Like Water for Chocolate trilogy is an ode to feminine independence and the best recipe for the maladies of our times: estrangement, eating disorders, social media. María, addicted to food, is abandoned by her husband after the birth of their first child. In the midst of an avalanche of racist and sexist attacks, she is rescued by her estranged grandmother Lucía, who leads her to discover Tita's Diary.

Through this historic document, María is able to reconnect with her roots and discover family secrets as she dives into a world of alchemy and transformation of the natural world that she had never experienced before.

The Colors of My Past is a novel that will not leave any reader indifferent, an epic of several generations of free and passionate women who never back down in the face of adversity.

Includes original soundtrack to enhance your reading experience by scanning the QR codes in each chapter.
