The Pequod Review:

The Sum of our Days is an intimate and tragic memoir of Isabel Allende‚Äôs life following the death of her daughter thirteen years earlier. The best parts of the book recount the immigrant experience of her extended family, who fled the Pinochet regime in the 1970s for Marin County, California, and found meaning in the discourse of psychotherapy and New Age spirituality.
