July 11: In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende
In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accident in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. The accident becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives.
Exploring the timely issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees, the book recalls Allende’s landmark novel The House of the Spirits in the way it embraces the cause of “humanity, and it does so with passion, humor, and wisdom that transcend politics” (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post). In the Midst of Winter will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
