Dear Reader,

Maria Sirena tells stories. She does it for money — she was a favorite in the cigar factory where she worked as a lectora — and for love, spinning gossamer tales out of her own past for the benefit of friends, neighbors, and family. But now, like a modern-day Scheherazade, she will be asked to tell one last story so that eight women can keep both hope and themselves alive.

In a single room on the top floor of the governor's mansion, Maria Sirena begins to tell the incredible story of her childhood during Cuba's Third War of Independence. Stories, however, have a way of taking on a life of their own and, transported by her story's momentum, Maria Sirena will reveal more about herself than she or anyone ever expected.

I'm giving away 5 copies of THE DISTANT MARVELS. Write cmacevedo@yahoo.com for a chance to win.
