Amor por Chile y una gran nostalgia son el origen de este libro. La presencia continuada del pasado, el sentimiento de verse ausente de la patria, la melancolía por la dicha perdida, la conciencia de haber sido peregrina y forastera: en este libro Isabel Allende recoge toda la emoción que esto conlleva, y nos la transmite con inteligencia y humor.

In this book, Isabel Allende combines all her feelings to recreate 2 intertwined stories, that of her country and that of her own, in an intimate tone, in an autobiographical and p
