Just in time for those Christmas wish lists, Jo Nesbo, Gillian Flynn, Janet Evanovich, Stephen King, Mitch Albom and Kevin Costner(?) all have new books coming out in November, but titles from Isabel Allende and Umberto Eco are amongst the 10 book releases that have particularly caught my eye.
Isabel Allende’s Of Love and Shadows is a story of courage and passion that will stay with you long after reading.
Allende’s prose is so luxurious and versatile, switching from heart-stopping action sequences to magical moments of reflection and contemplation with ease. The story is also cloaked in a mystical veil of South American folklore, reminiscent of the writing of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
