We hope you'll join us for this special virtual program with historical author Lorena Hughes. Set in the 1920s of the coastal region of Ecuador, The Spanish Daughter is a well crafted book about deception, heritage, and family secrets. After her father's death, a young woman must pretend to be a man in order to claim the cacao estate that is her birthright. Based on the little known Maria Purification Garcia who invented the bean roaster in 1847 (which allowed chocolate to be introduced the world), Lorena portrays Maria as the character Puri, her protagonist's grandmother. Tune in on the 21st of March to learn more about the author, her book, and the cocoa boom of the 1920s! A lucky participant will win an ARC of The Spanish Daughter!
