Beschrijving

From Isabel Allende, one of the world’s greatest storytellers, comes a magisterial work of historical fiction that chronicles the astonishing life of In Suarez, a daring Spanish conquistadora who toiled to build the nation of Chile - and whose vital role has too often been forgotten by history.It is the sixteenth century, the beginning of the Spanish conquest of the Americas, and In born into a poor family in Spain, makes ends meet as a seamstress. When her restless husband disappears to the New World, In uses the opportunity to search for him as an excuse to flee her stifling homeland and seek adventure. After her treacherous journey takes her to Peru, she learns that her husband has died in battle. Soon, however, she begins a fiery love affair with a man who will change the course of her life: Pedro de Valdivia, war hero and field marshal to the famed conquistador Francisco Pizarro.Valdivia’s dream is to succeed where other Spaniards have failed, by becoming the conqueror of Chile. Together, In and her lover will build the new city of Santiago, and will wage a bloody, ruthless war against the indigenous Chileans - the fierce local Indians, and the even fiercer Mapuche from the south. The horrific struggle will change them forever, pulling each of them toward their separate destinies.In of My Soul is a work of breathtaking scope: meticulously researched, it engagingly dramatizes the known events of In Suarez’s life, crafting them into a novel full of the narrative brilliance and passion that Allende’s readers have come to love.PRAISE FOR ZORRO‘ABSOLUTELY IRRESISTIBLE ... BEAUTIFUL AND DISTURBING AND PROFOUND’ GUARDIAN
