I really liked this book as it made me feel at home since I grew up in Guatemala. I am not talking so much about the storyline but about how the author describes the country and the people the food and its customs. She did a great job of bringing Guatemala alive for me. Her parents had gone through pe I really liked this book as it made me feel at home since I grew up in Guatemala. Her parents had gone through personal problems, and she and her mother left to live in California and 10years later and 2 years after her father had been murdered, Veronica goes back to Guatemala where she is being asked to sell the farms, that she had inherited, by the town's corrupt mayor Jaime Ramirez.
The coffee diary is a diary she had kept when she was a young teen and she finds it, in her room at the farm and uses it as a reference to thing present and past. This story deals with corruption, some violence and organized crime, but also how these thing have shaped the people of the town. There are some great friendships with people she had not see since her youth and a rekindling of feelings for a past love interest. This was a really good story. The Author, went down to Guatemala in with the Peace Corps,and while there met her Guatemalan husband, who's family has been involved with growing coffee for generations.
Dec 19, Brandon O'Neill rated it really liked it. I know the author and was worried.
What if I really didn't like her book and this is our next book for our book club? No need to worry.
The Coffee Diary by Caroline Kellems
I think anyone who lives or has a connection with Guatemala or is interested in a good book on the country would enjoy this tale. The book centers around Veronica - a half Guatemalan, half U. She has never fully dealt with his death or what to do with the property 2 coffee farms her father left her. A choice must now be made because the corrupt, drug running mayor of the city wants the property. Veronica deals with her present by looking at her past in the Coffee Diary she kept as a teenage girl. A fast, excellent read!
