    One of my very favorite books. I just love Isabel Allende and this was her first book, and, to me, probably her best.

    My most favourite book ever :) I've lost count how many times I've read it.. always my go-to book when I need the perfect read!!

    House of Spirits - Isabel Allende. The story details the life of the Trueba family, spanning four generations, and tracing the post-colonial social and political upheavals of Chile. The story is told mainly from the perspective of two protagonists (Esteban and Blanca) and incorporates elements of magical realism.
