Excerpt

ja o epitaphio do immortal infante D. Henrique.

Proseguem os descobrimentos. Pedro de Cintra chega ao cabo de Santa Maria. Pedro Escobar e João de Santarem vão á Mina. Deixa Lopo Gonçalves o seu nome ao cabo que avista. Fernando Pó descobre as ilhas de S. Thomé, do Principe, de Anno Bom, e a Formosa, que depois tomou o seu nome. Manda el-rei D. João II a Diogo de Azambuja que levante o castello de S. Jorge da Mina, e expede Diogo Cam para proseguir no reconhecimento da costa. Em 1484 acerta Diogo Cam com o rio Zaire, desembarca na margem do sul, e, tomando conta das terras adjacentes em nome do rei de Portugal, alli assenta um padrão em signal da sua passagem, e para assegurar no futuro a posse que hoje nos pretendem contestar. Ainda em 1859, passados 375 annos, tivemos o gosto de ver e tocar o pouco que existia de tão valiosa reliquia. Seguiu Diogo Cam para o sul, e no cabo Negro levantou padrão egual ao que deixára no Zaire

Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
