ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
1939. Alla fine della Guerra civile spagnola, il giovane medico Víctor Dalmau e un’amica di famiglia, la pianista Roser Bruguera, sono costretti, come altre migliaia di spagnoli, a scappare da Barcellona. Attraversati i Pirenei, a Bordeaux, fingendosi sposati, riescono a imbarcarsi a bordo del Winnipeg, il piroscafo preso a noleggio da Pablo Neruda per portare più di duemila profughi spagnoli in Cile – il “lungo petalo di mare e neve”, nelle parole dello stesso poeta –, in cerca di quella pace che non è stata concessa loro in patria. Lì hanno la fortuna di essere accolti con generosa benevolenza e riescono presto a integrarsi, a riprendere in mano le loro vite e a sentirsi parte del destino del paese, solo però fino al golpe che nel 1973 fa cadere il presidente Salvador Allende. E allora, ancora una volta, si ritroveranno in esilio, questa volta in Venezuela, ma, come scrive l’autrice, “se si vive abbastanza, i cerchi si chiudono”.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
September 3, 1939, the day of the Spanish exiles' splendid arrival in Chile, the Second World War broke out in Europe.Victor Dalmau is a young doctor when he is caught up in the Spanish Civil War, a tragedy that leaves his life - and the fate of his country - forever changed. Together with his sister-in-law, the pianist Roser, he is forced out of his beloved Barcelona and into exile. When opportunity to seek refuge arises, they board a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda to Chile, the promised 'long petal of sea and wine and snow'. There, they find themselves enmeshed in a rich web of characters who come together in love and tragedy over the course of four generations, destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world.A masterful work of historical fiction that soars from the Spanish Civil War to the rise and fall of Pinochet, "A Long Petal Of The Sea" is Isabel Allende masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile and belonging.
