Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Portrait in Sepia is the best book Allende has published in the United States since her first novel of nearly two decades ago, The House of the Spirits.”
—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

Portrait in Sepia tightens the weave of a multigenerational fantasy as complete and inspiring as the real world it parallels … Allendes enchanting historical universe keeps expanding and Portrait in Sepia is a new galactic jewel.”
—Chicago Tribune

A richly imagined historical novel about memory and family secrets from the New York Times bestselling author of Island Beneath the Sea, Inés of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, Zorro, and House of the Spirits.

Synopsis:

In nineteenth-century Chile, Aurora del Valle suffers a brutal trauma that erases all recollections of the first five years of her life. Raised by her regal and ambitious grandmother Paulina del Valle, Aurora grows up in a privileged environment but is tormented by horrible nightmares. When she is forced to recognize her betrayal at the hands of the man she loves, and to cope with the resulting solitude, she explores the mystery of her past.

Synopsis:

Completing the trilogy that includes the bestselling novels "Daughter of Fortune" and "The House of the Spirits, Portrait in Sepia" is a stunning novel about memory and family secrets. Set at the end of the 19th century, this book is a richly imagined historical novel featuring the colorful and intrepid del Valle family.
