What Amazon reviewers are saying

on June 22, 2017
This book should be required reading for every college student in America. I grew up in Miami and knew many Cuban immigrants, but never fully appreciated or understood their plight until reading this book. Very readable and made me feel like I was there during that very sad time in Cuban history.

When I bought this book I figured it would be interesting but it was actually way better than I expected it to be. The author does a great job of weaving her own family's history in with the history of the Cuban revolution and the consequences of the revolution. Highly recommended.

Camilo continued..........

On October 30 the government announced to the nation that Camilo Cienfuegos had vanished while traveling in his plane from Camag├╝ey to Habana. I still remember my mother telling me about Camilo’s mysterious disappearance a few years later while she was doing laundry.  She felt so much pain and anxiety. She just couldn’t let it go. She would look up and shake her head in disbelief and say, “Camilo, Camilo,” while I stood there listening.

             The masses threw themselves into the streets in desperation. Church bells rang all over the nation and churches were filled with parishioners praying for his safe return. Cubans of that era—among them, members of my family and many of their friends—believe it was very possible that Camilo also had confronted Fidel in person but had stopped short of resignation and public renouncement. This would have made Fidel want him gone.

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died at war defending liberty and freedom.  From the Civil War to foreign wars we honor our fallen American soldiers.

Approximately thirty seven soldiers died defending South Korea from the claws of communism.  More than fifty thousand died in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.  

Memorial Day is not the day to say "Happy Memorial Day" to any one, instead it is a day to say have a blessed and peaceful Memorial Day. Stop at any cemetery and say "thank you" to a soldier who, to you, is unknown but who was a son, a father, a brother or a friend to someone long ago and not so long ago.

Consider turning the radio off.  Rejoice in the company of family and friends.
