Ahh, Blanca. Yes, yes I would go through 177 different sites looking for you. Not all that many people read Isabel Allende, after all. Yes, I've read House of the Spirits and the reference to Blanca had been poking in my mind for a bit. My personal favorite Allende book is Portrait in Sepia.
As for my name, long story short, I was somewhat named after the freesia flower and it's pronounced Free-sha. There are a few other Freecia's in the world and I have no idea how they like to pronounce their name.
