The indelible quality of Barrios's observations, specific and true, make Blessed by Thunder an important chronicle of the Cuban experience."" --The Bloomsbury Review ""Fernandez's book is a visually rich portrait of a tumultuous era. Fernandez knows how to craft a compelling narrative best of all are [her] enchanting cast of characters."" --The Miami Herald ""Flor Fernandez Barrios reminds us what we can never forget, that ties to one's homeland endure.
