The book that inspired me lately: Violeta by Isabelle Allende. In this novel, the titular character emerges as a fiercely independent woman who forges her path in a patriarchal society. Violeta Del Valle defies societal expectations by establishing her own business, which grants her financial independence and autonomy. Through her entrepreneurial endeavors, Violeta asserts her agency and challenges traditional gender roles, embodying resilience and determination in the face of adversity. As she navigates the complexities of love, loss, and personal growth, Violeta’s unwavering independence becomes a central theme, highlighting her strength and resilience in pursuing her dreams and shaping her destiny on her own terms.
