Readers meet Roser and Victor during the Spanish Civil War, then follow them into exile in Chile where they live the remaining years of their lives.
Loved this book, another perfect one for September’s Hispanic Heritage Month reading. Allende writes a beautiful story of unconventional love filled with sympathetic fictional and real-life characters. Chile’s famed poet Pablo Neruda plays a key role in Roser and Victor’s life—an irony that I began reading this book on the anniversary of his death. Many parallels to the years surrounding the election of her uncle Salvador Allende and this current time in US politics. Recommended.
