Sisters Lola, Chita, and Rosita are the proud keepers of the Montero name in Matanzas, Cuba.

At the same time in Cuba, Lola is asked to cook for the Soviet soldiers amassing there and accidentally witnesses a Soviet missile installation. She tells her sisters, and they devise a way to send their children to Florida on a boat, while keeping this plan from their husbands.

This novel is set in 1962, when tensions between the U.S. and Cuba were maxed out. Author Brenda Sparks Prescott moves back and forth between a Cuban and American families trying to protect their children by sending them to a safer area than Havana and a military base outside Washington D.C. The Cuban family has some significant interfamily rivalries and brothers and sisters are pitted against each other; however, the presence of Russian missiles forces the wives to devise an escape plan. Meanwhile, there is a clear racial divide on the military base, with the blacks in some key supporting roles, such as Master Sergeant in charge of supplies versus the white General and his wife. Finally, there is a military cover-up, which has ramifications for the on-base relationships. A good period for a mostly forgotten episode in time. 3.5 stars. ( )
