Publisher's Summary

La nueva novela de Isabel Allende. La historia de amor entre la joven Alma Velasco y el jardinero japonés Ichimei conduce al lector por un recorrido a través de diversos escenarios que van desde la Polonia de la Segunda Guerra Mundial hasta el San Francisco de nuestros días. "A los veintidós años, sospechando que tenían el tiempo contado, Ichimei y Alma se atragantaron de amor para consumirlo entero, pero mientras más intentaban agotarlo, más imprudente era el deseo, y quien diga que todo fuego se apaga solo tarde o temprano, se equivoca: hay pasiones que son incendios hasta que las ahoga el destino de un zarpazo y aun así quedan brasas calientes listas para arder apenas se les da oxígeno."

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Bonita historia, pero nada es lo que piensas,

Dos personas que se aman, en dos clases sociales diferentes.
No se dejan vencer, love it

Like the gardenia . . .

Intense, eternal, beautiful, fragile. Another masterpiece by Isabel Allende. I highly recommend this novel, I just couldn't put it down!

Simplemente hermoso

Elegí este libro primeramente por Jane Santos. Desde que la escuché en La Isla Bajo el Mar de Allende, su voz me cautivó. Este libro es hermoso primero por su narradora, y segundo por la bella historia de amor y otras cosas. Isabel Allende sabe cómo llegar al corazón con este tipo de historias.

Una buena historia

Buen libro, pero no se compara con otros como La isla bajo el mar or Hija de la fortuna y Retrato en sepia que son mis favoritos.

Just another book

Nothing remarkable about this book .
The reader didn’t know when to stop or begin a sentence , it was like listening to someone that can sound the written words but doesn’t know what they mean , also didn’t know how to pronounce some words in Spanish .

Not what I was expecting

I didn't know what the book was about, just that it was recommended to me. I was very caught up with the story and I really liked it.

el amante japonés

la historia es buena, la narradora también. me gusta el retrato de las condiciones de la vejez, desde otro punto de vista.
