This truly was a novel approach to writing a history of the last 150 years in Cuba. It touched on major political events but focused on them only to the extent that they affected the Bacardi family. True, the Bacardis were not an average Cuban family, but their story represents the story of the educated class in Cuba - which are now mostly exiled Cuban Americans. It was a great read.
