Victor Dalmau is a young doctor when he is caught up in the Spanish Civil War, a tragedy that leaves his life - and the fate of his country - forever changed. Together with his sister-in-law, he is forced out of his beloved Barcelona and into exile in Chile. There, they find themselves enmeshed in a rich web of characters who come together in love and tragedy over the course of four generations, destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world. 'One of the strongest and most affecting works in Allende's long career' New York Times Book Review 'A defiantly warm and funny novel, by somebody who has earned the right to argue that love and optimism can survive whatever history might throw at us' Daily Telegraph 'Full of ambition and humanity' Sunday Times 'Allende's style is impressively Olympian and the payoff is remarkable' Guardian A 2020 Sunday Times Bestseller

Autorenporträt
Isabel Allende
Rezensionen
Majestic . . . both timeless and perfectly timed for today . . . Allende s assured prose vividly evokes her fictional characters [and] historical figures . . . seamlessly juxtaposing exile with homecoming, otherness with belonging, and tyranny with freedom. Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A tale that is seductively intimate and strategically charming . . . a virtuoso of lucidly well-told, utterly enrapturing fiction . . . Allende deftly addresses war, displacement, violence, and loss in a novel of survival and love under siege. Booklist (starred review)

A Long Petal of the Sea is a rich and transportive novel, epic in scope, about finding love and finding home. PopSugar

An absorbing story. AARP

An immersive read about love and survival. Real Simple

Isabel Allende has time and again proven herself a master of magical realism. Her latest novel . . . serves as a paean to human love and endurance. Elle

Allende fans have been waiting with bated breath for her latest novel, and A Long Petal of the Sea doesn t disappoint. Marie Claire

The wondrous Isabel Allende is back, doing what she does best. Read It Forward

In addition to being well-researched historical fiction, it also parallels current issues. Book Riot

Powerfully told, this is a soaring, inspirational tale. The Orange County Register

Allende . . . has deftly woven fact and fiction, history and memory, to create one of the most richly imagined portrayals of the Spanish Civil War to date, and one of the strongest and most affecting works in her long career. The New York Times Book Review

Allende s latest . . . marks a return to the time and setting of the book that jump-started her literary career, The House of the Spirits, but with far less supernatural elements and a more expansive engagement of revolution, exile and the determination of the human spirit. . . . A page-turning story rich with history and surprising subplots that keep the novel unpredictable to the end. Los Angeles Times

Isabel Allende s A Long Petal of the Sea gets to the heart of immigrant struggle. . . . [It] begins, as it ends, with the heart. . . . Victor and Roser s story is compelling. . . . Allende s prose is both commanding and comforting. The author writes eloquently on the struggle of letting go of one culture to embrace a new one and shows that one s origin story is not the whole story. . . . While debate and policy surround the issues of refugees and immigration, Allende reminds us that these issues, at their core, are made up of individuals and their love stories. USA Today…mehr
