Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An orphan raised in Valparaiso, Chile, by a Victorian spinster and her rigid brother, vivacious young Eliza Sommers follows her lover to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Entering a rough-and-tumble world of new arrivals driven mad by gold fever, Eliza moves in a society of single men and prostitutes with the help of her good friend and savior, the Chinese doctor Tao Chi'en. California opens the door to a new life of freedom and independence to the young Chilean, and her search for her elusive lover gradually turns into another kind of journey. By the time she finally hears news of him, Eliza must decide who her true love really is.

Synopsis:

Set in Anglophile Chile and goldrush California during the middle years of the 19th century, a tale of how Eliza Sommers becomes embroiled in a forbidden love affair with the charismatic, but capricious Joaquin Andieta. When he disappears suddenly for California, she follows him.

Synopsis:

Flamingo B format edition of this latest wide-ranging, majestic novel from one of the Spanish-speaking world's most widely known and bestselling authors. A beautifully crafted romance, set in anglophile Chile and gold rush California, this is being hailed as one of her finest books to date, and her profile worldwide has never been higher. The book will also be the subject of a nationwide advertising campaign, including BR and the London Underground.
