About the Author
Victor Andres Triay, Ph.D., was born in Miami, Florida, to Cuban exile parents. He has been a history professor at Middlesex Community College in Middletown, Connecticut, since 1992. His first historical work, Fleeing Castro: Operation Pedro Pan and the Cuban Children’s Program (University Press of Florida, 1998), was the first book to explore the early 1960s program that brought over 14,000 Cuban children to the United States as unaccompanied refugees. His second book, Bay of Pigs: An Oral History of Brigade 2506 (University Press of Florida, 2001), was the recipient of the 2001 Samuel Proctor Oral History Prize. In 2013, Triay entered the world of historical fiction with his three-book family saga, The Unbroken Circle. The story depicts the fictional Leon family, whose peaceful, middle class existence is swept suddenly into a tempest of warfare, betrayal, and separation during the early years of the Cuban Revolution. Book I, The Struggle Begins, was released in late July, 2013. The present work, Freedom Betrayed (Book II), was released in early 2014. Book III, On Freedom's Shores, is scheduled to be released in mid-2014.

Many of my relatives left their homeland under emergency circumstances, and it was always very hard to get them to tell the story. One of my uncles was at the Bay of Pigs and did 20 months in prison after his capture. He never once spoke of that time, and reading this novel, I came to a more complete understanding.
Victor Triay is doing tremendous work telling a compelling story that freedom lovers everywhere need to read. Miss the signs and your country can be taken away from you....
I know, I was there 53 years ago. What I felt while reading this book made me go back in time and re-live in painful detail those moments.
Only a writer with great talent can make this magic.
This extremely well written account shows where politics and weak politicians can change the course of history.
I was in the USAF in the early 1960's stationed at Homestead AFB in Florida. The 19th Bomb Wing has a unit citation for the Cuban "Crisis". I think I'll remove mine from my ribbon bar. Come to think of it, I served in Vietnam in the 1960's also, another "political" demonstration ("... and the beat goes on and the beat goes on").
Can't wait for Book III, this is a "must read" author!
