The House of the Spirits

by Isabel Allende
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (Vintage Classics) (2011)

The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende Allende’s magical realist epic is an international classic - ‘thick with plot and bristling with characters. A novel to be read for its brilliant craftsmanship and its narrative of inescapable power' (El Pais)
 
As a girl, Clara del Valle can read fortunes, make objects move as if they had lives of their own, and predict the future. Following the mysterious death of her sister, Rosa the Beautiful, Clara is mute for nine years. When she breaks her silence, it is to announce that she will be married soon to the stern and volatile landowner Esteban Trueba.
 
Set in an unnamed Latin American country over three generations, The House of the Spirits is a magnificent epic of a proud and passionate family, secret loves and violent revolution.
