That makes it 3 out of 3. It is a big relief to get good reviews. Huge. After working on this thing for 7 years, to know that people – complete strangers – critical readers – are enjoying The Cigar Maker is more rewarding than sales and profits. Take a look!
We get beautiful glimpses of Cuban culture, and Cuban society. We learn of the common people who never lead charges, build skyscrapers, or become captains of industry, and yet are quietly heroic as they sacrifice for their families and their children’s future. The story here is about a Cuban American family, but in a real sense, it is about every immigrant family that dared to risk everything in the hope of making a better life.
