Tough Woman Fleeing Trouble

Nineteen-year-old Maya is sent by her fiercely devoted grandmother to live in an idyllic, insular island town off the coast of Chile in Isabelle Allende's Maya's Notebook. Here she leans on the support of a limping stray dog and a stoic writer to heal the wounds of her teenage years. As Maya recovers on the island, Allende weaves in a blistering portrait of her runaway history in Las Vegas, where she sank into drugs, crime, and prostitution.   With Allende's almost poetic writing, the present charms and the past rivets leaving readers enchanted with this story.
