She has written novels based in part on her own experiences, often focusing on the experiences of women, weaving myth and realism together. At times, it feels like Allende is less interested in putting together a coherent story with compelling characters, and more interested in detailing life in various 1850s societies (Valparaiso, San Francisco, Hong Kong). Although not at the level of "Inez del Alma Mia", this novel, taking place in Chile and California during the 1849 gold rush, is highly enjoyable. The premise of the story is quite fascinating with tons of potential. January 2006.

The last 1/4 is a slog to get through and, becuase the first part is so wonderful, I kept reading and thinking "surely, this will work out." I trust I have avoided inserting "spoilers" in the process. Tiene muchos detalles históricos y le gustará (aunque un poco menos) a todos los que conocen y aprecian a Isabel Allende.

This felt like a cheap way for Eliza to get closure with Joaquin so that she could move on with Tao, and it was also DUMB, Ironically, the strength of this book is the very thing that annoyed me by the end.

It took me a long time to read this book. Ms Allende's deft pen conjures to vivid, humane life both the hypocrisy of Victorian mores in South America as well as the savage abandon of the Gold Rush; her cast is wide and diverse, ranging from the mourning Chinese physician who accompanies Eliza to a caravan of prostitutes led by a transgender humanitarian. And I really liked the themes of love, and loneliness, and found family. Reviewed in the United States on February 11, 2017. Si è verificato un errore.

After all, the narrative deals intimately with the youth and blooming into womanhood of two normal women, viz Miss Rose and Eliza. Isabel Allende Llona is a Chilean-American novelist. John Sommers, in his search for Eliza, comes across Jacob Todd, an old suitor of Rose's who is now a journalist known as Jacob Freemont. He winds up abandoning her to pursue wealth in California during the time of the Gold Rush. And each culture was reflected well to the relative sensibilities of their own dissimilar recognitions.

Infused with Ms Allende's trademark turns of phrase ("fate lashed its tail and changed her life forever") and cast of eccentric characters driven by private obsessions, this novel takes place in the 1800s, starting in Chile with the discovery of a baby in a soap crate, left on the threshold of the very proper but secret-riddled English family of the Sommers.
