about this item

Puede que la clave de la felicidad siempre haya estado allí...

Una novela de la autora de Yo antes de ti.

Suzanna Peacock no está conforme con su vida. Debería sentirse querida por su familia, pero se considera discriminada, está insatisfecha. Todo porque su madre biológica la dejó al cuidado de su padre poco antes de morir. También su marido la adora, pero ella no es capaz de corresponderle. Y no quiere vivir en la pequeña ciudad donde se crió. Echa de menos Londres.

Para ocupar su tiempo y calmar su frustración, Suzanna decide abrir un comercio, Emporio Peacock. Desde este momento, su vida empezará a cambiar. Los que frecuentan la tienda se convierten en amigos, y uno en particular, Alejandro, se acerca a ella como nadie lo había hecho nunca.

Reseña:
«Jojo Moyes posee un talento sin igual para escribir sobre la vida diaria de una manera cálida pero también divertida; consigue romperte el corazón para después hacer que vuelvas a creer en el amor.»
Sunday Express

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In the Sixties, Athene Forster is the most glamorous girl of her generation. Nicknamed the Last Deb, she is also beautiful, spoilt and out of control. When she agrees to marry dashing young heir Douglas Fairley-Hulme her parents breathe a sigh of relief. But within two years, rumours have begun to circulate about Athene's affair with a young salesman. Thirty five years on, Suzanna Peacock is struggling with her glamorous mother's legacy. The only place she finds comfort is in her shop, The Peacock Emporium, a coffee shop-******-curio store, decorated in her own image, which provides a haven for other misfits in the town. There she makes perhaps the first real friends of her life, including Alejandro, a male midwife, escaping his own ghosts in Argentina. But the spectre of Athene and the shop itself combine to set in place a chain of tragic events, forcing Suzanna to confront the feelings she has disguised for so long - and her family, in their varying ways, finally to deal with the events of the past. And Suzanna discovers the key to her history, and her happiness, may have been in front of her all along.
