Description
The author of My Invented Country and Daughter of Fortune here weaves a dashing novel of Chile's founding mother, Doña Inés Suárez (1507–1580), filling the gaps between the historical facts of her life and dramatizing her momentous second marriage to Don Pedro de Valdivia, with whom she founded the city of Santiago. A spirited heroine, Inés narrates her story at the end of her life, from her youth in Spain—which she fled on the pretext of finding her errant first husband in the New World—to her final marriage to Rodrigo de Quiroga.

"The two lovers [Inés and Valdivia] aim to found a new society based on Christian and egalitarian principles that Valdivia later finds hard to reconcile with his personal desire for glory. Inés proves herself not only a capable helpmate and a worthy cofounder of a nation, but also a ferocious fighter who both captivates and frightens her fellow settlers.... Basing the tale on documented events of her heroine's life, [Isabel] Allende crafts a swift, thrilling epic, packed with fierce battles and passionate romance."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
