"With luminous prose and a clarity of historical vision, Andrea O’Reilly Herrera masterfully recreates a family’s saga from Cuba to the other America. Both powerful and tender, her writing testifies to the endurance of the human spirit as well as to the presence of the diaspora in the Cuban exile community to which she belongs." —Marjorie Agosín, author of THE ALPHABET IN MY HANDS: A WRITING LIFE
"This is a rare novel—a quest for origin and legitimacy, exquisitely written in a language that draws on the mysterious forces of continuity and renewal. Moving across time and space, it is the reconstruction of an unfinished world, a way of life that was lost—the waning years of Cuba’s postplantation, pre-Revolutionary period, four generations removed—until we are candidly and painfully brought to the present time. It is a luminous celebration of the Island’s contrapuntal facets: its sensuous, ever-present physical beauty, alongside the cruelty and violence that resulted in a shattering of the old order." —Lourdes Gil, author of EMPIEZA LA CIUDAD
". . . one immediately feels at home in the hands of this gifted new writer as she weaves this amazingly rich and wonderful tapestry of history, memory, myth, and literary (re)envisioning replete with a cast of characters that exalt and uplift the human condition in exile . . . This is the kind of book that passes through our hands only once every decade." —Virgil Suárez, author of IN THE REPUBLIC OF LONGING
