    4 out of 5 stars 7

A fascinating, powerfully evocative story of four generations of Cuban women, through whose lives the author illuminates a vivid picture - both personal and historical - of Cuba in our century. In the Revuelta family, Gimbel has found a source of both mystery and revelation.

What did you love best about Havana Dreams?

The brilliant overview of the history of Cuba, put into memorable context, was exactly what we wanted for our upcoming trip to Havana. The psychological analysis was spot on. Castro, as narcisist, was illuminating!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, but in 3.

Any additional comments?

highly recommended
