THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING NOVEL FROM LITERARY LEGEND ISABEL ALLENDE
'Epic, beautifully crafted . . . Gripping from start to finish' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A moving exploration of both the pain and the freedom of being an outsider' NEW STATESMAN 'A new novel by Isabel Allende is always a treat' DAILY MAIL

One extraordinary woman. One hundred years of history. One unforgettable story.

Violeta comes into the world on a stormy day in 1920, the first daughter in a family of five boisterous sons. From the start, her life is marked by extraordinary events. The ripples of the Great War are still being felt, even as the Spanish flu arrives on the shores of her South American homeland almost at the moment of her birth.

Told in the form of a letter to someone Violeta loves above all others, this is the story of a hundred-year life - of devastating heartbreak and passionate affairs, poverty and wealth, terrible loss and immense joy. Bearing witness to a century of history, it is a life shaped by the fight for women's rights, the rise and fall of tyrants and, ultimately, not one but two pandemics.

Through the eyes of a woman whose unforgettable passion, determination and sense of humour will carry her through a lifetime of upheaval, Isabel Allende once more brings us an epic that is both fiercely inspiring and deeply emotional.

Reviews for Violeta

An icon of world literature -- Khaled Hosseini Allende has everything it takes: the ear, the eye, the mind, the heart, the all-encompassing humanity * New York Times * Allende knows that all stories are love stories, and the greatest love stories are told by time -- Colum McCann If Allende's life depended on her narrative gifts, she'd not only survive, but reign * Los Angeles Times * Allende's stories are delicate, their images akin to poetry -- Barbara Kingsolver
