Two kids and their parents must flee Berlin as the Nazi's cast out the "undesirables". After paying double what others would pay and having to purchase a round trip ticket on what is clearly a one way journey, they board a ship bound for Cuba. Leo and Hannah don't want to leave their home but they do love the adventure on board until word gets out that the Cubans will ban them from docking and they may be returned to a country that clearly doesn't want them. What happens next will rip the families apart and will stay with Hannah for the rest of her life. The second story is how the descendants of Hannah's family find each other in a trip from New York to Cuba that will answer many questions and create many more. Ana and her mother have lost their father/husband to 9/11
and both sides benefit from the meeting. Bittersweet and heartfelt their story will resonate - family is everything, survival above all else and forgiveness for sins we have no control over.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
