Laura Esquivel and Zora Neale Hurston created marvelous stories about women whose lives are enriched by the love they share with their soulmates.Does Esquivel’s protagonist Tita believe in true love? I’d say she does. Even though her mother tries to keep Tita and Pedro apart, Tita burns with love for Pedro her whole life long. What about Hurston’s central character Janie? She does too, but she kisses a few frogs before she ultimately finds her prince. Join me for a lively discussion of Like Water for Chocolate and Their Eyes Were Watching God, the former set in northern Mexico in the early 20th century, the latter unfolding in the same time frame in Florida. What better way to escape the early darkness and dreariness of winter than by spending time with pear-tree love and recipes for passion?
