From the Editor

As a devoted fan of period dramas set in exotic locales, I’m always on the lookout for books that are able to make a particular time and place come alive as vividly as the characters. Written with a distinctly cinematic flair, The Price of Paradise transports us to a world that is now forever lost in the sands of time. Gloria and Patricio are a pair of star-crossed lovers in 1950s Cuba, on the cusp of the revolution. With El Encanto—the iconic Havana department store that set the bar for luxury shopping around the world—as the center of their love affair and a symbol of all that was and could have been, the glamour and decadence of prerevolutionary Cuba comes galloping into view. In the tradition of the great epic storytellers—with an added touch of the telenovela—Gloria and Patricio’s romance, spanning half a century and set against the tragic backdrop of a country in the midst of great political violence and change, is a love story for the ages.
