The Expressive Creatrix (and Hobbyist)











This book was about the conquering and colonization of Chile in the late 16th century focusing on one woman, Inés Suarez, lover and long-time companion of first man to establish a settlement in Chile, Santiago, Pedro de Valdivia.  Very interesting.  A piece of history I certainly knew nothing about.  Inés was a likable character and the writing was good.  I enjoyed it, but for some reason I sometimes found my attention wandering, and it felt like I wasn’t really into it.  I’m not sure why.  It took me a long time to read it, considering it’s not a very long book.  Hmm.

Anyway, I would recommend it.  I really despised the ending, but other than that, LOL, it’s a good read.
