Inés a sufletului meu

Inés a sufletului meu Scriitoarea chiliana Isabel Allende este o povestitoare fabuloasa, ale carei carti, traduse in peste treizeci de limbi, se vand in milioane de exemplare si au devenit bestselleruri pe patru continente.In anii treizeci ai secolului al XVI lea, tanara Ines Suarez se hotaraste sa paraseasca Spania Imbarcandu se pe un vas ce se indreapta spre Lumea Noua, Ines nu stie insa ca ii sta scris in stele sa deseneze pe harta lumii, impreuna cu misteriosul Pedro de Valdivia, conturul unei tari.Nimic nu parea sa o predestineze pe Ines Suarez, o croitoreasa spaniola frumusica si modesta, unei vieti iesite din comun Insa Ines se hotaraste sa si regaseasca sotul, plecat la razboi dincolo de Ocean, si astfel tanara ajunge in Americi, unde o asteapta o noua iubire, dar si o viata plina de lupte grele si rare momente de fericire Alaturi de capitanul Pedro de Valdivia, aceasta eroina a Spaniei de care istoria s a ocupat atat de putin ajunge adevarata intemeietoare a Regatului Chile Povestea de iubire dintre Pedro si Ines, ce dureaza mai bine de treizeci de ani, e traita cu intreaga disperare si intensitate conferite de o existenta mereu primejduita de iminenta unui raz boi cu indienii mapuche Trecand prin toate primejdiile imaginabile, convertindu se deopotriva in sfetnic, strateg, infirmiera improvizata, dar si in mama spirituala a colonistilor, Ines isi asuma un ultim rol, pe cel de cronicar al evenimentelor care au precedat intemeierea statului Chile, si isi relateaza povestea de dragoste si tradare.
