I am a complete fan of Isabel Allende’s books. This book did not disappoint me. It was informative and powerful. I found the history of Franco Spain, Allende’s socialist years and Pinochet’s military coup so well explained. As always the characters in Allende’s books are so personal and reflective of life and love. A great book.
