about this item

La historia de un hombre y una mujer que se amaron por encima de sus familias y sus propios temores, zarandeados por los vientos políticos de una isla hermosa y exuberante, cálida y cruel.



Hay amores que no pueden olvidarse, piensa Miguel Alegret desde su exilio en Miami en los años setenta, abrumado por la muerte de su padre. De la misma forma que echa de menos su Cuba natal, la tierra bella y cálida que le vio nacer, añora también sus primeros años junto a Eva, la joven que le robó el corazón y con quien mantuvo un romance en contra de todo lo establecido.
Pero la memoria es un río caudaloso, lleno de recuerdos a veces maravillosos y otras más amargos, y Miguel se deja arrastrar por esas aguas que reflejan, además de su propia historia, la de la voluble y bulliciosa capital cubana, ahora en manos de Fidel Castro.
Unos años intensos, bellos y a veces trágicos, en los que Eva ha sido para Miguel el único faro, la única certeza... El único puerto al que siempre desea llegar.

Con su sensibilidad y un estilo único y evocador, Ana Cabrera nos brinda la historia de una generación marcada por la nostalgia que tuvo que aprender a amar desde la distancia, recordando los paisajes de esa Cuba apasionada e inolvidable.


ENGLIS DESCRIPTION

.A love story about a man and a woman who loved each other in spite of everything that conspired against them: family, their own fears, or even the political winds of a beautiful, warm, yet cruel island.

br>During his exile in Miami in the seventies, and grief stricken by his father’s death, Miguel Alegret thinks about old loves that should never be forgotten. Meanwhile reminiscing about his native Cuba, and missing that beautiful place of his childhood, he is also missing the tender first couple of years with Eva, the young girl who stole his heart and with whom he had a whirlwind romance that fought against all odds.
Memories however, are far and deep, they go from the most wonderful to harsher ones. Through Miguel, we see his own personal history along with a loud and unpredictable history of Cuba’s capital which is now in the hands of Fidel Castro. For Miguel these have been a few intense, beautiful, and sometimes tragic years, in which Eva has been his only certainty, the only constant part of his life.

With a sensitivity and a unique style, Ana Cabrera narrates the story of a generation marked by melancholy one that had to learn to love from afar, remembering the landscapes of a passionate and unforgettable Cuba.
