"Portrait in Sepia is the best book Allende has published in the United States since her first novel of nearly two decades ago, The House of the Spirits."
--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World
"Portrait in Sepia tightens the weave of a multigenerational fantasy as complete and inspiring as the real world it parallels ... Allende's enchanting historical universe keeps expanding and Portrait in Sepia is a new galactic jewel."
A richly imagined historical novel about memory and family secrets from the New York Times bestselling author of Island Beneath the Sea, Ines of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, Zorro, and House of the Spirits.
"Rich and complex ... Allende exercises her supreme storytelling abilities ... a grand installment in an already impressive repertoire."
-Publishers Weekly (* Starred Review *)
"Complex, intriguing, ambitious … it's Allende's remarkable flair for character that makes it all come alive."
“Portrait in Sepia is rich with color and emotion and packed with intriguing characters.”
-San Francisco Chronicle
