Paula
by Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende wrote this book "Paula" with a broken heart. Paula, her daughter, had just died of a rare illness. Here Isabel Allende shows her real artistic talent, as we witness the author go through the most painful and brutal times in her life. While she weaves her story, we can feel her pain as if it were our own. We stay with her through her journey to the wrenched end which is remarkably beautifully rendered. Despite the sadness of the story, it is not a depressing one; the book does not leave us with a bitter taste in our mouths, instead it gives us courage to comfront our own darkness.

Isabel Allende escribio este libro Paula con el corazón roto. Paula, su hija, había contraído una rara enfermedad que la llevo a la muerte. Aquí Allende nos muestra la gran calidad de su arte y la acompañamos en los momentos más intensos y brutales de su vida. Sentimos su dolor como si fuera el nuestro, mientras ella va tejiendo la historia que nos lleva a un final desgarrador pero hermosamente escrito. A pesar de los sentimientos de tristeza que la agobian, el libro no nos deja un sabor amargo en la boca; más bien, nos alienta a confrotar nuestras negruras con valentia.
