Gabriela, clavo y canela : crónica de una ciudad del interior by Jorge Amado( Book )

In 1925, the wealth produced by the cacao has allowed the economic development of Ilheus, but the customs of its people still are primitive and violent. In this town, Arabic Nacib Saad, hires Gabriela a beautiful mulatto and to his surprise, she is not only a great cook but a lovely benefit to his business. But what would people say if Nacib married her? Gabriela lives on in literature as a beautiful female figure, simple and spontaneous, beyond good and evil. With its unmatched lyricism, Jorge Amado has transmitted the character qualities typical of the Brazilian people: tenderness, sensuality without maliciousness, surrounding joy, happy primitivismo. The poignant romance of Nacib and Gabriela will be, no doubt, in the literary gallery of famous lovers

Two Arab immigrants' "Turks" as Brazilians call them, arrive in the rough Brazilian frontier on the same ship in 1903, hoping to find a future. They rub shoulders with gunslingers and plantation owners, and also tangle with merchants, one of whom is desperate to marry off his impossible daughter. Thus ensues a farcical drama that produces, in a humorous twist, the unlikeliest of suitors in this whimsical Brazilian take on The Taming of the Shrew
