"Riveting drama and sensuous prose make for an unforgettable love story." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
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.
As their lives become unexpectedly intertwined, Perla, Julian and Sophie are forced to confront their suffering and reimagine their futures in surprising and unconventional ways.
In A Cuban Russian American Love Story, Adam Pelzman has written a poignant and inspiring novel about three wounded people who attempt to turn tragedy into beauty-and discover that love, forgiveness and healing can sometimes be found in the most unlikely places.
