I wanted to read fiction non-mystery for a usual change of pace and I couldn't have picked a better one. This is very well written story of a young girl, trapped by convention, following her first love into the New World and all it's trials and tribulations. The story is excellently colored by Isabel Allende, and I would recommend to anyone even if the subject is not to everyone's liking because the prose is magnificent. I wish I could write like she can!
