Product description

Review

"[In the Midst of Winter] forthrightly embraces both harsh realities and whimsy, pleasure and pain in this buoyant adventure, a heartfelt story of resilience and respect that seems just the thing to help us through these darkest of days in our land of exiles."-- "The Seattle Times"

"[Allende] continues to beguile readers with themes of social justice and love, tied together with a bit of magical realism. In this vivid and fast-paced work of fiction, [she] weaves a suspenseful love story, rendering [its] central trio with generosity, spirit, and passion."-- "National Book Reivew"

"A syntactically beautiful story with the twists and turns of a telenovela and warmth at its center."-- "Minneapolis Star Tribune"

"A timely message about immigration and the meaning of home."-- "People"

"Allende has a rare and precious gift for simultaneously challenging and entrancing readers by dramatizing with startling intimacy such dire situations as the desperation behind illegal immigration and domestic violence, then reveling, a page later, in spiritual visions or mischievous sexiness or heroic levity."-- "Booklist (starred review)"

"Allende uses imagination to help readers gain a better understanding of what the immigrant experience is really like for many people in this country."-- "Chicago Reader"

"Allende's latest tale is heartfelt and raw... The interactions between the characters is well thought out and deep. Readers will come to love them and experience the heartbreak and joy both of their past, present, and future."
-- "RT Book Reviews"

"Devotees of Allende's forays into magical realism (The House of Spirits, The Stories of Eva Luna) will find the universe she creates here--an account of earthly lives lived in an earthly setting--more madcap and macabre."-- "Newsday"

"Filled with Allende's signature lyricism and ingenious plotting, the book delves wonderfully into what it means to respect, protect, and love."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"Isabel Allende brings her poetic and compassionate eye to In the Midst of Winter, [which] is being compared with her masterpiece The House of the Spirits."
-- "CBS' WATCH! Magazine"

"Isabel Allende's masterful blend of history, suspense, and rising passion makes for yet another riveting novel."-- "BBC America"

"It's when revealing the characters' harrowing past lives in other countries that the generous and unflagging energy that characterized Allende's debut, The House of the Spirits, can most clearly be felt."-- "San Francisco Chronicle"

"The contrast of a modern-day mystery with the characters' magical worlds of South American culture, makes In the Midst of Winter an absorbing, page-turning adventure."-- "Woodbury"

"The lesson is clear in both book and life--passion is possible. So is survival and change and making a difference in the world, in Isabel Allende's grand and inimitable style."-- "The New Orleans Advocate"

"This winter's tale has something to melt each frozen heart."-- "Kirkus"
