Love is the time of Cholera

They exchange love letters on several occasions (Márquez 39). However, once Fermina’s father comes to know about their relationship, he forces his daughter to stop seeing Florentino. Fermina does not agree with her father’s idea, and that forces the family to leave for another city. Regardless of the distance, Fermina and Florentino maintain their communication through letters. Upon her return, she realizes that her love with Florentino was just a dream as they were practically strangers and this forces her to break up with him and return all the love letters.
