Summer reading: Daughter of Fortune

Book cover for Daughter of Fortune

Daughter of Fortune
Isabel Allende

In this novel the main character goes through a major transformation in who she is as she travels during the Gold Rush from Chile to California, which were essentially two different worlds. This is an amazing book that I have read many times and it covers an interesting time in California history from a woman’s perspective.
