Tilo owns a shop in Oakland, California, where she sells herbs and spices. But Tilo isn't just a shopkeeper, she is also the Mistress of Spices. With her knowledge of their secret powers this high priestess of wisdom and magic helps customers find answers to the questions of love, loss and loneliness.

Reviews

"An unusual, clever, and often exquisite first novel...The result is rather as if Isabel Allende met Laura Esquivel.""--Los Angeles Times""Divakaruni's prose is so pungent that it stains the page, yet beneath the sighs and smells of this brand of magic realism she deftly introduces her true theme: how an ability to accommodate desire enlivens not only the individual heart but a society cornered by change.""--The New Yorker"""The Mistress of Spices" is a dazzling tale of misbegotten dreams and desires, hopes and expectations, woven with poetry and storyteller magic." --Amy Tan"A splendid novel, beautifully conceived and crafted."--Pat Conroy
