This book is one of my favorite books by Isabel Allende. I found her writing to be very captivating and full of magical realism. Her prose is beautiful as she tells the story of four generations of women. It almost seems autobiographical of Allende‘s life. It is easy to become attached to these four main characters and to become emotionally involved in their lives.

California opens the door to a new life of freedom and independence for the young Chilean, and her search for her elusive lover gradually turns into another kind of journey.
