Since the historic joint announcement by U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raúl Castro on December 17, 2014 initiating a renewal of diplomatic relations between the two countries, after half a century of Cold War era strife, the world's attention has increasingly been focused on Cuba's people, immediate future and history. In this book, A Window Into Cuba's Soul, Amaria Rebiai takes her readers through an uncommonly personal journey into the lives of fifteen Cuban people as they navigate this impending momentous shift in their nation's history. Recounted through captivating photography and eye-opening stories, the poignancy of this photojournalistic work is enhanced by the fact that each of these fifteen individuals are connected in some way. They are family members, long-time friends, and close neighbors. The stories of their lives reveal the true history and current realities of Cuba in an incredibly intimate way. Ofelia, for instance, recalls an episode when the revolutionary figure Che Guevara came into her family's home in Santa Clara after being wounded in battle to seek treatment.
