became the basis for the Tudor and Stuart families of England, and Green Darkness, the story of a modern couple plagued by their past life incarnations. Most of her novels have been recently republished, several with forewords by Philippa Gregory.
Her novel Devil Water concerns James, the luckless Earl of Derwentwater and his involvement with the Jacobite rising of 1715. She also narrates the story of his brother Charles, beheaded after the 1745 rebellion, the last man to die for the cause. The action of the novel moves back and forth between Northumberland, Tyneside, London and America.
Anya Seton stated that the book developed out of her love for Northumberland. Anya certainly visited her Snowdon cousins at Felton. Billy Pigg, the celebrated Northumbrian piper played 'Derwentwater's Farewell' especially for her. The novel shows her typical thorough research of events and places, though the accents are a little wayward. Anya Seton said that her greatest debt of all was to Miss Amy Flagg of Westoe Village in South Shields, her father's birthplace.
