- Kurzbeschreibung<p>A mesmerizing novel that transports readers to a sunny Portuguese town with a shadowy past&8212;where two women, decades apart, are drawn into a dark game of truth and lies that still haunts the shifting sea marshes. Traveling to Faro, Portugal, journalist Joanna Millard hopes to escape an unsatisfying relationship and a stalled career; Faro is an enchanting town, and the seaside views are enhanced by the company of Nathan Emberlin, a charismatic younger man. But Joanna soon realizes that behind the crumbling facades of Moorish buildings Faro has a seedy underbelly, its economy compromised by corruption and wartime spoils. And Nathan has an ulterior motive for seeking her company: he is determined to discover the truth involving a child&8217;s kidnapping that may have taken place on this dramatic coastline more than two decades ago. </p><p>Joanna&8217;s subsequent search leads her to Ian Rylands, an English expat who cryptically suggests she will find answers in The Alliance, a novel written by American Esta Hartford. The book recounts an American couple&8217;s experience in Portugal during World War II, and their entanglements both personal and professional with their German enemies. Only Rylands insists the book isn&8217;t fiction, and as Joanna reads deeper into The Alliance, she begins to suspect that Esta Hartford&8217;s story and Nathan Emberlin&8217;s may indeed converge in Faro&8212;where the past not only casts a long shadow but still exerts a very present danger.</p><p>Praise for <em>300 Days Of Sun</em></p><p>&8220;With its lush settings, high-stakes suspense, and novel-within-a-novel, 300 Days of Sun is a feast for fiction lovers. Lawrenson delivers a labyrinth of complex relationships the reader is both breathless to solve and eager to return to upon completion. Haunting.&8221;&8212;Erika Robuck, author of <em>Hemingway&8217;s Girl</em> and <em>The House of Hawthorne</em></p><p>Praise for Deborah Lawrenson</p><p>&8220;Deborah Lawrenson&8217;s writing is delicious. Her stories are atmospheric, intoxicating, and impossible not to get lost in.&8221;&8212;Sarah Jio, author of <em>Goodnight June</em> and <em>Blackberry Winter</em></p><p>&8220;[Lawrenson has a] gift for bringing the senses to life. When she writes, &8216;you could open an envelope . . . and find it contained no words at all, just a handful of lavender with a ribbon of dried grapefruit skin, or a sprinklingof vanilla seeds,&8217; you wish the pages were scratch-and-sniff.&8221;&8212;<em>People</em></p><p>&8220;Offers a vivid escape to an intriguing place, with location playing as much a role as those who dwell there.&8221;&8212;<em>Washington Post</em></p><p>&8220;Think Graham Greene with a dash of Poe.&8221;&8212
