Year 12, Book 80

80. In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende

Richard is a sixty something widower who rents a downstairs apartment in his house to Evelyn, a divorced Chilean professor. During a snowstorm Richard has a fender bender with a young undocumented Guatemalan woman named Evelyn. He thinks nothing of it at the time until Evelyn shows up on his doorstep looking for help. At a loss for what to do with her Richard seeks out Lucia’s assistance sending the three of the on an unlikely journey together.

This book took a real turn about a third of the way in and didn’t wind up being the book I thought I was reading when I started it. I don’t really want to say much else about it because I don’t want to give anything away. I give it a 7 out of 10.
