About this deal

It’s always scary recommending/gifting a book to someone, since you want them to enjoy what you give them, and this couldn’t have turned out any better! Because of her, Pilar and I would never dare board a plane without toting a spare pair of underwear and a change of clothes. Soon a new future is beginning to form in Lila's mind-one that would mean leaving everything she ever planned behind. She is now torn between her life in Miami, preserving her abuelita’s legacy, and a new life in Winchester. Lila slowly falls in love with England, its culture, food, tea, and inevitably with our charming British hero.

But Mami still hasn’t removed the little altar of cards, photos, figurines, and dried flowers from Abuela’s dresser. the second, was partially because of a book club, but also because i was looking for a way to heal after my own grandmother had passed. And while I think my expectations were a little too high as I kinda got a little disappointed with this book. It’s the home of our bakery that I will take over and grow—the one that would always rest on Abuela’s roots. The plan was 1) take over her abuela’s role as head baker at their panadería, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend.

Worried about Lila’s mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. Everything was so well crafted, and I love how Laura Taylor Namey took her time developing every aspect of the story.

I guess her immediate family sort of managed to accidentally dodge the whole thing so of course it doesn’t figure largely in her writing. A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow is a tale so sweet, savory, and delightful that you'll long to travel, bake, and believe in the possibilities of love. Worried about Lila's mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: Spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. lately, I have been OBSESSED with England and Europe in general, so this definitely helped my need to travel grow even more.Her fiery passion might be also the reason of 2 of the trifecta—her boyfriend Andres dumping her and her fallout with her best friend Stefanie Here are some lines from her abuelita that somewhat describe Lila, “ But you add yourself like too much sugar sometimes. I loved a lot about this book, but I also had too high of expectations, which seems to be a recent issue. She finds that her clothes are not weather appropriate, the inn’s baker is not willing to let her incorporate some of her recipes, and she feels like she’s making mistake after mistake. I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time.

My parents would never consider sending me overseas like that to deal with a problem (in fact, they made sure I wouldn’t be equipped to do that). Holding the soft jersey tee in the panadería office only hardened one fact inside of me: My grief had changed, morphing from a line between two throbbing end points—Abuela and Andrés—to a new shape. Her worried family decides that she needs a change of scenery and ships her off to stay with extended family in England.Lila only really mentioned an ex-boyfriend and a best friend (both also responsible for 2 of the 3 things that had devastated her so much) and this was a larger social circle that helped her adjust to a different country and find things to enjoy within that country. I adored the side-characters, Jules in particular, and loved the addition of music and Spanish language throughout— esto fue hermoso.
