Distant music by Lee Langley( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distant Music begins in 1429 on Madeira, an island consumed by a fire that has blazed for seven years. A young peasant girl, Esperanca, meets Emanuel, a Jewish boy on shore from a Portuguese sailing ship. The courtship blossoms when he teaches her to read, but they know they must separate when the ship leaves. From that first meeting and parting, others flow across six centuries: each life is short and the couple faces peril, tenderness, and horror. What survives is love, the ache of longing, the awareness of something lost, the immensity of distance, and the fragility of human bonds

"Collector, adventurer and artist, Vivant Denon was a youthful courtier at Versailles; he lived through the French Revolution, and galloped across Egypt with Bonaparte. A skilled survivor, he knew everyone - Marie-Antoinette, Voltaire, Robespierre, Catherine the Great, the artists of the day, Boucher and David. He found world fame without seeking it, risking his life and happiness in an endless quest, a love affair with art." "Taking a real historical figure, his extraordinary life, his passions, his friendship with Napoleon, the Venetian contessa who was his great love, Lee Langley has created a vast, rich canvas that captures the dying grandeur of Venice, the battle of the Nile, a dazzling liaison dangereuse, bringing to life the sweep of the period alongside a tender and intimate story."--BOOK JACKET
