Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Girls with No Names, a new historical novel based on the dazzling story of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated Hispanic actresses and her daughter’s search for closure.

“Told in a series of letters, Find Me in Havana is a beautiful and heart-wrenching story of mothers and daughters, and the American Dream that comes with the biggest price of all. I couldn’t put it down!" (Heather Webb, USA Today best-selling author)

Cuba, 1936: When Estelita Rodriguez sings in a hazy Havana nightclub for the very first time, she is nine years old. From then on, that spotlight of adoration - from Havana to New York’s Copacabana and then Hollywood - becomes the one true accomplishment no one can take from her. Not the 1933 Cuban Revolution that drove her family into poverty. Not the revolving door of husbands or the fickle world of film.

Thirty years later, her young adult daughter, Nina, is blindsided by her mother’s mysterious death. Seeking answers, the grieving Nina navigates the troubling, opulent memories of their life together and discovers how much Estelita sacrificed to live the American dream on her own terms.

Based on true events and exclusive interviews with Nina Lopez, Estelita’s daughter, Find Me in Havana weaves two unforgettable voices into one extraordinary story that explores the unbreakable bond between mother and child, and the ever-changing landscape of self-discovery.

Too much tragedy, too little redemption

Loved her previous book (girls with no name) but this was a disappointment. Most of the lives too tragic. Any redemption comes way to late in the story. Could not fully relate to lives and events.

Didn’t love it

The “dear daughter, dear mother” approach was problematic for an audible book. With narrator voices so similar, it was easy to become confused as to who was speaking. I had hoped to gain greater insight of the Cuban Revolution, but that topic played a minor role.

What a gem of a book

First time reading this author. I could not stop listening! Good story and unexpected gem. The narrator did an awesome job.
