Chapter 7 – 1: Louise meets blue-eyed Michael from Cuba


She remembered meeting Miguel. It was 1942, and he was from Cuba. She thought he had gorgeous blue eyes. The couple had an evening date, and went to the Havana–Madrid nightclub for dinner. Louise was eighteen and Miguel was twenty-nine. He ordered cocktails and bought her a pack of Luckies from the cigarette girl. The live show of Latin music, and his smooth, controlled dancing seemed so sophisticated.
