Mi negro pasado

Publisher:Suma de letras



Like Water for Chocolate, one of the most beloved novels of all time, changed Mexican literature. My Dark Past continues this story. My Dark Past, a continuation of Like Water for Chocolate, is a defense of women’s independence, and the best recipe against the evils of this world: alienation, obesity, and empty consumerism. María, addicted to food, suffers the wrongful end of her marriage in the middle of a racist, sexist rant. Undone, she receives Tita’s diary from Lucía, her long-lost grandmother. Upon immersing herself in it, she discovers unexpected family secrets, the capacity of the human spirit to fly high thanks to the alchemy that converts natural ingredients into food, and a sense of belonging that she has never felt before. The voice of María, from the same warrior lineage as the De Garza women, continues the family saga. The protagonist must negotiate a bumpy road while gaining confidence in herself. This process will lead her to create an unbreakable connection with Tita and all her ancestors, and thus achieve a reconciliation for mind and body. A rebirth. But the true dilemma comes when María once again experiences the deepest of feelings: love. My Dark Past is a novel that will leave no one indifferent, the epic of several generations of free, passionate women who teach us to overcome all adversity. Description: 224 Pages | 6 x 9
