Stealing Castro s Daughter Book Description :

Many fall for Cuba's music, its dance, the enduring strength and charm of its people. Award-winning actor Lee Brooks fell for one of its women. But how to pluck this forbidden fruit away from the so-called island frozen in time, where even romance can be illegal? Out-foxing the Castro regime's state military apparatus, only to be forced into a shady web of human smugglers and a months-long limbo at sea, Brooks and his Cuban princess show that not only does love conquer all, but that when it comes to Cuba, fact is often much wilder than any kind of fiction. Stealing Castro's Daughter is a tour de force of adventure romance set against the lush tapestry of Caribbean's crown jewel, at one of the most important junctures of the island's rich history.

Young Castro Book Description :

This intimate, revisionist portrait of Fidel Castro, showing how an unlikely young Cuban led his country in revolution and transfixed the world, is “sure to become the standard on Castro’s early life” (Publishers Weekly). Until now, biographers have treated Castro’s life like prosecutors, scouring his past for evidence to convict a person they don’t like or don’t understand. Young Castro challenges us to put aside the caricature of a bearded, cigar-munching, anti-American hothead to discover how Castro became the dictator who acted as a thorn in the side of US presidents for nearly half a century. In this “gripping and edifying narrative…Hansen brings imposing research and notable erudition” (Booklist) to Castro’s early life, show...
