9780066211602: Retrato en Sepia: Una Novela

Narrada en la voz de una joven mujer, ésta es una magnífica novela histórica situada a finales del siglo XIX en Chile, y una portentosa saga familiar en la que reencontramos algunos personajes de Hija de la fortuna y de La casa de los espiritus, novelas cumbres en la obra de Isabel Allende. El tema principal es la memoria y los secretos de familia. La protagonista, Aurora del Valle, sufre un trauma brutal que determina su carácter y borra de su mente los primeros cinco años de su vida. Criada por su ambiciosa abuela, Paulina del Valle, crece en un ambiente privilegiado, libre de muchas de las limitaciones que oprimen a las mujeres de su época, pero atormentada por horribles pesadillas. Cuando debe afrontar la traición del hombre que ama y la soledad, decide explorar el misterio de su pasado. Una obra de extraordinaria dimensión humana que eleva la narrativa de la autora a cotas de perfección literaria.
