    The story line was not very believable which made it difficult to connect with the characters. Some interesting narratives of Cuban history and culture.

  • Sue C.

    I was very disappointed in this book. The storyline in 2017 was unbelievable. I really never felt anything for the characters. I didn't like them or dislike them. I just didn't care. The long speeches that were used to explain the history, etc. dragged on and were interesting. There was a cadence to the speech that I found to be very distracting. It sounded unnatural. I don't know if it was because of the writing or the narrator. I would not have bothered finishing it if we weren't reading it for book club.

    The story was pretty bland for me. And also do unrealistic I felt. The narrator for Marisol was great but the one who narrates for Elisa was sooo BLAH... monotone and depressive sounding. Wanted to love the book but it was just ok. I did enjoy hearing about Cuba and the different perspectives though.

  • Marie P.

    I enjoy the "fictional" non fiction history genre. Great narration. Too easily are the American priveledged forgetful Of the not so distant past.

  • Sherry R.

    I loved this book!... What's better than 2 love stories while learning about history. So well written . I enjoyed the story line very much. I miss the characters now that the book is over. ... That's how I know it was a good book!

  • Qiana W.

    This book gave me the chills. It has historical elements, politics, the Cuban family culture, romance & heartbreak. Communism breaks my heart. Oppression is sad & just isn't right to do.
