It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the
fate of unrequited love. Fifty-one years have passed since Fermina rebuffed
Florentino and married Juvenal Urbino instead. Swearing his love to her, he
lives for the day when he can court her again. When Fermina's husband is
killed, Florentino seizes his chance to declare his enduring love. But can
young love find new life in the twilight of their lives?
