Chile with Daughter of Fortune

Screen Shot 2016-09-04 at 10.50.33 AM“She had the clear sensation of beginning a new story in which she was both protagonist and narrator.”–Isabel Allende, Daughter of Fortune

  • Here’s what happens:
    • This is the story of Eliza, a Chilean orphan taken in by British immigrants and raised as an aristocrat despite rumors and prejudices about her native origins and unorthodox adoption. She grows up to be an independent and unconventional trailblazer in search of love and happiness–on her own terms.
  • It’s good because:
    • Eliza is a powerful and flawed heroine, whose strength and wildness make her an appealing protagonist.
  • Read if:
    • You enjoy historical fiction written with a strong sense of irony and bold feminist messages.
