Laura Esquivel, author the international bestseller Como agua para chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate), one of the most beloved novels of recent years, returns to favorite themes–the power of love, the truths of the human heart–in this story of an exceptional love affair.

Júbilo Chi is a telegraph operator who born with the ability to “hear” people’s true feelings and respond to their unspoken desires. His life changes forever the day he falls in love with Lucha, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy family. Theirs is a passionate marriage–until it is shattered by a terrible event that drives them bitterly apart. Only years later, as Júbilo lies dying, is his daughter able to unravel the mystery behind her parents’ long estrangement and bring about a surprising reconciliation. Earthy and charming, Tan veloz come el deso, is a bittersweet ultimately uplifting tale about living life to the fullest and learning to hear the words of love.
