really liked it
Read in February, 2006

a story in two plots, one being how production of cacao and idealistic politics impact a brasilian town and the other being that of a poor girl named gabriela who goes to work for a foreign man and becomes his wife. every time gabriela comes back into the story, she gives it life. this book is a sensory experience and the precise simplicity of the writing is gorgeous.
