The Muslim and Spanish Portuguese influences, Architecture and Artwork around Lisboa were particularly of interest for me. I relived alot of Lisboa through this wonderful The girl from lisbon of the fascinating Dona Gracia.
I picked up this nook to read on my recent trip to Portugal. This book had potential but was just so hard to read. The story is interesting enough but the narrative read like a history book. It also ended abruptly, without really coming to a good end point. Overall, super disappointed. Fascinating subject deserving of a more complex treatment.
Some nuance might have been lost in translation. Sep 01, Becky rated it liked it. Dona Gracia Mendes was an interesting and inspiring woman, and especially amazing for that time in history. This historical story was very informative and captured my interest from the beginning; but, it seems Guiora Barak's deadline must have caught him.
I found it frustrating that the story stopped before the wedding and Dona Gracia's accomplishments were paraphrased in one last chapter. Emphasis : never underestimate the importance of the final proof read. A little bit slow but very informative. Apr 18, linda katz rated it it was amazing.
