Review: Kirkus Reviews - August 15, 2004
"A thoughtful, balanced addition to the frequently contentious scholarship on U.S.-Cuban history."
Review by: Susan Fernandez, Miami Herald - August 15, 2004
"Although there are many books by and about the Pedro Pans, The Lost Apple is one of the best. Torres manages to keep a healthy historical balance in a tricky political landscape, never losing her footing along the way . . . The Lost Apple moves along like a good novel [and] Torres even makes politics come alive."
Review by: Gustavo PÈrez Firmat, Author of Life on the Hyphen: The Cuban-American Way - August 15, 2004
"Deeply felt and impressively researched, The Lost Apple undertakes the difficult work of reconciliationóbetween parents and children, exiles and revolutionaries, the Cuba of yesterday and the Cuba of today."
