Read full description of the books Jardim de Alfazema:Jocelyne Minton é uma mulher dividida entre dois mundos. A mãe estudou em colégios particulares e frequentava as melhores salas de chá, mas acabou por casar com o biscateiro local.
Joce tinha apenas cinco anos quando a mãe morreu e, quando o pai volta a casar, a criança sente-se mais só do que nunca - até que conhece Edilean Harcourt que, apesar de já não ser uma jovem, compreende Joce melhor que ninguém.
Quando Miss Edi morre, deixa à amiga todos os seus bens, incluindo uma histórica mansão do século XVIII e uma carta com pistas para a jovem decifrar um mistério que remonta a 1941. Na carta, Miss Edi também revela que encontrou o homem perfeito para Joce, um jovem advogado. Joce fica chocada ao saber que a mansão e o futuro amor da sua vida se encontram em Edilean, de que nunca ouvira falar. Curiosa perante esta reviravolta do destino, Joce muda-se para a pequena cidade , decidida a dar um novo rumo à sua vida.
Em Edilean, todos conhecem a história da jovem e já delinearam o seu futuro, incluindo o homem com quem se deverá casar. Acontece, porém, que Joce tem as suas próprias ideias acerca do homem que terá de conquistar o seu coração e o que fazer aos segredos que ninguém quer ver divulgados. Mas, quando estes lhe revelam parte da sua história, o certo é que a vida parece ganhar uma nova cor…
Em Jardim de Alfazema, Jude Deveraux retrata as paixões, as intrigas e os segredos de uma pequena cidade e dá início a uma extraordinária série centrada em Edilean.
Read information about the authorJude Gilliam was born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky. She has a large extended family and is the elder sister of four brothers. She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art. In 1967, Jude married and took her husband's surname of White, but four years later they divorced. For years, she worked as 5th-grade teacher.
She began writing in 1976, and published her first book, The Enchanted Land (1977) under the name Jude Deveraux. Following the publication of her first novel, she resigned her teaching position. Now, she is the author of 31 New York Times bestsellers.
Jude won readers' hearts with the epic Velvet series, which revolves around the lives of the Montgomery family's irresistible men. Jude's early books are set largely in 15th- and 16th-century England; in them her fierce, impassioned protagonists find themselves in the midst of blood feuds and wars. Her heroines are equally scrappy -- medieval Scarlett O'Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over. They're fighters, certainly, but they're also beauties who are preoccupied with survival and family preservation.
Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results. Her James River trilogy (River Lady, Lost Lady, and Counterfeit Lady) is set mostly in post-Revolution America; the popular, softer-edged Twin of Fire/Twin of Ice moves to 19th-century Colorado and introduces another hunky-man clan, the Taggerts.
Deveraux manages to evoke a strong and convincing atmosphere for each of her books, but her dialogue and characters are as familiar as a modern-day soap opera's. "Historicals seem to be all I'm capable of," Jude once said in an interview, referring to a now out-of-print attempt at contemporary fiction, 1982's Casa Grande. "I don't want to write family sagas or occult books, and I have no intention of again trying to ruin the contemporary market." Still, Jude did later attempt modern-day romances, such as the lighthearted High Tide (her first murder caper), the contemporary female friendship story The Summerhouse, and the time-traveling Knight in Shining Armor. In fact, with 2002's The Mulberry Tree, Deveraux seems to be getting more comfortable setting stories in the present, which is a good thing, since the fans she won with her historical books are eager to follow her into the future.
Jude married Claude Montassir, with whom she had a son, Sam Alexander Montassir, in 1997. They eventually divorced. On Oct. 6th, 2005, Sam died at the age of eight in a motorcycle accident.
Jude has lived in several countries and all over the United States. She currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an additional home in the medieval city of Badolato, Italy.
