Like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, or Isabel Allende, a wonderful nearly century-long tale of one family's life in Cuba and America. Touches on themes of immigration and emigration, the Cuban revolution, immigrant integration into the fabric of America, etc... Beautifully written.
Nice quality HB edition of this epic novel - spanning a century of the Montez O'Brien family: their lives, loves, tragedies in a small Pennsylvania town: Irish photographer father, aristocratic Cuban mother, 14 daughters and one son! "Raucous and heartfelt"
