When Paula, a young Chilean woman, is sent to live with her aunt in Spain in the late 1950s, she is unaware of the tumultuous political and social changes that are taking place in her home country. Paula is drawn to the beauty of the countryside and the graciousness of her aunt, but she is also troubled by the repressive atmosphere in Spain and the constant fear of being sent back to Chile. Paula gradually comes to understand the tumultuous political and social changes that are taking place in her home country, and she is ultimately able to fight for her rights and freedom. Paula is a powerful and inspiring story of courage and determination, and it is an excellent introduction to the life and work of Nobel Prize-winning author Isabel Allende.; Remainder; 8vo; 330 pages.
