The unforgettable first novel that established Isabel Allende as one of the world's most gifted and imaginative storytellers.
"The House of the Spirits" brings to life the triumphs and tragedies of three generations of the Trueba family. The patriarch Esteban is a volatile, proud man whose voracious pursuit of political power is tempered only by his love for his delicate wife, Clara, a woman with a mystical connection to the spirit world. When their daughter Blanca embarks on a forbidden love affair in defiance of her implacable father, the result is an unexpected gift to Esteban: his adored granddaughter Alba, a beautiful and strong-willed child who will lead her family and her country into a revolutionary future.
One of the most important novels of the twentieth century, "The House of the Spirits" is an enthralling epic that spans decades and lives, weaving the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.
