Description
The author of The Sum of Our Days and Portrait in Sepia, and the winner of the Chilean National Prize for Literature and the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award for her influential career, Isabel Allende penned this 1984 novel shortly after The House of the Spirits. A daughter of privilege in an unnamed Latin American country, engaged to an army captain, headstrong Irene Beltrán nonetheless works as a journalist for a women's magazine, along with photographer Francisco Leal, the son of Spanish Marxist émigrés. When this unlikely team uncovers a mass grave of people tortured and murdered by the police, they risk their lives to expose the corruption of their oppressive regime.

"The people in Of Love and Shadows are so real, their triumphs and defeats are so faithful to the truth of human existence, that we see the world in miniature. This is precisely what fiction should do."—Washington Post Book World

"Allende skillfully evokes both the terrors of daily life under military rule and the subtler forms of resistance in the hidden corners.... She can just as deftly depict loving tenderness as convey the high fire of eroticism. And when you've successfully mingled sex and politics with a noble cause, how can you go wrong?"—NYTBR
