It took me a long time read this book it was the number of book It was not the number of that got to me but the number of words Allende packs into a page and the fact that she arranges them all so beautifully you ave to be careful not to miss one of them Her writing is stunning so why only three starsI enjoyed the story very much especially the first Shadow Point (The Gothic War, half when it is set in Chile Later when the book moves to San Francisco during the Gold Rush it becomes of aistory of life in those times and very little Taboo Times Ten happens for many pages Events which couldave been tense and exciting lose something from the fact that the author makes it clear very early on what the outcome of the book will be There were some author makes it clear very early on what the outcome of the book will be There were some characters especially Tao Chi en Allende also includes a number of amazing strong women all remarkable for a period when women usually lived very restricted lives Then she ruined it by making them lose all sense of logic and reason when they fell in love with totally unsuitable people For me then a good book beautifully written but I definitely liked The Japanese Lover 35 stars Confession time I was cleaning this weekend and came across this book A book that I thought I Death Note One-Shot Special (Death Note, Chapter had finished reading but I found a bookmark where Iad obviously stoppedA proper re read for 2018 was warrantedThe best way to describe Isabel Allende is that she s both poet and painter Just like a poet Allende wants The Empty Tomb her readers to be seduced by all five senses Like a painter Allende makes sure thater readers with their eyes open or shut are transported back to the time period she s writing about In this case Chile and California in the span of years between 1843 1853 That might seem like a short period of time but remember there s lots of detail Perhaps the biggest gem of Allende s work is that she writes strong women and she puts Dont Step on the Crack! her women in precarious situations and sees what they will do about them Both Miss Rose and Eliza are women who both try to overcome the obstacles of their birth The only drawback of the story was that it just ended without feeling like the end I remember beginning to read Daughter of Fortune several years ago but for some reason put it aside and never finished it How I was able to do that so easily I will never know because the second time around this book ended up being difficult to put downIsabel Allendeas created a very engaging and well rounded character in Eliza Sommers I found the most endearing thing about Eliza was Gay Travel Guide For Tops And Bottoms her stubborness ander imperfections Often that is what will draw me to a character because it makes them real and I found Eliza couldn t be real if she The Irish Scissor Sisters had even stepped off the pageEvery character that Eliza encounteredelped to enrich How to Think Like an Entrepreneur her life and each one added to the story that kept you reading but obviously the one you bonded to the most was the one whoeld a story of Mortelle Adle, Tome 15: Funky Moumoute his own Tao Chi en The bond those two created could drive you crazy and was really kept me reading until the very endWithout giving anything away I ll finish off by saying this book is written like Elizaas developed raw and real Allende is not afraid to stray from the Hollywood style of story telling with everything working out as it should or the way the reader wants it to end There are bumps and blips throughout the story that will drive you true The Events at Poroth Farm heart romantics out of your mind but those of us who crave a certain reality in our stories will love itIn the end this story will make you feel good even better than your typical feel good book because you feel like you can tell yourself this is real maybe it really didappen Hija de la fortuna Daughter of Fortune Isabel AllendeDaughter of Fortune is a novel by Isabel Allende It was published first in Spanish in 1998 Isabel Allende says of The Hare Hypothesis her female protagonist in Daughter of Fortune Eliza that she might well represent who the author mightave been in another life Allende spent seven years of research on this Super Rue (Super Rues Adventures Book 1) her fifth novel which she says is a story of a young woman s search for self knowledge In Chile during the 1840 s Eliza Sommers is a young Chilean girl raised and educated by English Anglican siblings Victorian spinster Rose and strict Jeremy Sommers and their sailor brother John Sommers who are expats living in the port of Valparaiso ever since they founder on their doorstep and taught in the art of cooking by the Mapuche Indian Mama Fresia Over most of Part I Eliza s origins and upbringing and Atentado her maturity are told Eliza falls in love with Joauin Andieta a young Chilean man who is concerned aboutis mother who is living in poverty The young couple ave an affair ultimately resulting in Eliza getting pregnant Soon news of gold being discovered in California reaches Chile and Joauin goes out to Calif.
