It’s Valentine’s Day 💕so it had to be a love story recommendation. Allende writes an epic one in her novel Daughter of Fortune. The story follows the life of Eliza who is adopted by a wealthy English family in Valparaiso, Chile. Eliza will not conform to the formality of English life despite her family’s best efforts which results in her following her heart to the newly discovered California. Here, amongst the gold seeking men from all over the world, she learns the real meaning of love.
Once again Allende outdoes herself with her impeccable story telling skills exploring the realms of love, adventure, medicine, gold, fortune and the endeavours of opportunistic individuals❤️📚
