Publisher's Summary

In 1959 Cuba, Natalia San Martín was nothing short of a princess: sheltered, pampered, and courted by her very own prince, a childhood friend turned lifelong love. All that changed on the fateful New Year's Eve when Fidel Castro and his followers seized control of the country, with tragic consequences for not only the island but Natalia herself.

Five years later, in 1960s New York, she's known as Natalie Martin - living a life that's bleak but thankfully anonymous. However, when the enigmatic Jack Roemer offers her a job writing the memoir of a starlet on the brink of self-destruction, she sees not only opportunity but unexpected echoes of a fairy tale long forgotten. As she knows all too well, however, the prettiest façade can hide the ugliest of truths - and peeling back the layers of someone else's past forces Natalie to confront her own.

So Captivatung!

This was a book that I could hardly stop listening to. I kept turning it on whenever I could steal a moment to listen.

I loved the character development and Robin Miles as the narrator was perfect.

Barbara Ferrer, thank you for this complex and deeply emotional story.
