Download A Long Petal of the Sea: A Novel by Isabel Allende PDF - Synopsis: In the late 1930s, Spain's civil war grips. When General Franco and his Fascists succeed in overthrowing the government, hundreds of thousands are forced to flee in a treacherous journey over the mountains to the French border.  Among them is Roser, a pregnant young widow, who finds her life intertwined with that of Victor Dalmau, an army doctor and the brother of her deceased love. In order to survive, the two must unite in a marriage neither of them desires.

Together with two thousand other refugees, they embarked on the SS Winnipeg, a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda, to Chile: "the long petal of the sea and wine and snow." As possible partners, they embrace exile as the rest of Europe  erupts in world war. Starting over on a new continent, their trials are just the beginning, and over the course of their lives, they will face trial after trial.

But they will also find joy as they patiently wait for the day when they will be exiles no more. Through it all, they hope of returning to Spain to keep them going. Destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world, Roser and Victor will find that home might have been closer than they thought all along.

A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile, and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea shows Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.
