it was amazing
Read from March 10 to 13, 2007 , read count: 1

A well-crafted story of the reunion of two sisters separated from early life by disparate familial loyalties, and later by political paths following the rise of El Comandante in Cuba. There is a wealth of ironies and mystical significance bordering on magical realism, yet the complex personalities are not compromised and remain as strong entities in the reader's imagination. García also provides a complex modern perspective on the Cuban situation, going right to the heart of the issues facing Cuban patriots and Cubans-in-exile in Miami. This novel came to my list from the Seattle Public Library's reading list "Reading Across the Map: Latino Fiction", and from Nancy Pearl's Book Lust category "Cuba Si!".
