    1. Dalia Rabinovich Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Flora's Suitcase book, this is one of the most wanted Dalia Rabinovich author readers around the world.

    2. American woman, Flora, marries Russian emigrant Dave who takes her off to Colombia to settle with his extended family. The book is a twist of Flora's life (through a manipulative marriage and strange babies -- I loved Ruthie the baby who was never happy), interwoven with the oddities of Colombia. It's a surreal, magical story, not quite real, particularly Bolivariarna, the too-old-to-be-real woman who lives in a room off the courtyard of Flora's rented house.I loved this! Great writing, a flowin [...]

    3. Once I got used to the magic and superstitions in this book, I really enjoyed it. The writing is discriptive and beautiful, and often more than a little funny. Although at times sequences were a little hard to follow,especially in the beginning it is well worth reading on. One of my favourite scenes in the story is the birth of Ruthie, the unwanted child. Her reluctant exit from her mother's womb is both funny and poignant. I laughed out loud at Marina the maid and Dorothy, Flora's unflappable f [...]

    4. This was a charming easy read. I liked how she took a pretty unpleasent situation and made the most of it. My only complaint was how depresing it was to be in such a situation with such strange individuals. It wasn't exactly a great mannuel on how to deal with marital problems either. The part about making your husband keep a promise he can't possibly keep so you can hold it over his head for the rest of his life and her locking hereself in her room for days bugged me as did the choice her husba [...]

    5. I wanted to read something that wasn't as heavy as what I am in the middle of (None to Accompany Me). Reminded me of a less experienced Isabel Allende and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.An enjoyable read.

    6. ├ľne of the most delightful stories I have read. The descriptive language was so beautiful, you can almost taste the mangos and see the vivid colours.
