Yes, it is a memoir, but not a linear memoir. Not only does Allende look at her own life and how she’s been a feminist even as a child, but she also looks at atrocities committed attains women around the world. She grew up with a single mom. After Allende’s dad disappeared, her mother was forced to move in with Allende’s grandfather. Allende watch women being victimized from an early age and was determined to create her world rather than submit to what others felt she should do. While the story rambles at time, Allende accomplished her goal of defending feminists around the world.

Since Isabel Allende write in Spanish, it’s almost fair that the library have Spanish copies for the Spanish speakers. We don’t like to loose the spirit of the language and culture in the translation.
