Poppy Seed Lemon Cake

Original title: Historia del mundo contada para escépticos

Juan Eslava Galán

Synopsis:

Chocolat meets Under the Tuscan Sun in this poignant story of love and forgiveness.

During the winter of 2010, in a small town in Mallorca, Anna and Marina meet up fifteen years since they last saw each other to sell a windmill and bakery they've inherited from a stranger. The sisters have led very different lives. Anna is well-off, married to a man she no longer loves and has barely left the island. Marina works in the third world as a doctor for an NGO. Entirely unexpectedly, Marina decides to keep the bakery to find out who its former owner, Lola Molí, was. During her search, she'll learn to bake bread, uncover secrets about her family, and get to know the real Anna. Together, perhaps they'll be able to make up for lost time, face their ghosts and take control of their lives.
