Like Water for Chocolate
by Laura Esquivel

I really enjoyed this book. Tita is the youngest daughter and according to tradition will grow up and take care of her mother. Because of this tradition her mother forbids her marrying and instead arranges for her sister Rosaura to marry her beau, Pedro. Through some really delicious sounding recipes Ms. Esquivel shows us how this tradition and decision affects the family and those close to them. We see much of the story through Tita’s eyes and it is through her that we are by turns joyous and heartbroken. This was a wonderful book and one I am sure to read again!
