Description
Instant New York Times bestseller!
In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life—and heart—to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author of The Last Train to Key West and Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.

Beautiful. Daring. Deadly.
The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez—her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro's inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost.
As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future—but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything—not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart...

        Cleeton (Next Year in Havana) will break hearts with this exquisitely wrought tale of a privileged girl exiled from her country and the powerful American politician who changes the course of her life. After Fidel Castro took power in Cuba, Beatriz Perez and her family sought refuge in Palm Beach, Fla., and tried to rebuild. But Beatriz craves revenge: the Cuban leader was responsible for her twin brother’s murder, and she believes that—with the help of a fellow exile, Eduardo Diaz, and her recruitment into the CIA—she can avenge that death. When U.S. Senator Nicholas Randolph Preston III enters her world at a Palm Beach society ball, she loses her heart quickly to the man who will change her life. Cleeton’s twisting, intricate plot of love and revenge takes Beatriz to such locations as Harlem and London (where she faces off with a trained Cuban intelligence officer) and finally to a potentially deadly meeting with Castro in Cuba. Tiny glimpses of the present day are woven throughout the novel, giving readers hints of what became of two idealistic souls. This is a beautiful and utterly transporting novel.

        March 15, 2019
        Cleeton continues the stories of the Perez sisters, introduced in Next Year in Havana (2018), this time featuring the firebrand sister Beatriz, who bookends her first-person story with a prologue and an epilogue that take place on the night of Fidel Castro's death, November 25, 2016. In between, this passionate novel set in the 1980s dramatizes Beatriz's laser focus on making Castro pay for her brother's death and her family's exile by scheming with members of exiled Cuban groups, including Eduardo, a handsome friend from her youth, and a slippery CIA operative. While the Perez family struggles to maintain its social standing in Miami, Beatriz seeks intrigue and falls into an illicit and impossible love affair with charming Nick, a Kennedy-like figure already engaged in a match that will be politically favorable. In often purple prose, Cleeton offers plenty of melodrama to ponder, and fans of the first novel will be thrilled.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)
