Isabel Allende wrote The House of the Spirits in 1982. In it, the author tells the story of the Trueba family over the course of four generations, a period spanning nearly a century, in a country undergoing enormous socio-political changes that culminate in a devastating dictatorship. It is a saga of women whose names have something in common: light. Nívea, Clara, Blanca, Alba…

Alba is the one who reconstructs the story. There is a marvellous tension in this novel between memory, contradictions, violence and how one recovers a sense of reconciliation towards the things that happen in a country and in a family. Naturally, forgiveness is a part of that. And, basically, love. The entire work is like a labyrinth of history full of magical realism, in which one sees how politics hovers over people’s heads without us having anything to do with it.a.   Carme Portaceli
