What I found compelling and enchanting about this book is at its core, it is about love and family. However, the way the author cloaks it all with a veil of magic brings the story to a different level. One of the ways we are brought into this world is when the gifts that Marimar, Rey, and Rhiannon are given to them upon Orquídea Divina's death. In truth, they are nothing short of majestic but present their own set of issues for each. This playing with reality versus the mystical is why the book is so good.
From the beginning chapters, it becomes apparent that this is a book steeped in the tradition of magical realism. However, it is the infusion of culture, intricately created characters, and complex relationships that make THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUÍDEA DIVINA fresh and unique.
