Sum of our days. Isabel Allende. 2008.

Regular price $6.00

On a rainy December day in 1992, Isabel Allende and her family went to the forest near their home in Northern California to scatter her daughter Paula’s ashes to the wind.

The Sum of Our Days recounts the intimate and heartfelt story of what happened to them in the years that followed Paula’s death, as they reconstruct their lives following that tragic loss. In her luscious but precise prose, Allende weaves a narrative from the lives of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded and eclectic tribe she gathers around her. She reveals the extraordinary stories behind her books, the superstitions that guide her writing process, her adventurous travels-and her own inner world.
