After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity—and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba's high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country's growing political unrest—until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary ... Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa's last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba's tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she'll need the lessons of her grandmother's past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.
And outstanding read.... you cannot help but become entwined in the plight of the families involved. I am anxious to listen to it again to ensure that I haven’t missed anything.
This audio book was so good. I listened to it while at work and it made the week go by so fast! Can't wait for the next one!
I wanted to like it but it just fell flat
I purchased the book because I was attracted to the idea of weaving Cuban history into the fiction but it just fell flat.
