About the Author

Dora Openheim-

When Dora Openheim wrote in Portuguese- Cartas Lacradas 1850-1917
"Sealed Letters" 1850-1917 -the/ historical novel , that became a publishing success in six weeks in Brazil, no one asked the woman who previously had been known only as a painter and a brilliant fashion designer, the obvious question:
When did she realize she could write a novel?

Her answer first, was a smile. "This book is a coincidence in my life....." "For 35 years I had all those documents in privacy... all those wonderful personages inside a sewing box, all in those letters inside my closed...and to be sincere I wrote this book to myself...to clean my soul, after so many decades of obsession to read those letters and the diary of Anna Varsano, to understand her language, to be inside dusty archives in Europe to find more about them, to learn each day more... Hearing memories from people who had memories and traditions from their ancestors.
Writing this book, was a marvelous experience, the best time of my life, when I have learned that: in one or other way I had a mission ... And this mission was a way to make justice , to thank God and pay promises "

The best book in years!!! Sealed Letters 1850-1917 is a Grand Voyage to exoctic ports that we have never been before. Like inside film we go from one place to the other feeling the personages, their dreams and sorrows, the history,feeling the smell and looking the paysage. Dora Openheim is a real talented storyteller, and a delicate writer. I could not stop reading it. An unforgettable story, about faith and fate. A saga of real personages, in the XIX Century, very well researched and prepare yourself to be in tears at the end .All my friends are talking about this book in parties and meetings. It is so intriguing that we cannot stop to think about it. For me, Sealed Letters 1850-1917- is the book to be read today and in a hundred years from now.Like ta classic. I cannot wait for the second book.
