Review:

"The Orlando Sentinel Full of grace and passion...love and revenge...enchanting...One could go on reading her stories forever.

"Chicago Sun-Times"

Instantly seductive, richly sensual, and unabashedly romantic.



"The Orlando Sentinel"

Full of grace and passion...love and revenge...enchanting...One could go on reading her stories forever.



"The Wall Street Journal"

Gratifyingly ambitious...truly captivating...There is a richness in this book -- and it is, in its finest moments, a richness not only of language but of life.



Leigh Allison Wilson

"The Washington Post"

Allende is a real talent, an amazingly prolific one. In her stories there are palpable life and death risks, the risks of passionate love, the risks of passionate belief, of convictions and honor.



"San Francisco Chronicle"

An extraordinary fictional potion.



"San Francisco Chronicle"

Allende again shows her brilliance as a storyteller...[who] grips us from first sentence to last.



"The San Diego Union"

Isabel Allende always revives one's faith in the intoxicating power of sheer old-fashioned storytelling.



Gillian Steward

"The Calgary Herald"

The stories are like opulent parables...I, for one, sense I will be going back to this book again and again just to be with them.



Sarah Sheard

"The Toronto Star"

The fabulous scale of narrative, the characters as darkly pungent as coffee tinged with blood, charge her stories with a physicality and power that will leave the readers checking for bruises on their thighs.



Jane Urquhart

"Quill & Quire"

What is most admirable about this collection is Allende's ability to portray a world in which the ordinary and the miraculous, the natural and the supernatural, the political and the particular not only co-exist but actually affect one another.
