Miss W’s Review:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

A Cuban Russian American Love Story is a poignant tale of unexpected love.

The story is about “a young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club. A Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York. An American woman struggles to maintain her hope and dignity after a life-changing accident”.

The story is well written and encompasses themes of love, damage, healing and forgiveness.

The characters are complex, complicated, and well fleshed out.

This is an unexpected, beautiful multi-cultural love story.
