Description
 
Isabel Allende parte de la clebre cita de Albert Camus -en medio del invierno aprend por fin que haba en m un verano invencible- para urdir una trama que presenta la geografa humana de unos personajes propios de la Amrica de hoy que se hallan en el ms profundo invierno de sus vidas: una chilena, una joven guatemalteca indocumentada y un maduro norteamericano. Los tres sobreviven a un terrible temporal de nieve que cae en pleno invierno sobre Nueva York y acaban aprendiendo que ms all del invierno hay sitio para el amor inesperado y para el verano invencible que siempre ofrece la vida cuando menos se espera.

Ms all del invierno es una de las historias ms personales de Isabel Allende: una obra absolutamente actual que aborda la realidad de la emigracin y la identidad de la Amrica de hoy a travs de unos personajes que encuentran la esperanza en el amor y en las segundas oportunidades.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

New York Times and worldwide bestselling author Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil that offers "a timely message about immigration and the meaning of home" (People).

During the biggest Brooklyn snowstorm in living memory, Richard Bowmaster, a lonely university professor in his sixties, hits the car of Evelyn Ortega, a young undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, and what at first seems an inconvenience takes a more serious turn when Evelyn comes to his house, seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant, Lucia Maraz, a fellow academic from Chile, for her advice.

As these three lives intertwine, each will discover truths about how they have been shaped by the tragedies they witnessed, and Richard and Lucia will find unexpected, long overdue love. Allende returns here to themes that have propelled some of her finest work: political injustice, the art of survival, and the essential nature of--and our need for--love.
