“Poignant, powerful” and “timeless” (Boston Globe), Isabel Allende’s acclaimed historical fiction weaves reality, memory, and mysticism into tapestries of intergenerational family sagas about war, love, and politics. The recipient of 50 awards in more than a dozen countries, she is also the creator of an eponymous foundation dedicated to empowering women and girls worldwide. Allende’s first international bestseller, The House of the Spirits, was adapted into a feature film starring Meryl Streep. Her other novels include the New York Times bestsellers The Japanese Lover, Inés of My Soul, Portrait in Sepia, Daughter of Fortune, and Maya’s NotebookIn the Midst of Winter explores the plight of immigrants and refugees in a time-hopping tale through Brooklyn, Guatemala, Chile, and Brazil.
