Book discussion: Daughter of Fortune

Monday, August 14, 2017 (All day)

The next book for discussion will be Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, August 14:

  • at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
  • and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

An orphan raised in Valparaiso, Chile, by a Victorian spinster and her brother, vivacious young Eliza Sommers follows her lover to California during the 1849 Gold Rush. 

Entering a rough-and-tumble world of new arrivals driven mad by gold fever, Eliza moves in a society of single men and prostitutes with the help of her good friend and savior, the Chinese doctor Tao Chi'en. California opens the door to a new life of freedom and independence, and the search for her elusive lover gradually turns into a different journey.
