Isabel Allende did it again! Such an amazing read, you will laugh and cry, but most importantly you won’t be able to put the book down. I learned a lot about immigration laws, war, conflict, and how people are able to raise above their circumstances.
I used to love the writing of Isabel Allende, but her last few novels have disappointed, and this one is no exception. It started out quite well, but then the way the stories of the main characters came together was so contrived. Add to that, the way she shoved her political agenda at readers, I felt like I was being preached at.
Very timely. Good job at connecting the historical dots. Isabel Allende continues to engage her readers.
Well written, good pace, emotional in all the right places.
