The Stories of EVA Luna by Isabel Allende
  

Lovereading view...

Interweaving the real and the magical, Isabel Allende explores love, vengeance, compassion and female power, creating a world that is at once poignantly familiar and intriguingly new. Rendered in her sumptuously imagined, uniquely lyrical style, The Stories of Eva Luna is a cornerstone of her work. This treasure trove of brilliantly crafted stories is a superb example of a writer working at the height of her powers.

If you like Isabel Allende you might also like to read books by Lawrence Hill, Paulo Coelho and Elif Shafak.
