Last year, in 2020, we all were held down in our homes away from work and all sorts of transportations because of the lockdown. As you all might already know, it was because of the spread of the fatal Corona Virus and thus, the government declared a pandemic. All this while, this has boosted up the stability of Isabel Allende by clearing up most of her schedules, and thus, she got plenty of time to do what she is excellent in. Back on the 2nd of March 2021, the author put her memoir called ‘The Soul of a Woman’ on sale. Also, she has promised fans that by the end of this year, she is also coming up with another novel.
Isabel – What does the author has to say about her series?
Back on the 8th of January, news broke out in public that Isabel has started working on a very new line of books. Also, you guys should keep in mind that this is not just any ordinary date.

While Isabel was sharing about the new show about her, she also disclosed how it is her schedule to start the day early and get in the shower by 6 am. All this while, the creators did not take any sort of help from the world-famous author for the making of this series. According to Isabel, they might have adopted the source and the content that is mentioned in her previous works such as Paula as well as The Sum of Our Days. The project has been directed by Rodrigo Bazaes while its production has been done by Mega media Chile.
While talking about the creators, Isabel said that she does not stand against anything that they have put into the show based on what they depicted because it was all written in her books herself. Isabel says that the creators have made a very respectable piece about the paths she opted for in her life but they did not keep all the bad bits about her a secret. Appraising how the series has turned out to be, Isabel also revealed the special requests that she wanted to be kept in mind. She did not want to expose the lives of the people around her, such as family as well as friends because they also have a right to their privacy.
