Trueba family is impressive. I enjoyed this book so much. It’s huge, eccentric, emotional, spiritual and historical. It’s magnificent. Characters are deep, mystical, love and hate for each other is binding them all.

4 generations of strong women lived in this turbulent South American country - Chile, within memories and spirits, hard and painful life and difficult men, with Esteban Trueba as the constant leader of the pack. The story itself is so deep, as each one of them has a different aura and personality.

Reading this book was like experiencing an emotional rainbow.

Anarika I also loved loved and loved that book. Passinately. Read it in three days, in which I found no good reason to get out of the house. Despised Esteban, adored Blanca, Clara, Alba and all the magical women...one of my favorite!
