In The Midst Of Winter

by Isabel Allende, In The Midst Of Winter Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download In The Midst Of Winter books, New York Times and worldwide bestselling “dazzling storyteller” (Associated Press) Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accident—which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives. Richard Bowmaster—a 60-year-old human rights scholar—hits the car of Evelyn Ortega—a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala—in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor’s house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz—a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile—for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a mesmerizing story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia. Exploring the timely issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees, the book recalls Allende’s landmark novel The House of the Spirits in the way it embraces the cause of “humanity, and it does so with passion, humor, and wisdom that transcend politics” (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post). In the Midst of Winter will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

Memoir, autobiography, epicedium, perhaps even some fiction: they are all here, and they are all quite wonderful.” —Los Angeles Times When Isabel Allende’s daughter, Paula, became gravely ill and fell into a coma, the author began to write the story of her family for her unconscious child. In the telling, bizarre ancestors appear before our eyes; we hear both delightful and bitter childhood memories, amazing anecdotes of youthful years, the most intimate secrets passed along in whispers.

Isabel Allende

by Raquel Benatar, Isabel Allende Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Isabel Allende books, Isabel was a lonely girl. She would hide in the basement of her grandparents home in Santiago, Chile. In that dark and musty space, she played among the aged family photos and abandoned furniture. Among the cobwebs, the young Isabel read dust-covered books, through which she discovered the silken threads of fantastical stories, threads that would one day inform the novels of a legendary writer. Isabel Allende: Recuerdos para un cuento/Isabel Allende: Memories for a Story gives readers a glimpse of Isabel Allendes childhood influences. Benatar offers a vivid picture of a unique childhood: bewitched by the séances of her grandmother, enlivened by her own adventurous spirit, and haunted by the silence that descended upon the house after the death of a loved one. With the passage of time, Isabel became the keeper of the family memories, memories that come alive in her writing. This intriguing bilingual picture book not only introduces young readers to the life of an important author of our time but also demonstrates how they, too, can use their experiences to write their own family stories. Isabel Allende is the author of Retrato en sepia (Rayo, 2001), Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses (HarperCollins, 1998), Daughter of Fortune (Harper Collins, 1999), Paula (HarperCollins, 1996), De amor y de sombra (HarperCollins, 1995), El plan infinito (Harper Collins, 1995), Cuentos de Eva Luna (HarperCollins, 1995), and The House of the Spirits (Random House, Inc., 1985).

The Soul Of A Woman

by Isabel Allende, The Soul Of A Woman Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download The Soul Of A Woman books, From the New York Times bestselling author of A Long Petal of the Sea comes a passionate and inspiring meditation on what it means to be a woman. “When I say that I was a feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating,” begins Isabel Allende. As a child, she watched her mother, abandoned by her husband, provide for her three small children without “resources or voice.” Isabel became a fierce and defiant little girl, determined to fight for the life her mother couldn’t have. As a young woman coming of age in the late 1960s, she rode the second wave of feminism. Among a tribe of like-minded female journalists, Allende for the first time felt comfortable in her own skin, as they wrote “with a knife between our teeth” about women’s issues. She has seen what the movement has accomplished in the course of her lifetime. And over the course of three passionate marriages, she has learned how to grow as a woman while having a partner, when to step away, and the rewards of embracing one’s sexuality. So what feeds the soul of feminists—and all women—today? To be safe, to be valued, to live in peace, to have their own resources, to be connected, to have control over our bodies and lives, and above all, to be loved. On all these fronts, there is much work yet to be done, and this book, Allende hopes, will “light the torches of our daughters and granddaughters with mine. They will have to live for us, as we lived for our mothers, and carry on with the work still left to be finished.”
