Ellis is the bestselling author of numerous contemporary romantic suspense novels.From Booklist:
Seasoned romance- and suspense-writer Ellis sets her latest tale in Castro's Cuba. Havana pediatrician Chris is disillusioned with the meager supplies and restrictions that define his life, yet he doesn't want to be disloyal to his father's memory or his own devotion to his country. Chris finds himself drawn to Eva, a pretty nurse, who shares his yearning for a better life. The novel traces their courtship, marriage, and friendship with another young couple from the hospital. Chris and Eva's story takes a turn when they discover their infant son has a serious heart condition that can only be cured with an operation in an American hospital. Ellis paints a portrait of resilience in the face of overwhelming circumstances. Despite some heavy-handed dialogue in which characters describe the Cuban Revolution and its repercussions, readers stay engaged, wanting to discover the couple's fate. Aleksandra Kostovski
