|Plot Summary of Castro's Daughter: An Exile's Memoir of Cuba|
|"As one of Fidel Castro's children, Alina Fernandez had a strangely mixed upbringing, a mixture of privelige and privation. This is her private story, told from her intensely personal point of view, and making it quite plain that she speaks for herself and the people of Cuba that she knew in the last forty years, rather than as an expert on Castro the ruler of Cuba. It is a fascinating and often painful account of her life in that country. Alina Fernandez escaped into exile as 'a forty year old Cinderella' from the poverty and the devastation of that tormented island, forced to leave her own daughter behind in Cuba. She now lives in Spain."
Michael JR Jose, Resident Scholar
