‘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.’–Susan Fernandez, Miami Herald

‘A thoughtful, balanced addition to the frequently contentious scholarship on U.S.-Cuban history.’–Kirkus Reviews

‘Deeply felt and impressively researched, The Lost Apple undertakes the difficult work of reconciliation-between parents and children, exiles and revolutionaries, the Cuba of yesterday and the Cuba of today.’–Gustavo PÈrez Firmat, author of Life on the Hyphen: The Cuban-American Way
