About the Author

Isabel Allende was born in 1942 in Lima, Peru, the daughter of a Chilean diplomat. When her parents separated, young Isabel moved with her mother to Chile, where she spent the rest of her childhood. She married at the age of 19 and had two children, Paula and Nicolas. Her uncle was Salvador mostrar mais Allende, the president of Chile. When he was overthrown in the coup of 1973, she fled Chile, moving to Caracas, Venezuela. While living in Venezuela, Allende began writing her novels, many of them exploring the close family bonds between women. Her first novel, The House of the Spirits, has been translated into 27 languages, and was later made into a film. She then wrote Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, and The Stories of Eva Luna, all set in Latin America. The Infinite Plan was her first novel to take place in the United States. She explores the issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees in her novel, In The Midst of Winter. In Paula, Allende wrote her memoirs in connection with her daughter's illness and death. She delved into the erotic connections between food and love in Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses. In addition to writing books, Allende has worked as a TV interviewer, magazine writer, school administrator, and a secretary at a U.N. office in Chile. She received the 1996 Harold Washington Literacy Award. She lives in California. Her title Maya's Notebook made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Resenhas

Em meio a uma nevasca no Brooklyn, Richard Bowmaster, um professor universitário de 60 anos, bate na traseira do carro de Evelyn Ortega, uma jovem imigrante ilegal da Guatemala. O que a princípio parecia apenas um pequeno incidente toma um rumo imprevisto e muito mais sério quando Evelyn aparece na casa do professor em busca de ajuda. Confuso com a situação e sem entender o espanhol falado pela jovem, ele pede ajuda a sua inquilina, Lucía Maraz, uma chilena de 62 anos, que está passando uma temporada nos Estados Unidos como palestrante na mesma universidade em que Richard leciona. Juntas, essas pessoas tão diferentes embarcam em uma dramática e incrível aventura, que vai do Brooklyn atual à Guatemela de um passado recente, do Chile dos anos 1970 ao Brasil dos anos 1980, e na qual descobrem sua força interior. Para Lucía e Richard, além de tudo, pode significar uma nova chance para o amor.

Explorando temas atemporais como direitos humanos e a difícil situação dos imigrantes, Muito além do inverno reflete sobre importantes questões da humanidade com paixão, humor e sabedoria.
