In the spring of 1956, a young American photographer falls in love with a Cuban line cook in New York. They have a ten-week affair which ends when Immigration arrests and deports him, and by then Clare Miller is pregnant.
Few Americans know the name Camilo Cienfuegos. All Cubans do. He was the most charismatic of Castros rebel commanders. But Clare, who never hears from him after hes deported, believes he has died in Fidels invasion of the island. She marries a wealthy Cuban businessman and moves to Havana with her two-year-old daughter, only to discover that her first love is not only still alive, hes now head of the Cuban Army. Clare knows that Camilo likes to dance and drink. He likes women, and too many women like him. Though his courage is legendary, when he comes to visit at night hes afraid of his daughters moods. He feeds her, he reads to her, he changes her diapers, but for him an all-night march would be easier. Clare worries that hell never make a good parent, but she cannot resist him.
