Pressestimmen

“Stretching over more than three decades, it’s a gripping tale of stubborn love, the legacy of domestic violence, and the family secrets children keep. A noir element crops up, too.” (Boston Globe)

“Set against the coast of Provincetown, Patry Francis’s fierce, ravishing epic cuts deep to the bone about how love binds us together and breaks us apart, and how the past’s thumbprint rests on the present. Tender, violent, and alive, it’s also unforgettable.” (Caroline Leavitt, New York Times-bestselling author of Pictures of You)

“Patry Francis has written the sort of sprawling, Dickensian novel that readers long for in this post-modern age….The Orphans of Race Point has a breakneck pace, engaging characters, and a vividly rendered setting.” (Providence Journal)

“a Dickensian story….Its themes of passionate treachery and abiding love play out in sometimes heartbreaking ways. Recommend to readers wondering what to read after The Goldfinch.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“…this beautifully wrought novel is a sometimes wrenching but ultimately uplifting story of murder and betrayal in the face of faith, family in its truest sense, and—most of all—love.” (Booklist (starred review))

“This talented author engages our emotions and her descriptions are impeccable, and moving…it’s a joy to read a novel that’s expertly crafted right to the very end (Barnstable Patriot)

“This is a long book for a teen to tackle, but for those who relish a story of love and struggle and enjoy a good saga, this is a great recommendation.” (School Library Journal)

“…a sweeping family drama with its inherent mysteries and secrets…readers will be absorbed by the tragedies that push the story along, and the often engaging voice.” (Romantic Times)

“In The Orphans of Race Point, Patry Francis has poured a lifetime of wisdom into a thrilling, twisting plot, which holds up the human heart as a prism, turning it to show its many facets, its shadows and light.” (Susan Henderson, author of Up from the Blue)

“Stunning psychological suspense which poses the eternal question: how well can you know the people you love? This is riveting, bite-your-nails reading and the arrival of a great new talent.” (Lee Child on The Liar's Diary)

“A twisting ride full of dangerous curves and jaw-dropping surprises. This is one of my favorite reads of the year!” (Tess Gerritsen on The Liar's Diary)

“Twists and turns but never lets go.” (Jacquelyn Mitchard on The Liar's Diary)

“Outright chilling.” (Daily News on The Liar's Diary)

“Genuinely creepy . . . The unlikely friendship between a small-town school secretary and a flamboyant teacher proves deadly in this psychological murder mystery.” (Kirkus Reviews on The Liar's Diary)

“A quirky, well-written and well-constructed mystery with an edge.” (Publishers Weekly on The Liar's Diary)

Buchrückseite

When a horrific act of violence shatters the peaceful October night in Provincetown, Massachusetts, the fates of nine-year-olds Gus Silva and Hallie Costa become inextricably entwined. Told in alternating voices, The Orphans of Race Point traces their relationship over the next three decades as they try to come to terms with the past. What begins as a childhood friendship evolves into something stronger, but when a terrible tragedy exhumes the ghosts they thought they'd put to rest, their dreams are abruptly destroyed.

Hallie and Gus move forward to build separate lives, but Gus's hard-won peace is threatened when he meets a troubled woman who awakens memories of the childhood he has worked so hard to forget. Although helping her offers him a chance at the redemption he desperately desires, it will come at a devastating price. Turning around an unthinkable betrayal, this epic, all-consuming novel explores how far we will go for love, even if it means sacrificing everything—and in doing so, celebrates our capacity for faith, forgiveness, and hope.

Eigentlich ...
... hat das Buch alles, was ein Buch haben muss. Es ist meiner Ansicht nach auch gut geschrieben, die Figuren sind gut gezeichnet, das Setting interessant.
Und dennoch ...
... habe ich nach ungefähr 30 % auf meinem Reader mit Lesen aufgehört. Ich habe mich gelangweilt. Und das tue ich mir nicht an.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Poignant, beautiful story 23. Juni 2014
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished "The Orphans of Race Point" this evening and I am still processing it. I do know I loved it and the tale of Gus, Hallie and Neil as well as all of the other characters had me enthralled from the first page.

I am not sure what to say, other than, "READ IT". Other reviewers have summarized the story line, so I won't. I found myself emotionally charged a number of times during the book. It was a beautiful, but painful story to read. I don't think anyone will be disappointed by the spectacular writing.

I will be checking out other works by this author and definitely telling my friends and family about it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intricate, Well-written Plot 11. Januar 2016
Von Nanjio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is an epic novel following the lives of several people in Provincetown, Cape Cod, a tight-knit community where the year-round residents all know each other. The three main characters are brought together in their youth by a tragedy. Just before their high school graduation a violent event breaks them apart. They go their separate ways, pursuing careers away from Provincetown but are forever bound by their shared community roots. As adults their paths frequently cross when they return to the Cape. Then one of the three is accused of murder and the community is quick to judge him based on long-ago events. The reader knows the accused is innocent but the facts of the incident remain a mystery until the ending chapters.

This is an engrossing well-written novel in which the reader can't help but become involved with the characters. The murder-mystery plot is perhaps a bit far-fetched, but the author makes it seem plausible. I very much enjoyed this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unexpected ! 24. Mai 2014
Von melissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book was definitely unexpected for me on a couple of levels. First was that I did not expect to like it as much as I did! I was looking for a book that was different from what I had been reading.(I had gotten into reading thrillers one after another!)
I was ambivalent about this book, but chose it because I love the Provincetown area and the small blurb I read sounded sort of intriguing..
I was surprised to immediately fall in love with the characters, and to find that I just didn't want to stop reading , even well past my bedtime! Patry Francis has created characters that are like the most interesting people you would want to know.Since half of my family is Portuguese I can tell you that she definitely captured the "flavor" of the Portuguese people.
I will not write a synopsis of the plot, because many others have already done that quite well.
I will say that the ending was another unexpected thing for me. I did not see it coming at all, which is usually not the case. Huge kudos for that!
I liked this book so much, that I am buying a copy for a friend who I know will love it!
I have one little nit-picky thing to mention, which doesn't affect the rating, and probably isn't the author's fault. On a couple of occasions they mention eating chorizo. Chorizo is a Spanish sausage not Portuguese. The sausage they would have been using would have been Chourico. They really are not the same at all, and since she got all the other Portuguese foods right, linguica, malasadas etc) I think it may have been an editorial thing.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Well-titled - one to remember. 3. August 2016
Von samwan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I liked it, and then I didn't like it. It does read like a YA novel and yet I kept on wanting to see if it would develop into something deeper. I was engaged by the relationship between Hallie and Gus and liked Dr. Nick and Wolf. Much was rather unbelievable, like no one knowing Wolf had a son and there didn't seem to be any reason for the son to even come into the story. Hallie could have married anyone for all the forward progress that part made. What happened to the painting left to Hallie? I wanted to see/feel her reaction to it. When we got to the prison scenes, though, I almost threw it away. As someone who has visited men sentenced to life without parole, those scenes were completely unrealistic. The guards, in my experience, would never have been rude or insensitive to Mila; she would not have been permitted inside the prison in clothing that left nothing to the imagination; she would not have been permitted to take her purse inside either. So many things were just wrong with those scenes. Still I kept on and toward the end I did weep some. Mila finding out what family really means. The painting of the scenes was actually incredible. The deep feelings of some of the characters was also well written. This author has great potential. For all that I didn't like about the book, this is a story that will stay with me - well-titled.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A rare novel 24. September 2015
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A rare novel, the development of character and emotion is flawless. The goodness and depth of pure love measured against a selfish imitation that takes without thought of the pain and loss felt by others. Overwhelming Christ like love and forgiveness in the face of brutality. You feel the purity and pain knowing it's more than yo
u have to give. Patry Francis takes you beyond what you are, showing you what is possible. A must read.
