Portrait in Sepia
Book #71 Read in 2013
Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende
This book is a family saga book. Aurora tells the story of her family--past and present. Her family members are interesting and complex people who have lived interesting lives. Aurora is also trying to figure out some things about her past and hopes by detailing the histories of her family members, things will be clarified for her. This book was a bit slow in parts but Allende's lush writing style and unique characters saved it for me.
