It is 1955 and two cousins, Nora and Alicia, are growing up in Cuba, where the sun shines and the sea is a beguiling turquoise.

Nora and her family emigrate to California; Alicia and hers stay behind. But Nora has left her heart in Cuba. As the years pass, Alicia writes of her marriage to Tony, the birth of her daughter, and the terrible privations ordinary Cubans are suffering, while Castro and his henchmen dine off French porcelain in their gated mansions.

La abuela Lola by Cecilia Samartin( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sebastian sueña con ser un niño igual que los demás, con ser capaz de correr como el viento en el campo de fútbol, chutar la pelota de tal manera que dibuje una perfecta parábola y marcar un gol. Pero su corazón tiene un defecto desde que nació, lo que significa que no puede cumplir sus deseos. No obstante, Sebastian ha logrado encontrar su lugar en el mundo gracias a su excéntrica abuela Lola y al amor que esta siente por la cocina. Ambos preparan juntos riquísimos y exóticos platos puertorriqueños, el país de origen de su abuela. La complicidad que crece entre ambos (un niño enfermo y una anciana) se convierte pronto en un fuerte vínculo que logra unir de nuevo a una familia desestructurada, pues, como siempre dice Lola, una comida preparada con amor no solo alimenta el cuerpo, sino también el alma . Esta es la historia mágica de un niño que aprendió a bailar con la muerte y de cómo las pequeñas victorias de una familia pueden servir para reconstruir corazones heridos de muy diversas maneras. La abuela Lola nos enseña que la diferencia entre la alegría y la tristeza a veces pende simplemente de un hilo frágil, casi invisible. Una historia conmovedora que te emocionará
