ACuba, Pearl of the Antilles, a gorgeous, tropical country, was one big prison during the 1980's. Fidel Castro — the "Great Leader” — ruled the country unchallenged, forcing Communism on the entire country with an iron hand.
In Havana, the island’s capital, lives an assimilated Jewish family, the Daniels. Within a short period of time, Alonso Daniel faces the most unexpected perils as he endeavors both to save his brother’s life and pursue his forbidden study of Torah. The reader will accompany him to a military-preparatory boarding school, to the government hospital in Havana, to the municipal library’s basement in Marianao, on crosscountry trains, on the backs of horses over mountains, and in the Caribbean Sea — till the very end of the story. Suspenseful, dramatic, and insightful. Sure to be loved by teens and adults alike.
