“Past and present collide in Allende's new novel. Alma Belasco flees the Nazi incursion in Poland and is raised in her aunt and uncle's home in San Francisco. Alma and Ichimei Fukuda, the gardener's son, have an instant connection but are separated when he is sent to a Japanese internment camp. Years later, while fleeing her own past, Irina Bazili begins work at Alma's retirement home and finds herself caught up in the intrigue and delicate mystery that is Alma's great love. Once again, Allende's unique ability to bring forth light from the darkest recesses of humanity highlights the strength and courage it takes to live -- and love.”
