I listened to this book and it was very interesting. It is in a prose style and told quite a fascinating story about refugees in Cuba. I had no idea that so many refugees from Europe settled in Cuba after fleeing the Nazi regime. The island accepted thousands of people. The story is about a Cuban girl and German boy, their friendship, and how they help others. There are Quakers who help with the resettlement and a greedy Cuban official who extorts money. Very interesting book.
