La primera novela de Isabel Allende narra la saga de una poderosa familia de terratenientes. El despótico patriarca Esteban Trueba ha construido con mano de hierro un imperio privado que empieza a tambalearse con el paso del tiempo y un entorno social explosivo. Finalmente, la decadencia personal del patriarca arrastrará a los Trueba a una dolorosa desintegración.

It made me angry, it made me cry and it made me laugh. I read about the history of Chile and the historical background, but Isabel Allende captured the human essences and day to day of that history. This does and amazing job at mixing the magical elements with the sad reality of war and the difficulties of life. I felt for every character, which only made the story even more tragic and beautiful. After this book all i want to do is listen to more of her stories.The story has left me with a lose for words and emotionally raw.
