Bestseller returns with In the Midst of Winter

NEW York Times bestseller and master storyteller Isabel Allende's In the Midst of Winter is a beautifully crafted, multi-generational novel of struggle, endurance and friendship against the odds.

Amid the biggest Brooklyn snowstorm in living memory, an unexpected friendship blossoms between three people thrown together by circumstance.

Richard Bowmaster, a lonely university professor in his sixties, hits the car driven by Evelyn Ortega, a young, undocumented migrant from Guatemala.

But what at first seems an inconvenience takes an unforeseen and darker turn when Evelyn comes to him and his neighbour Lucia Maraz, desperately seeking help.

Sweeping from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala to turbulent 1970s Chile and Brazil, and woven with Isabel Allende's trademark humanity, passion and storytelling verve, In the Midst of Winter is a mesmerising and unforgettable tale.

Allende is the author of international bestsellers The House of the Spirits and The Japanese Lover.

Published by Simon and Schuster, In the Midst of Winter is available in bookstops and ebook. RRP $39.99.
