Staff Reviews


Ines of My Soul by Isabel Allende is a rip roaring good story!  Ines Suarez crosses the seas from Spain to the New World following her husband.  She arrives to find herself a widow, but life has interesting times in store for Ines.  She catches the eye of Pedro de Valdivia, becoming his mistress.  Together they will conquer a land and create the country of Chile.  The story tears across the page, leaving you feeling you are riding along with the Conquistadors as their horses gallop across the land! Even more amazing, it is fiction based on real people, Ines lived!

Description


From Isabel Allende, author of novels beloved across the globe, comes a magisterial work of historical fiction that chronicles the astonishing life of Inés Suárez, a daring Spanish conquistadora who toiled to build the nation of Chile—and whose vital role has too often been neglected by history.

Born into a poor family in Spain, Inés works hard to make ends meet. It is the sixteenth century, and when her shiftless husband disappears to the New World, Inés uses the opportunity to search for him as an excuse to flee her stifling homeland and seek adventure. After her treacherous journey takes her to Peru, she learns that her husband has died in battle. Soon, she begins a fiery love affair with a man who will change the course of her life: Pedro de Valdivia, war hero and field marshal to the famed Francisco Pizarro.

Inés of My Soul is a work of breathtaking scope: meticulously researched, it engagingly dramatizes the known events of Inés Suárez's life, crafting them into a novel full of the narrative brilliance and passion readers have come to expect from Isabel Allende.

Performed by Blair Brown
