UN ESTATE PER SEMPRE
Amici inseparabili durante tutti gli anni dell'università, Eva, Benedict, Sylvie e Lucien si laureano a Bristol nel 1997, in un mondo carico di promesse che si affaccia sul nuovo Millennio. Innamorata dell'inafferrabile playboy Lucien e desiderosa di lasciarsi alle spalle un'educazione austera e opprimente, Eva si trasferisce a Londra per lavorare in un'importante banca. Benedict invece rimane all'università per finire il dottorato in fisica, struggendosi segretamente d'amore per lei, mentre i fratelli Sylvie e Lucien adottano uno stile di vita più bohémien dedicandosi all'arte, ai viaggi e alle avventure. Gli anni passano e i quattro amici si accorgono che le loro strade sono sempre più distanti e che per ognuno di loro non è facile continuare a inseguire i sogni di un tempo. Convinti di non riuscire più a essere artefici dei loro destini, sentono di avere ancora bisogno l'uno dell'altro. Amori infranti e carriere finite in maniera disastrosa li riavvicineranno, ma in modi che non avrebbero mai potuto immaginare... "Un'estate per sempre" è la storia di quello che succede quando tra i sogni della giovinezza irrompe la vita vera, un'illuminante rappresentazione degli alti e bassi che tutti noi ci troviamo ad affrontare quando entriamo nell'età adulta. Ma è soprattutto una celebrazione dell'amicizia come valore cardine su cui fondare le nostre vite: un rifugio sicuro che è anche un motore propulsivo, un centro di gravità permanente in un mondo in perenne mutamento. 🌸lo leggerò e farò la mia recensione @chi79ara 🌸ringrazio @libri_e_libri per il giveaway 🌸leggere leggere leggere

Alice Adams‘ Als wir unbesiegbar waren 📖.
Ich hatte wenig Lust auf das Buch und hab es in meinem Bücherstapel immer wieder ganz nach unten gelegt. Jetzt bin ich aber ganz begeistert und freu mich schon wieder auf‘s Weiterlesen. Es geht um vier Studienfreunde und darum, wie sich ihre Freundschaft und ihre Leben in den Jahren nach dem Studium entwickeln. Ich kann es empfehlen 👍🏼. Und dazu haben wir heute auch noch perfektes Lesewetter 🌪🌧 #aliceadams #alswirunbesiegbarwaren #dumont #roman #empfehlenswert #lesen #neuesbuch #bücherstapel #lesewetter #herbst #sturm #lesezeit #erholung #imgartenräumichspäterauf #unserlaubistauchentsorgt #habenesgroßzügigindernachbarschaftverteilt #soeinsturmhatauchwasgutes 😉

I love Saturdays in the Fall! Paying tribute today to one of my favorites, Alice Adams. Katharine Hepburn knocked it out of the park with this performance as the working class girl desperate to fit in with the upper crust. Fred MacMurray was, as always, gorgeous as Alice's rich suitor who finds in the end that he loves her regardless of her station in life. Beautiful film~ #katharinehepburn #fredmacmurray #aliceadams #classiccinema #silverscreen #cinemasatisfaction #melodrama #romance #hoorayforhollywood

In 1935 the days the women would have the power and the place that by right and effort corresponds to her, were still far away, but in this film we can see that the woman is a soul awake, intelligent and ready to face challenges for what she loves: her family, her love and her projects. Of course, the presence of Hepburn was an effective combination #AliceAdams #GeorgeStevens #KatharineHepburn #FredMacMurray #HattieMcDaniel #Films #Movies #Cine #Películas #Cinema #RKORadioPictures #1935 #TheThrillingCinema

The second book option for our July "Summer Lovin'" box is Invincible Summer by Alice Adams!

Inseparable throughout college, Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien graduate in 1997, into an exhilarating world on the brink of a new millennium. Hopelessly in love with playboy Lucien and eager to shrug off the socialist politics of her upbringing, Eva breaks away to work for a big bank. Benedict, a budding scientist who's pined for Eva for years, stays on to complete his PhD in physics, devoting his life to chasing particles as elusive as the object of his affection.
Siblings Sylvie and Lucien, never much inclined toward mortgages or monogamy, pursue more bohemian existences-she as an aspiring artist and he as a club promoter and professional partyer.

But as their twenties give way to their thirties, the group struggles to navigate their thwarted dreams. Scattered across Europe and no longer convinced they are truly the masters of their fates, the once close-knit friends find themselves filled with longing for their youth- and for one another. Broken hearts and broken careers draw the foursome together again, but in ways they never could have imagined.

A dazzling depiction of the highs and lows of adulthood, Invincible Summer is a story about finding the courage to carry on in the wake of disappointment, and a powerful testament to love and friendship as the constants in an ever-changing world.
