For more than fifty years, Florentino Ariza has waited for the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, Fermina Daza has forgotten all about him a long time ago, moving on with her life and marrying a wealthy doctor. But when her husband dies, the now old Fermina finds herself besieged again by the suitor of her youth. This is a wonderful novel that I would highly recommend, Márquezis a master of the written word and truly draws you into his world. Love in the Time of Cholera is a story that you’ll have a hard time putting down.
