I really enjoy Isabel Allende, and know she's well versed in the tragic love story, but this has been a little different. I was hoping for a little more with the relationship, but it turned out just fine. I also liked a lot of her added info about America in that time period, and would be curious now to read more about it. ( )

Very good historical fiction literature set mostly during the gold rush in California. The coming-of-age story about a young Chilean girl that travels to San Francisco. It was interesting to read about the different cultures in San Fran in the mid-1800s. ( )

I do love a good historical fiction tale and Isabel Allende is a master of the genre so this was good read for me. I learned quite a lot about the California gold rush and even more about Chinese medicine which has been practised for quite a bit longer than western medicine.

Eliza Sommers was left as an infant on the doorstep of an English trader in Valparaiso Chile. Jeremy Sommers was a bachelor but lived with his sister Rose. Rose and Mama Fresia, the Chilean who supervised their household, raised Eliza between them. From Rose Eliza learned how to be a proper English lady but from Mama Fresia she learned about cooking and baking and healing with native herbs. When Eliza was just starting to notice men into her life came a poor clerk from Jeremy Sommers company. Joaquin Andieta was full of revolutionary ideas and had the heart of a poet. Of course Eliza fell madly in love with him. Secretly they met and made love. When the news of the 1849 California gold rush reached Valparaiso Joaquin saw this as his way to rise out of poverty so he could marry Eliza. Shortly after he left Eliza discovered she was pregnant. Confiding in Mama Fresia they found a way for Eliza to smuggle aboard a ship bound for California. The cook on the ship, Tao Chi'en, was persuaded to take her aboard and hide her in the hold. Tao Chi'en was not just a cook though; in Canton, China he had been trained as a physician, a zhong yi. When his aged mentor died Tao Chi'en left Canton for Hong Kong where he became quite renownes. He even had an English physician as a friend as so he learned about Western medicine as well. One evening he was shanghaied aboard a sailing ship on which he served for two years. When his contract ended he was in Valparaiso and so came into contact with Eliza. That was a fortuitous meeting for both of them. Eliza, especially, was lucky to have Tao Chi'en to look after her when she had a miscarriage and nearly died on board. They stayed together for a while in San Francisco but Eliza was determined to find her lover so she travelled to the gold fields. She saw the lure gold had on the thousands who had travelled to California but she was never interested herself in trying to find gold. She also managed to avoid the fate of most of the other women there at that time by dressing as a boy and claiming to be Joaquin's younger brother. Tales of a highwayman named Joaquin spread like wildfire and Eliza travelled all over during the summer months trying to find him to see if it was her Joaquin. Meanwhile Tao Chi'en practised medicine. When he came into contact with the young Chinese girls serving in the brothels he was so upset at their condition that he decided to save as many as he could. Eliza and Tao Chi'en maintained communication through the somewhat unstable mail system. Eventually Eliza joined Tao in San Francisco and helped him in his endeavours but she continued to pursue all leads to Joaquin. It is clear to the reader that Eliza and Tao have more than just friendly feelings for each other but they are both in thrall to the memory of their lost loves.

I've read five other books by Allende. Not all of them are historical fiction but I think those are the ones I like the best. According to Wikipedia she has written 21 books; I think I'll have to read some more. ( )

I'm a fan of Isabel Allende's work, but reading this felt like reading a couple of her other novels. ( )

Everyone is born with some special talent, and Eliza Sommers discovered early on that she had two: a good sense of smell and a good memory.

Svarbiausia yra tai, kaip gyveni šiame pasaulyje, o ne tai, kaip į jį atėjai; Sakė, jog žinios be išminties neturi vertės, ir nėra išminties be dvasingumo, o tikrasis dvasingumas visada reikalauja tarnauti kitiems; Mokytojo nuomone, blogai, kai žmogus nesugeba kurti eilių, bet nepalyginimai blogiau, kai kuria neišmanydamas.
It is what you do in this world that matters, not how you come into it.
The things we forget may as well never have happened, but she had many memories, both real and illusory, and that was like living twice.
He had only a vague idea of her size and of a dark aureole of hair, but it would not be until their second meeting a few days later that he would sink into the perdition of her black eyes and the watery grace of her gestures.
Eliza's legs were trembling; she hadn't used them in two months, and she felt as landsick as she had before at sea, but the man's clothing gave her an unfamiliar freedom; she had never felt so invisible.
