If you’ve read any of Isabel Allende‘s memoirs, you know that no detail about her or her family’s lives is off-limits. You can also image that Allende feels very comfortable involving herself with all details of her family members’ personal situations.

In this excerpt from The Sum of Our Days Allende reads from the chapter “Searching for a Bride.” She tells the hilarious tale of her quest to find a wife for her son Nico after his divorce.

Spoiler alert: Mother knows best!
