Teaser from page 124

In every country it seemed there was a bitter candy or unusual condiment that appealed only to natives; candied cod, or Marmite spread, jellied passion fruit, or baked twists of lime rinds. In Ecuador, the gourd seeds wern't bitter, but they'd been fried in curdled butter. Gabrielle had liked them raw and wanted to bring some back to share with her father, since she knew she couldn't translate their pugnancy or the way they recalled her whole time in Manta, but of course they'd never let her through customs with them.
