From the author of "Waiting on Zapote Street." "'The Dance of the Rose' is an exciting novel where the author, Betty Viamontes, recreates the moments that a Cuban family encounters, from the breakup of a marriage, forced to endure twelve years of separation -the husband in the United States and the wife with three young children in Cuba, holding the illusion of reunion in the face of continuous adversity. This novel describes the reunion of the family and the efforts of the mother to overcome the estrangement, the distance between the children and the father -and herself and her husband- but especially, their insertion into a different culture and language. The tenacity, intelligence and, above all, the love with which the parents ignore their own mental schemes in favor of the growth and triumph of their children, make of this novel an edifying work, besides the pleasure that produces a pleasing writing of emotions." By Gabriel Cartaya, columnist, editor, and Latin America Studies expert.
