Publisher's Summary

When Isabel Perez travels to Barcelona to save her sister, Beatriz, she discovers a shocking family secret in New York Times best-selling author Chanel Cleeton’s new novel.

Barcelona, 1964. Exiled from Cuba after the revolution, Isabel Perez has learned to guard her heart and protect her family at all costs. After Isabel’s sister, Beatriz, disappears in Barcelona, Isabel goes to Spain in search of her. Joining forces with an unlikely ally thrusts Isabel into her sister’s dangerous world of espionage, but it’s an unearthed piece of family history that transforms Isabel’s life.

Barcelona, 1936. Alicia Perez arrives in Barcelona after a difficult voyage from Cuba, her marriage in jeopardy and her young daughter, Isabel, in tow. Violence brews in Spain, the country on the brink of civil war, the rise of fascism threatening the world. When Cubans journey to Spain to join the International Brigades, Alicia’s past comes back to haunt her as she is unexpectedly reunited with the man who once held her heart. 

Alicia and Isabel’s lives intertwine, and the past and present collide, as a mother and daughter are forced to choose between their family’s expectations and following their hearts.

Hard to follow

I have read all the books in the series but this one was hard to follow between the different characters in different timelines. I found myself frequently checking the chapter “name” to see which character it was.

Closure for the Perez family

The circle has been closed, the historical journey and love affairs are perfect to end the journey.

Ms Cleeton does it again

This book has to be my favorite of all the Perez family and the saga of their Cuban exile, a subject near and dear to my heart. All the books have been so entertaining and I can so easily loose myself in the stories of all the amazing female characters. I can especially relate to Isabel and I’m so pleased that Ms Cleeton gave her a voice in the spotlight.

Love this series

Another beautifully written story with historic details woven throughout. Love that this sister was an artist, loved that the mother’s story was shared, love everything about it. Great 3rd book in a wonderful series. Wish audible would include the family tree that is in the back of the book somehow. When only listening, it’s hard to keep up with all the family connections. Tried unsuccessfully to find the family tree online.

Good overall

I loved the history, culture and heritage of the story overall . I do think that cities like Barcelona and Havana should be pronounced with authentic accents as they are cities in Spanish speaking countries and the book directly references the language and heritage of each place.

INCREDIBLE

This book was absolutely incredible. I was so locked in the whole time. Ups and downs, twists and turns. Chanel Cleeton has done it again, although I’m not surprised. Beautiful social commentary, I walk away knowing and understanding more about Cuban history and exile each time. This time including Spanish history as well and how the two intersect. I’d give it more than 5 stars if I could!
