Présentation de l'éditeur

A contemporary romance with undertones of medieval history and a spiritual twist, woven with ancient Welsh mythology and timeless Irish humour. 'The 49th Day' is the first in a trilogy of novels weaving together the past, present and future lives of Katherine Walsh and the powerful men who seek to control her. Based around the Buddhist notion of reincarnation, the story unfolds to reveal the events of the first seven weeks of her unexpected pregnancy. Coincidences in her past and present lives become clear as she grapples with the current stranglehold on her life and contemplates her future as the custodian of the soul of her unborn child.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Secrets can be wonderful." 8 août 2014
Par C A Mathews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Katherine's present, past and future lives are the warp and weft of this atmospheric tale which carries the reader from a Welsh island retreat across the sea to Ireland, weaving together the skeins of philosophy and history as it takes shape. The men in Katherine's past have been disappointing – the question is, can this pattern be changed with the appearance of Fintan Byrne, who has given up the rat race to take charge of his ancestral land in the beautiful Wicklow Mountains? The narrative is interlaced with haunting memories and we find Katherine musing: 'Secrets can be wonderful...and also very dark.' At the conclusion of the book some threads of the tapestry have been left untied which I very much hope indicates a sequel.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An intriguing and delightful tale 8 août 2014
Par M. C. Morison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The 49th Day is a romance. In the best sense of the word. It has many elements woven together with ease: a mysterious cliff-top suicide; dreams that are all too real; historical connections between Wales and Ireland of which few are now aware; past lives gently and not so gently flowing into the present.
Katherine, the heroine, finds she is connected in some deep way with Angharad Fitz-Gerald of the early 12th century, the age of chivalry as well as a time of great physical violence. Doorways to the world just beyond open for Katherine, when she takes a retreat on an island just off the coast of Wales. Here she meets Fin, an Irishman who hopes to convert his rural family home into an eco-holiday site who – as with the Irish tales that so delight him – has a struggle ahead with his own brother.
Helen Noble has crafted a tale that literally had me gasp with surprise at one point. The story gradually reeled me in and I read the last third in a rush just to see how everything would be brought to resolution. Even as I write this review I find myself pondering on some of the characters who gently add either mystery or menace. And Ms. Noble is to be congratulated on having the courage to write some scenes where chivalry and sensuality intertwine delightfully. An historically intriguing tale artfully told.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Engaging tale 20 août 2014
Par Nimue Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
It took me about twenty pages to settle into this story, and after that I was hooked, following the central female protagonist through her past life adventures and modern challenges. I hate the term ‘chick-lit’ – so if you’re like me in that regard and the kind of reader who is looking for stories that aren’t lightweight, but want tales about modern women with spiritual and practical challenges, this is a good book to get your hands on. There’s love, but it’s not a conventional romance arc. There are life choices, and the influence of past lives echoes into the present, but it’s not one of those irritatingly tidy stories with too much explained – mysteries pervade, and the structure is really bold, especially in terms of how it ends (I won’t give anything more away!). I very much enjoyed it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Helen Noble creates two wonderful characters who live on in my mind 3 septembre 2014
Par Heather Mendel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The 49th Day is a most satisfying read. In a contemporary story offering provoking clues about our possible pasts and futures, Helen Noble creates two wonderful characters who live on in my mind. The story unfolds naturally with enough unexpected twists to leave the reader wondering how it will end— and the author does not disappoint us. Magically interweaving experience and belief, she paints an intriguing canvas that sparks my own curiosity about Wales and Ireland— next on my travel wish list.

Par johno - Publié sur Amazon.com

The 49th Day is a tale to be savored in the garden, carried through the house and propped open as you cook dinner, taken in to the tub with a glass of wine, and curled up with in the wee hours, preferably on a stormy night, with a well-loved quilt, and finished in under twenty-four hours.

Katherine has been troubled by dark –perhaps prescient- dreams since childhood, dreams in which powerful men attempt to squeeze the life out of her. Conditioned from a young age to do what’s expected of her, even her early rebellious dalliance with her much senior professor leaves Katherine living in the confines of his rules- about marriage and children, and later in relationships that “limped” along.

The story almost moves from black and white into color as she attempts to escape these confines, escape the men who don’t even notice she’s dyed her hair, much less seen her as person. As something of a spiritual seeker, she blends religions, astragals, the ancient Celtic Samhain, and even past life regression therapy to cleverly reveal the puzzle pieces of the story.
From a technical perspective, the time shifts were occasionally confusing, but the reader catches up in just a sentence or two and is swept away with the mystery and the imagery, like “With her skin a shade of sun-kissed gold stretched over her lithe limbs, the image softly framed with vines of deep red bougainvillea and pale pink Plumeria blooms.”

Noble has crafted a tale full of love- of families, lovers new and scorned, and “l’amour propre,” with Medieval historical fiction, and modern settings in England, Wales and Ireland. Noble blurs the definition of time and love so deftly that the world becomes a layered, intricately woven set of experiences, from feeling in color to dreaming in the past. I’ll be eagerly anticipating the next two books in trilogy!
