"par excellence"

I have started reading "Isabel Allende's" new book
Island Beneath the Sea..

I know i wont put it down .. it is going to be intriguing..

I think she a most excellent author., and amongst my favorites. Her books are gripping and i transend into the place she is writing about at the time. I close my eyes and imagine the people she writes about. They become real to me..

Not only is she beautiful and talented.. Also the cousin of Salvador Allende..

Writing is a process, a journey into memory and the soul.. "quote" Isabel Allende

wishing you all a happy Thursday..
