really liked it

This was a wonderful story. I love books that are rich in detail especially about the history of an old world place. This is the story of a woman named Cecilia who has migrated to Miami from Cuba. She is depressed living in Little Havana missing her home even though she wishes to never go back. She meets an old woman in a bar and goes back every night to hear a story she tells about three different families from Africa, Spain, and China who have made Cuba their home and become interconnected. This book goes back and forth between present day and early 1900's. Great read.
