Okay, if you were to be told that a family went through leaving Germany to go to Cuba, only for some to be turned back to reside in Paris then sent to a concentration camp. Then one family member dies during the World Trade Center attack and another dies during the Cuban revolution, you would think, there is no way one family can be that unlucky. Well, it does happen in this book. However, the way the author writes it, it's believable. I thought nothing about while reading the book.
I was really into reading this book. Because of the family being moved, separated from each other and just losing touch, it was such a sentimental journey to read. It was such an emotional tale to hear Hannah tell the story of her family and all that had happened. The writer did a great job with the back and forth of Ana in present day and Hannah during WWII.
I would definitely read more books by this author.
