Regular price $14.50 Sale

Best selling international author, Isabel Allende tackles her homeland head-on in this staggering, epic romance._Portrait in Sepia_ is both a magnificent historical novel set at the end of the nineteenth century in Chile and a marvellous family saga peopled by characters from _Daughter of Fortune_ and _The House of the Spirits_, two of Allende's most celebrated novels.As a young girl, Aurora del Valle suffered a brutal trauma that has shaped her character and erased from her mind all recollection of the first five years of her life. Raised by her ambitious grandmother, the regal and commanding Paulina del Valle, she grows up in a privileged environment, free of the limitations that circumscribe the lives of women at that time, but tormented by terrible nightmares. When she finds herself alone at the end of an unhappy love affair, she decides to explore the mystery of her past, to discover what it was, exactly, all those years ago, that had such a devastating effect on her young life.Richly detailed, epic in scope, this engrossing story of the dark power of hidden secrets is intimate in its probing of human character, and thrilling in the way it illuminates the complexity of family ties. This 2002 HarperPerennial Paperback is in Good condition.
