If ghosts were real, the Fremantle Round House would be teeming with them. Australian convicts built the forbidding walls, and after the prison outgrew it, mental patients were locked away within its stark cells. But preternatural activity? Any trepidation Wes usually displays while leading his tour through the tunnel beneath the Round House is pure theatrics—until the longtime partner he split with turns up, and ghost of their relationship rears its head. Can Chance help them resurrect the spirit of their lost love? A shiver of anticipation, and perhaps even the first stirrings of fear, ran through the crowd assembled at the steps that led up to the Fremantle Round House. Overlooking the port city, it still cut an imposing figure though it had long stood empty, the convicts that had constructed it nothing but dust in the ground by now. Maeve stood upon the weathered limestone steps, the streetlights below her casting up and throwing her face into shadow. Too many to count. Standing two steps above Maeve, Wes Jackson had to resist automatically rolling his eyes. Theatricality could help in a business like his—but there was theatricality, and then there was theatricality. And this woman put a capital T to theatricality. Mind you, the surroundings positively encouraged it. The Round House looked suitably spooky at night, and it never hurt that the knowledge of it being an old colonial prison demanded an expectation of a ghostly aura before you even got to inspect it properly.

The house of the spirits. Isabel Allende 21 ePub eBooks Collection. She reveals that Clara represents her own House of the Spirits started my love affair with Isabel Allende's writing twenty years ago. She reveals that Clara represents her own grandmother: she also had the gift of being clairvoyant and communicating with all the spirits that entered her home by way of a three-legged table and tarot cards.

Handed down this gift, Allende admits that she has had a number of meaningful dreams over the years that have influenced both her writing and family life. The opus detailed their family saga in both good times and bad, reflecting on how the same mistakes repeated themselves through the generations. This is most evident as Allende uses the same name over again for all four women in the family: Nivea, Clara, Blanca, Alba.

Each woman attempted to be as independent as her era allowed, yet falling for the society mores expected of an upper crust Chilean family. Allende may be known for her feminist leanings, but she creates a strong, memorable male lead in Esteban Trueba.

Reaching the ripe old age of ninety and telling this story alongside his grand-daughter Alba, Senator Trueba sees Chile rise, fall, and rise again. The country's hardships and successes mirror those of his own family as the Senator remains staunchly conservative even as the younger generations of his family opt for more liberal values.

Trueba in his role as patriarch sees how the world has changed and holds his family together as Chile crashes around them. Isabel fled Chile with her family and her writing has undergone changes since, depending on where she is on her life journey.

This saga remains my measuring stick against which all of her other books are rated.
