Internationally acclaimed author Isabel Allende describes her lifelong feminism. The audiobook begins with her experiences as a child witnessing her mother's attempts to provide for her three children after being abandoned by Isabel's father. Her story then moves through the feminist movement of the 1960s, her three subsequent marriages, and the effects of feminism on the lives of her children and grandchildren. Narrator Gisela Chípe's rendering of the text is confident and resolute yet conveys Allende's tenderness as well as her passion. The Brazilian-born Ecuadorian-American Chípe provides a natural pronunciation of the Spanish words and names sprinkled throughout. One might wonder why Allende herself did not narrate this personal work, but Chípe provides a clear and accessible narration that aptly conveys the author's passionate life. S.E.G.
