Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende

Aurora del Valle has always lived in secret, living with her late father's aristocratic and extravagant mother she was kept in the dark from knowing about her parents and maternal grandparents. Although she enjoys privileges and freedom uncommon in those days, she remains haunted by nightmares about the early years of her life. After the death of her grandmother and a heart-breaking betrayal she sets out to find the truth about her family's history in attempt to put a halt to the nightmares. In the form of a memoir, "Portrait in Sepia" grips the reader from beginning to end in a realistic story of family turmoil and secrecy. This book was well written i thought with charming character and plot line.
