DELRAY BEACH, Fla., May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beverly's compelling novel is timely, educational and worth the read. Raised by a tyrant and a functioning voluptuary with an uncontrolled temper in a country ruled by a dictator with Communistic leanings, there was little chance for personal growth and independent thought in Havana, Cuba in the 1950's for Julian Vida. As a naive teen, he is sent out of Cuba to retrieve smuggled family jewels on the eve of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
Beverly deftly guides us through Julian's childhood in Havana and his coming of age in New York City during the sexual revolution while we witness the conditions before, during and after Fidel Castro's takeover of the Island and the traumatizing effects it has on Julian's dysfunctional family.
As Julian strives for freedom, political and personal, by a twist of fate he begins to lose his liberty when his oppressive parents arrive and refuse to assimilate into American society. The story contains humor, adultery, betrayal, family issues and smuggling. The situations Julian experiences are funny, sad, intriguing and hold your interest throughout. Take the journey and discover why success is not always measured by what one becomes, but often by what one overcomes.
