LoveReading Says

Bold, passionate, and dramatic, this historical romance set in early 18th century Spain is a novel into which you can completely immerse yourself. After the death of her father and loss of fortune, Clara finds herself working in the Castamar kitchens where her love of cooking brings her to the attention of the Duke. While undoubtedly a romance, author Fernando J. Munez ensures the story traverses tragedy, trust, friendship, and explores varied topics including prejudice and injustice. Translators Rahul Very and Tim Gutteridge allow you to feel the differences of the location, while feeling settled in the story. The historical aspect and sense of place shouts with vivid intensity. The descriptions of the food are mouthwatering, and as they arrived in my mind, I could picture and almost taste and smell them. There are some dastardly deeds set loose within the pages, and you’ll also explore much darker and more profound issues too. The plot seesaws between characters, setting a fast pace, and allowing intimate access. The Cook of Castamar is an expressive, and spirited relationship story set in a fascinating period of Spanish history.
