She also covers the struggle to get in and out of Cuba at a time when the country is a pariah state. Yet over and over again, Simón manages to slip past international barriers and overcome language and cultural obstacles—all in the name of her love for Luis.This book makes a great read for those with an interest in Cuban history, a zest for romance, or a passion for travel.
