"A beautiful novel full of passion, secrets, courage and sacrifice." (Reese Witherspoon)
After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity - and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution
Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, 19-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba's high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country's growing political unrest - until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary....
Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa's last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba's tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate.
When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she'll need the lessons of her grandmother's past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.

Amazing story line but the performance...
I absolutely loved this book and was sucked in. The performance was bit dry and slow but I found that if you changed the speed of the reading to atleast x1.5 or x1.75 it made it so much better!

It’s not that the narrator was unpleasant to listen to, it’s just that the audio was incredibly hard to hear in this book. I listen to audiobooks in my car every day, but I could barely hear this unless I turned the AC off, not ideal in 100° Dallas weather!!
