Of Love and Shadows by Isabel AllendeOf Love and Shadows is a novel by Isabel Allende. Francisco is the son of a Marxist professor. Irene and Francisco travel on a magazine-assignment to a farm in Los Riscos to do a story about an extraordinary girl, named Evangelina Ranquileo, who is rumored to have strange psychic powers. Evangelina has convulsive attacks that occur at noon each day. During her attacks, the utensils dance in the cupboard, and a clatter is heard on the roof like a hailstorm. The rumor has spread that Evangelina has strange psychic powers, and farm people are coming to the home of the Ranquileo family, requesting her to heal them of their afflictions, and asking her to perform miracles. On the day that Irene and Francisco arrive, an army troop led by Lieutenant Juan de Dios Ramirez comes to the home of the Ranquileo family.
