Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

In this vivid and earthy historical romance, a bold Chilean senorita, pregnant by her young lover, follows him to San Francisco during the Gold Rush. Allende is a contemporary, female Cervantes; this poetic epic is alternately ironic, surprising and touching. Blair Brown does a workmanlike job, but her flat, heavy tones do not sing as one needs to sing in order to do justice to this masterpiece.
