Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands
A Moral and Amorous TaleBook - 2006
It surprises no one that the charming but wayward Vadinho dos Guimaraes -- a gambler notorious for never winning -- dies during Carnival. His long suffering widow Dona Flor devotes herself to her cooking school and her friends, who urge her to remarry. She is soon drawn to a kind pharmacist who is everything Vadinho was not, and is altogether happy to marry him. But after her wedding she finds herself dreaming about her first husbandʹs amorous attentions; and one evening Vadinho himself appears by her bed, as lusty as ever, to claim his marital rights. -- Publisher description.
