Adria begs her cook, a proud and loyal woman who values her mistresss friendship, to promise she will protect the mansion from the communist upheaval. Over the next forty years Gladys keeps this promise, despite tremendous emotional and physical loss. When Adrias daughter vacations in Cuba and comes to see her mothers old house, Gladys is forced to confront harsh truths. Not only has Adria forgotten her, but now Glayds is accused of leading a life of betrayal in a house that isnt hers. Gladyss struggle mirrors the cultural divide in Cuba that separates the delicately preserved past from the need to survive that is molding a rough-hewed future from the majestic determination and nobility of the Cuban people.Completely riveting.-NewsdayFirst rate....

Machado uses the kitchen as a metaphor to examine the oppression and betrayals of both exile and revolution. A shining theatrical experience.-The New YorkerPowerful. The] writing is political and unflinching.-Miami Herald
