A HELLO SUNSHINE x REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICK

“A beautiful novel that's full of forbidden passions, family secrets and a lot of courage and sacrifice.”—Reese Witherspoon

After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity—and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution...


Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba's high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country's growing political unrest—until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary...

Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa's last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth.

Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba's tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she'll need the lessons of her grandmother's past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.

A Good History reference

The story was very great but too much history was added.That’s kinda annoying.May it be a reference for those who like to know short histories of Cuba

A Cuban in Miami

I left Cuba when I was 16, I’m 21 now. I’ve always feel intrigued by the thought of how life was before 1959. This book answer many of my questions. I cried a lot, because many of those feelings are still part of me, the love for my country, mi Cuba, mi Habana , the love for my father and grandmother that still live there(like Luis’), the love for my beloved childhood friend (like Ana). The writer did a great job portraying the feeling that Cubans in the exile an in the island feel, the old and new generations. I loved it!!!
