This profoundly moving tale of love, bravery, and tragedy by New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende brings to life a country ruled with an iron fist--and the men and women who dare to challenge it. Irene Beltran is a force to be reckoned with. As a magazine journalist, an unusual profession for a woman with her privileged upbringing, she is constantly challenging the oppressive regime. Her investigative partner is photographer Francisco Leal, the son of impoverished Spanish Marxist emigres. Together, they are an inseparable team and--despite Irene's engagement to an army captain--form a passionate connection. When an assignment leads them to uncover an unspeakable crime, they are determined to reveal the truth in a nation overrun by terror and violence. Together, they will risk everything for justice--and, ultimately, to embrace the passion that binds them.

Reviews

Isabel Allende is a writer of deep conviction, but she knows that in the end it is people, not issues, who matter most. 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. --Jonathan Yardley "The Washington Post "" "Isabel Allende is a writer of deep conviction, but she knows that in the end it is people, not issues, who matter most.
