ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Brooklyn, ai giorni nostri. Durante una tempesta di neve, Richard Bowmaster, professore universitario spigoloso e riservato, tampona la macchina di Evelyn Ortega, una giovane donna immigrata illegalmente dal Guatemala. Quello che sembra solo un banale incidente prende tutt’altra piega quando Evelyn si presenta a casa del professore per chiedere aiuto. Smarrito, Richard si rivolge alla vicina, che conosce a malapena, Lucía Maraz, una matura donna cilena con una vita complicata alle spalle. Lucía, Evelyn e Richard, tre persone molto diverse tra loro, si ritrovano coinvolte in un thriller dalle conseguenze imprevedibili. Tre destini che Isabel Allende incrocia per dare vita a un romanzo mozzafiato e molto attuale sull’emigrazione e l’identità americana e la speranza che, oltre l’inverno, ci aspetti sempre un’invincibile estate.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. "In the Midst of Winter" begins with a minor traffic accident—which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives. Richard Bowmaster—a 60-year-old human rights scholar—hits the car of Evelyn Ortega—a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala—in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor’s house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz—a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile—for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a mesmerizing story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia.
