Allende - She's BACK!

Isabel Allende's newest novel, Ines of My Soul, promises to be as good as her previous books. Even in the first 50 pages, Allende's gift for conveying the epic life events of ordinary people is evident and breath-taking. Beginning in 1500 with the birth of her protagonist, and sweeping through the Old and New Worlds until 1580, including the conquest of Chile, this fabulous tale will grab you. Although Allende isn't an easy read, she is always worthwhile and fulfilling. Don't let the translation from the Spanish deter you. There are several potential library programs in these pages. More on that once I finish reading! -- Valkyrie
