Hija de la fortuna

Eda de su amante en una tierra de hombres solos y prostitutas atraídos por la fiebre del oro transforman Hija de eBook #10003 a la joven inocente en una mujer fuera de lo común Eliza recibe ayuda y afecto de Tao Chi'en un médico chino uien la conducirá de la man Rather than an objective evaluation of this novel as a work of literary fiction this rating and review is a reflection of how deeply it has continued to affect me over the years Despite the differences of time and place customs and traditions exposure and beliefs there is something very primitive about the bonds I share with Eliza Sommers And to some extent to the English colony in Valparaiso Chile where this story is set in the first half of the 19th century I am too strongly affected by my affiliation to Eliza to condemn this novel to what it truly is though I will deal with that part too It has struck too deep a chord in my heart so consider this as much a disclaimer for what is to come as an admission of my deviation from objectivityI read this first in 2007 and though with repeated readings I almost know it by heart I keep on revisiting it in my uest to draw strength from obscure invisible intangible sources It is about a girl growing wings in a cage that is supposed to keep them clipped Some birds are simply not meant to fly in others eyes The bird will sing in its native tongue perhaps a song of anguish which its captors will take for one of joy For the bird is supposed to entertain not to be entertained To comfort not to be comforted But people forget that a clipped bird no longer sings It only croons Or refuses to sing at allWe enter Valparaiso a British Colony on the Chilean coast in the early 1800s where women went about in stiff corsets learning piano and housekeeping straining their lungs out to be sweet capable subservient Men as Mama Fresia the Mapucho cook of the Sommers family warned Eliza did what they pleased to women so that the honor of the women was solely at the discretion of her own self While Eliza an orphan brought up by the Sommers begins to grow invisible wings defiant of the stifling customs in her own silent stubborn way it falls to Rose the sole woman in the family to keep an eye on her following her own indiscretion at the age of 18 with a German composer that had sentenced her to singlehood in a foreign country where she secretly mourned the conseuences of stepping out of the line of decencyWith Eliza unwittingly following the same course in the throes of young passionate love and her lover Joauin Andieta a poor man fired with the ideas of revolution and a poet at heart leaving Chile for California to try his luck in the Gold Rush Rose descends into her own memories of her first wild love Determined to pull Eliza out she realizes it is too late for Eliza has disappeared and is most probably following her loverIt is Eliza s four year long journey in an inhospitable unruly wild but free land that shapes her and makes her fully aware of what she is Dressed as a mute boy with Tao Chi en the Chinese healer mourning for his dead beloved wife Lin Eliza heads out to find in the anonymous masses her lover embarking on a journey that will not take her to him in the way she had wished The journey of the search for her love transforms gradually into a journey of self discovery of little by little discarding the vestiges and bondages of the cage that constrained her Her uest for reuniting with her man leads her to him but in ways she had never imagined when she started out pregnant with his baby at the age of sixteen She finds her love but it turns out to be very different from that of her dreamsWhat interested me most were the uick pace of the work the historical fiction aspect of it and the feminist slant to it Although I don t dislike Austen I m not particularly fond of her either she writes way better than Allende because I cannot relate to any of her heroines they come across as stereotypes to me which I m not very sympathetic to Allende s writing is modest I surely do not consider it her strong point But it is for the most part simple but adeuate in its pace and devoid of lofty pretensions Or maybe it is just the translation which makes it a bit bland for my liking maybe the original in Spanish is far better So I m inclined to give it the benefit of doubtShe ties the strands expertly not allowing for logical lapses which are another pet peeve of mine I prefer stories that do not flag rationally The characterization I thought was the best part to me Eliza hadn t changed at all though she had changed a lot it happened so slowly by degrees it didn t feel artificial though at some points it did seem a bit rushed But there were some pointed observations that resonate with me even now Oh her words haunt me day and night even before I d read them because I live with them from day to day straining to break free They are my invisible cages that I beat and break my wings against Even if they sound so ordinary It is man s nature to be savage it is woman s destiny to preserve moral values and good conduct Jeremy Sommers pontificated Really brother You and I both know that my nature is savage than yours Rose would joke People are beginning to ask uestions and Eliza surely imagines a future that does not befit her Nothing as perilous you know as the demon of fantasy embedded in every female heart Technically there are uite a lot flaws there is hardly any sub text to decipher and enjoy nor a lyrical captivating narration And yet it captivated me because Eliza mirrored me I found myself when I stared into her eyes Eliza Sommers I open your pages when I find myself blank And I d almost wept at the recognition when Rose told you I would happily give half my life to have the freedom a man has Eliza But we are women and that is our cross All we can do is try to get the best from the little we have But I don t intend to be a Rose Eliza I d rather be you
