About the Author

Isabel Allende is the author of twelve works of fiction, including the New York Times bestsellers Maya's Notebook, Island Beneath the Sea, InΓ©s of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, and a novel that has become a world-renowned classic, The House of the Spirits. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.


"Isabel Allende is a writer of deep conviction, but she knows that in the end it is people, not issues, who matter most. The people in Of Love and Shadows are so real, their triumphs and defeats are so faithful to the truth of human existence, that we see the world in miniature. This is precisely what fiction should do."--Jonathan Yardley "The Washington Post "
"Allende is a smashing storyteller who brings the most minor characters vividly to life. A tale of love and political commitment."--Publishers Weekly
"Of Love and Shadows has all the ingredients of excellent fiction: tense drama, rich detail and characterization, and timeless themes."--San Diego Tribune
"Allende has demonstrated that she is, beyond question, one of the great Latin American writers of today...It is a rare and exciting experience to discover the work of a writer as good as Isabel Allende.... Allende's writing...is so warm, so human, so filled with love for her characters and her country, that in the end human nature, in its goodness and its strength, counteracts the horror and casts light and love where before there was only shadow."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"There is wit and romance in Of Love and Shadows, as well as a hard, gritty edge. Allende's second novel is a major achievement and worth anyone's time."--Milwaukee Journal
