This is another excellent Isabel Allende book. I enjoyed Ines' story and learning more about the early days of conquistadores in South America. My only quibble with the book has to do with the narration. Blair Brown is a fine actress and I have enjoyed her other audio books. Here she uses a faux Spanish accent and it doesn't work! She mispronounces the words "empanadas" and "governador" over and over again, along with other words. I cringed every time and it distracted me from the storytelling.

I think the listener would be better off hearing Ms. Brown use her "normal" accent or have the producers' employ someone with a legitimate Spanish accent.

Not my favorite work of hers, but a readable, interesting work of historical fiction about the common law wife of the conquistador of Chile.

Allende undoubtedly is a superb writer, but I couldn't warm up to Ines.

Very engaging historical fiction. Wonderful narration in a first person account. Paints a vivid picture of Peru and Chile in the mid-16th century.

Extremely long, painfully detailed. My favorite parts are those that describe the personal relationships of the charactors. For me there was far too much of the book that had nothing to do with that but instead describes war, travel, violence, starvation, death, cruelty. etc. in extreme detail.

Narration by Blair Brown is outstanding.
