This book brought back many familiar things that validated what I thought I perceived, especially about the ostentatious character of the people.
I really wanted to understand the author’s connection to Salvador Allende, especially because I first read her first book, “The House of Spirits”. I continue to thirst for more knowledge about Chilean history now that I am retired and have the time to read about areas that are nostalgic to me.
Thank you Ms. Isabel Allende. It would’ve been fun to know you when we lived in Chile.
