This book is sold as a historical romance, where you learn about a fictional, famous, old Hollywood actress and all her marriages. What you get is a book that stars a bisexual, Cuban woman who was never allowed to talk about the love of her life; her wife.

On top of this being a powerful book about race, sexuality, misogyny, and having to conform to societies norms, the true meaning I took from this book is that life is short, and we shouldn’t spend it pretending to be something we aren’t. We shouldn’t spend it doing anything less than loving the people who are worthy and deserving of our love.
