Overview

Is love at first sight possible? Can true love last forever? How many times can love conquer impossible obstacles?

"Strides of Destiny" is a true love story that gives new meaning to the words love, fate and destiny. It passionately depicts love's triumph and perseverance during the many hardships and uncertainties experienced by a young couple who are ultimately separated against their will -- with no hope of ever reuniting again.

Alex and Loly's adolescent romance begins during the 1950's when life's cadence on the exuberant and exotic Caribbean Island is mixed with flowers' fragrances and sea breeze. But their life together is interrupted when political instability in the country prompts a revolutionary movement that turns their paradise into a place of despair.

The island of paradise suddenly suffers a social and political metamorphosis imposed by the new regime of Fidel Castro. Lack of freedom and human rights generates drastic decisions and each day people leave behind their property and assets, and their families and loved ones. Uncertain if they will ever see each other again, many families cannot bear the tests and trials of the separation.

Alex and Loly's love and faith help them hope and persevere, even though their reunion seems distant and unattainable. But is this feeling strong enough to survive all the tests and tribulations that life presents them?

    Excellent book. I was moved and lost myself in the story.

    The length of the book was perfect. The description of places, the chronological order of events and finally the honesty of the feelings. I felt the book to be a very real depiction of a dramatic set of cicumstances that kept a passionate young familly apart. I very much aapreciate the sincerity the autor demonstrated in the humanity of the characters. I love this book and highly recommend it ; a must read!
