In the Midst of Winter

51aOagP8zZL._SY346_.jpgI’m a big fan of Isabel Allende and have read most of her books. I was lucky enough to find In the Midst of Winter on the shelf at the library. It was a good story, but not great. On a blizzard-y evening, Richard, hits a car driven by an illegal immigrant, Evelyn. He gives her his card so insurance can cover the damage. She comes to find him later that night to explain that she is in trouble because in the trunk of the car is the dead body of the physical therapist who helps the son of her abusive boss. Richard’s tenant also gets involved. In the midst of telling their story, we also learn the history of each character. It could have been shorter, particularly the history of each individual, but overall, it was enjoyable.
