Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Narrators Kyla Garcia and Frankie Maria Corzo tag-team a story that spans generations, with the flavors of Cuban food and culture saturating the shared narrative. As Marisol Ferrera travels to Cuba in order to lay her grandmother, Elisa Perez's, ashes to rest, she is introduced to secrets that ensure she won't be able to leave until she uncovers truths her grandmother buried. Taking Elisa's perspective, Garcia portrays a gently bred Cuban socialite who falls in love with a revolutionary in the shadow of Fidel Castro's rise to power. From Marisol's perspective, Corzo describes genuine appreciation for the country of her roots, and for a man she's falling in love with too quickly to be safe for her continued stay.
