Book Description:
Three young women are sent into exile after the murder of three young men, but are they responsible? Could their guilt be hiding a big secret? A triple murder takes place in the Cuba of the late 1950 s, changing forever the lives of six young individuals. Time and distance separate them now, yet all remain joined by a shared secret they ve promised never to reveal. In this new saga, we feel suspense, surprises, deep emotions and unexpected outcomes that map the road by which the main characters will relive their past to find in their present the profound reality of their origins and identity finally sowing the seeds for a better future. Through her characteristically evocative style, Alma Flor Ada describes the everyday historical and political events lived by Cubans in exile and by those that remain on the island. Her narrative transcends the purely anecdotal to present us with a kaleidoscope of intense feelings and moving dialogues where time and memory dance to the beat of absence and yearning.

Con el estilo evocador que la caracteriza, la autora describe los detalles del acontecer hist rico y pol tico en torno al cual gravitan los cubanos de la isla y del exilio, trascendiendo lo meramente anecd tico para ofrecernos un caleidoscopio de emociones intensas, de di logos conmovedores, donde el tiempo y la memoria palpitan al comp s de la ausencia y la a oranza. Las situaciones, los protagonistas, los escenarios en los que transcurre la trama, la poes a impl cita y expl cita de la obra, otorgan al drama nacional un aliento indiscutible de universalidad. Una novela de transformaciones, de rupturas, que llama a la reflexi n acerca de nuestro papel en el mundo contempor neo..
