Like Water for Chocolate

By Laura Esquivel
Narrated by: Kate Reading
Length: 5 hours 52 minutes

Like Water for Chocolate

“I love impossible love and heartbreaking romance, so that would be enough to get me reading, but this novel has so much more. Published in 1990, it was a huge success in Mexico. It was an international best-seller, and with good reason. Food has magical powers in this book, as do tears and sexual attraction. This story is a delight. It will surprise you at every turn. And the ending is unpredictable and perfect. I loved it when I was 20 and I love it still.”
