Este autor pasó a ser parte de mis favoritos desde que me encontré, por casualidad, en la reducida selección de libros en castellano de Barnes & Noble su otra novela "Las sabias mujeres de La Habana". Para mí es un autor favorito, como dije, porque sus historias son la añoranza y el rescate de un tiempo y un espacio que han pasado a ser míticos para quienes lo vivieron y para lo que no desde la distancia.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684831376, Paperback)

The Secret of the Bulls is a thoroughly enchanting and lush romantic novel, a passionate family saga that brings to life the brilliantly-colored world of prerevolutionary Cuba. It is a love story, the story of Maximiliano and Dolores's lifelong passionate love for one another, anchored firmly in a world where love stories are larger than life, where desires are shamelessly hot, where male pride is fierce, and family loyalty sacred.

Bernardo's original and spellbinding novel explores three generations of love and passion, forbidden kisses, and enduring family pride. The Secret of the Bulls is an epic, lusty novel, sometimes comic, sometimes tragic-a novel that seeks to understand the psychology of machismo in a culture steeped in both tradition and tragedy.

Maximiliano and Delores marry and manage to raise a family, despite parental disapproval, natural disasters, financial hardships, and the "machismo" traditions of Cuban society in the early twentieth century.
