Description

From the Caribbean shores of Columbia comes a sensuous, funny, spicy novel about love and desire. Innocent, good-hearted orphan Teodora Vencejos is overjoyed when handsome ne'er-do-well Don Galaor Ucros asks for her hand in marriage, never suspecting that he is marrying her for her money and that he carries on torrid affairs behind her back. But Ucros's lazy, spendthrift ways force Teodora to leave their Colombian village to find work in Madrid at the catering firm of sensual master chef Dr. Amiel, baker of anatomically correct confectionery and other erotic goodies, whose bawdy culinary creations open her mind and whose innovative methods of debt collecting - a certain amount of credit for each kiss, more for an embrace, and so on - give new meaning to exacting a pound of flesh. In Amiel's kitchen, Teodora receives an education both culinary and carnal, one that will gradually awaken the sleeping force of her polymorphous sexuality.Teodora's sudden urge to return home after two years in Spain has unexpected results, for she has grown into a beautiful woman whose heavenly body, like the tide-turning moon, has the power to stir a whole village. When a traumatic discovery sends Teodora into a deep, enchanted sleep, the entire town falls under her magical, sexual spell. Whose kiss will wake her? Her husband's? Dr. Amiel's? Or a stranger's? Senora Honeycomb is a beguiling fairy tale for our time. Seasoned with wry humor and eroticism, it is a playfully ironic story about the liberation of female desire.
