I originally picked up this book for an English paper. Its usually not a book I would pick up on my own. But to tell the truth I loved it!
I could kind of relate to this book with my Mexican background. I say kind of because I'm Mexican America, both my parents were born in Mexico. And, of course, I hear my mom and aunts talking about their lives back in Mexico and how much they worked at such a young age.
This book is full of tragedy, having that Tita, the youngest of the family, is forbidden to marry beacause of an old Mexican tradition. But you cant tell your heart what to do. And so she fell in love with Pedro. However, they cant ever be together. After multiple tragedies, and after 22 years they can finally be together. "Love never dies," this book really showed that.
But something I really liked was that at the beginning of every chapter there is a recipe. I thought that was cool :) This book was a really good story about an impossible love that, in the end, conquers all.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
