Doña Inés Suárez, nacida en España, proveniente de una familia pobre, sobrevive a diario trabajando como costurera. Es el siglo dieciséis y la conquista de América está comenzando. Un día el esposo de Inés desaparece rumbo al Nuevo Mundo, ella aprovecha para partir en busca de él y escapar de su vida claustrofóbica que lleva en su tierra natal. Su accidentado viaje la lleva a Perú, donde al llegar se entera que su esposo ha muerto en una batalla. Al poco tiempo Inés comienza una apasionada relación con Pedro Valdivia, hombre que le cambia la vida por completo. Pedro Valdivia es un valiente héroe de guerra y mariscal de Francisco Pizarro.

Uno de los sueños de Valdivia es triunfar donde españoles han fracasado, llevando a cabo la conquista de Chile. Juntos los amantes fundan la cuidad de Santiago de Chile y lideran una guerra sangrienta contra los indígenas chilenos, en una lucha que cambiara sus vidas para siempre.

Basada en una investigación meticulosa, y contada con la pasión y el extraordinario talento narrativo de Isabel Allende, Inés del Alma Mía es una obra de impresionante magnitud.

Listener Opinions

    " This historical fiction was fascinating. I learned a lot but this time period is not for the faint hearted. The Spanish and Natives treatment of each other was horrific. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gianna | 2/17/2014

    " Isabel Allende is one of my favorite authors and I always enjoy her works. As with previous books of hers, I find myself having to re-read passages because I get so caught up in what she is describing that I miss the plot development. It makes me want to learn how to make empanadas! Allende is a magnificent storyteller and while this isn't my favorite book of hers, it's still a joy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celia | 2/8/2014

    " My first experience reading Isabel Allende's work was House of the Spirits, many years ago. I found that book fascinating, in a beautiful, sensuous, ethereal way. This book is very different. It is an historical account of the colonization of Chile by the Spaniards, but told by a very strong woman. Ines is a wonderful female character, strong, no-nonsense, but very sensual. The battle scenes were graphic and brutal, but overall, a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan | 2/7/2014

    " I have always liked Allende, and have taken a break lately. This new book has revived me. It is excellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chandra | 1/22/2014

    " An amazingly woven tale based on the life of Ines Suarez, who made her way from Spain to the New World and found herself on the expedition to help found the colony of Chile. Allende brings obvious in-depth research to life and spares no detail of the difficulties and wonders of life in 16th century South America. Suarez makes a fascinating heroine, strong, passionate, determined in the face of obstacles and inspired to be part of something greater than herself along side the men she loved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Etian Contreras | 1/20/2014

    " I loved this book. It gave me another insight on this particular period in Latin American history. As a chilean It was important for me to read this story. Very well told by one of the great masters in Latin America's literature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacie | 1/16/2014

    " I always have loved her book and how she weaves history into a fiction novel. "

    " One word. Boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thalia Orozco G | 1/14/2014

    " La historia conquista "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaile Wakeman | 1/3/2014

    " An exposition of South American history--writing style stilted an a self conscious effort to write in the style of the day which was off putting. I have enjoyed some of her other books--especially the memoir of her daughter called Paula. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 1/1/2014

    " The history was interesting but it was pretty greusome and I got lost in the dates "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glorious.Clio | 12/31/2013

    " One of my favorite of Allende's books. I love love love Ines and her spunk and strength and intelligence. She's just amazing and empowering to watch. <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany Peters | 12/20/2013

    " Tons of historical information about spanish conquistadors in the new world make this book educational, as well as entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Barbara | 12/18/2013

    " Exciting historical fiction, well-written, as always from Allende. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate S | 12/5/2013

    " I am a fan of this author and I enjoyed this book - however - I would recommend "Daughter of Fortune" and "House of the Spirits" if you are interested in Allende. This one had a little too much 'war' for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 3/30/2013

    " Interesting historical novel but ends kind of abruptly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 12/20/2012

    " An account of one woman's strength, and ability to lead, teach, and endear her peers to herself; set in the time of Spanish settling of South America...Inez is a compelling character who continually rises like a phoenix from ashes of destruction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zeenat | 10/8/2012

    " I loved this book. A real eye opener about the conquest of Chile. "

    " A love story I want to live "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kb | 5/17/2012

    " While it's awesome to learn about a 16th century woman I had no clue existed, it's hard for me to stomach the Spanish conquest of the Americas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aurora | 3/28/2012

    " Adventures, intrigue, and strong women: classic Allende "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia Hilton | 12/5/2011

    " I've always had a bit of a weakness for historical fiction and this one was so well done that I really enjoyed it. It's a denser read than most novels, but worth every extra minute. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlo Licheri | 9/11/2011

    " Il finale di questo bel romanzo (basato sui fatti storici che portarono alla fondazione del Cile) mi ha leggermente straziato. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Enid | 7/16/2011

    " Historical ficgtion of founding of Chile. Allende is excellent. Violent story, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 5/13/2011

    " Ines' life and struggles begin in Spain and follow an adventurous man to the Americas, Panama, then Chile to found a nation in spite of ferocious natives. As always her characters are strong and compelling, the history of Allende's native land very interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 5/13/2011

    " Read like a hybrid memoir/historical fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sarah t | 5/12/2011

    " Entertaining historical fiction about the conquest of Chile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla | 5/1/2011

    " I loved this book. It was much more meaningful to me since I lived in Santiago, Chile, for several years. I was excited to recognize places and names. Allende writes so well. There is violence in the story, but well told and of historical importance. An excellent read.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 4/21/2011

    " Fascinating historical fiction with a strong female character! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 4/5/2011

    " I enjoyed this. It was well-written and interesting. The imagery was vivid and the characters well-developed. There are some "racy" bits, so be warned. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 4/3/2011

    " I love Isabel Allende, but not this book. It took forever to get used to the choppy narrative and by then the story was basically over. The interesting historical setting/events is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ma&pa | 3/14/2011

    " Aparte de "La casa de los espiritus" y "Paula" éste es el libro de Isabel Allende que mas me ha gustado. Trata en forma novelada la vida de doña Inés de Suárez y la época de la colonia.
    Muy bien escrito, muy entretenido y conmovedor.
