OF LOVE AND SHADOWS by ISABEL
ALLENDE
Set in a country of arbitrary arrests, sudden disappearances and summary
executions, Isabel Allende’s magical new novel tells of the passionate affair
of two people prepared to risk everything for the sake of justice and truth.
Irene Beltran, a reporter, comes from a wealthy background; Francisco Leal, a
young photographer secretly engaged in undermining the military dictatorship,
is strongly attracted by her beauty. It does not matter that Irene’s fiance
is an army captain: each time Francisco accompanies her on a magazine
assignment, he falls more deeply in love with her.When they go to investigate
the mysterious case of Evangelina Ranquileo, a girl suffering from
spectacular fits which are rumoured to have miraculous powers, the arrival of
soldiers adds a sinister aspect to the mystery. And then Evangelina
disappears. Irene and Francisco, in trying to trace her and indict the Junta,
become engulfed in a vortex of terror and violence.
