    Portrait in Sepia is Isabel Allende s middle book in a trilogy linking Daughter of Fortune to House of the Spirits Sepia is the memoir of Aurora Lai Ming Del Valle, the granddaughter of both Paulina Del Valle and Eliza Sommers The bulk of the story begins when Aurora is five years old, and Eliza Sommers, recently widowed, has decided to give Aurora to Paulina Del Valle to raise Paulina ecstatic at finally having a girl to pamper agrees on the condition that Eliza no longer contacts the girl Within a year the Del Valles relocate from San Francisco to Santiago de Chile, creating a black hole of memories which Aurora carries for the rest of her life The Chile that the Del Valles return to is much like the country we know in House of the Spirits full of political upheaval and civil wars Here we meet Severo and Nivea Del Valle, Paulina s favorite nephew and niece and the parents of Clara the clairvoyant Severo and Nivea already have political ambitions here, and once Aurora is grown, Nivea becomes her closest confidante I would have liked for Allende to provide a touch backstory to Clara and her siblings so that the bridge to House of the Spirits would have been seamless Yet, this is Aurora s story, so we do not meet Clara, although she is born late in this book Paulina raises Aurora in a pampered, cultured life, allowing her to be tutored at home rather than school At age 13 she becomes the photography apprentice to Don Juan Ribero, and Aurora quickly masters the trade Because Paulina is two generations in the past, she feels photography will damage Aurora s marriage prospects so they embark on a two year voyage to Europe, both for Paulina s health and to find Aurora a suitable upper crust husband.While in England, the Del Valles encounter the charming Dr Ivan Radovic Paulina is captivated by his modern medical ideas but does not view him as husband material for Aurora because he is not of the upper class Meanwhile at a societal ball Paulina finds Diego Dominguez of an old Chilean land owning family Although his family appears backward thinking to Aurora, her grandmother practically forces them into marriage, against the better thoughts of practically everyone else concerned for Aurora s well being In anticipation of the marriage, Aurora s black hole dreams return Part III focuses on Aurora s marriage to Diego Dominguez and briefly touches on Paulina setting up Severo and Nivea Del Valle in a vineyard enterprise before her death Like in the other Allende books I ve read there is a twist at the end that provides the reader with an aha moment There is still some magical realism although not at the levels of Allende s other books, and it is still the sweeping epic I enjoy full of many beloved character however, after Daughter of Fortune, this was a bit of a let down The story serves as a bridge to link Eliza Sommers to Clara del Valle Trueba and the bridge was not seamless Some of the writing felt forced because Clara s story had already been written Yet, less than stellar Allende is still among my favorite and I m glad that I read this as it became than a posterity read Should I read the trilogy again, it will most definitely be in chronological order 4 stars
