An elderly woman looks back on the world of revolutionary Cuba as she recalls her intimate, secret love affair with revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, in the story of a young Cuban woman who finds her search for details about her birth mother in a mysterious parcel containing writings and photographs. By the author of In Cuba I Was a German Shepard. 50,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The story opens in contemporary Miami, where a young Cuban woman has for years been searching in vain for details of her birth mother. All she knows of her past is that her grandfather had fled the turbulent Havana of the 1960s for Miami with her in tow, and that pinned to her sweater - possibly by her mother - were a few treasured lines of a Pablo Neruda poem. These facts remain her only tenuous links to her history, until a mysterious parcel arrives in the mail. Inside the soft, worn box are layers of writings and photographs. Fitting these pieces together with insights she gleans from several trips back to Havana, the daughter reconstructs the life of her mother, her youthful affair with the enigmatic Che, and the child she bore by the handsome rebel.
