The Laurel of Asheville reviews HLTN

However Long the Night David Pereda In local author David Pereda's latest novel, Cuban-born, award-winning Miami architect and real estate developer Cid Milan is at a crossroads in his life. His dying father confesses to him the truth about a 25-yrear-old family secret. Cid then realizes he has no choice but to unravel the mystery of his past and, if he can, right the wrongs committed. Winner of the Lighthouse Book Award for fiction and the Royal Palm Award for fiction, However Long the Night is a tantalizing romantic tale interlaced with suspense, a tense love triangle, family secrets and corporate shenanigans, all playing out against an historical background. In the story, Cid's quest forces him to rediscover himself and his roots as he searches frantically throughout Cuba for Sandra, his teenage flame, and the secret she's kept from him all these years: his son. In the process, Cid learns lessons about love, forgivess and redemption that change his life forever. Pereda is an award-winning author and college writing and ESL instructor living in Asheville, and is a contributor to The Laurel of Asheville. He is the regional director of Florida Writer's Association's Western North Carolina division, and the founder of Asheville's Writing Enthusiasts. - The Laurel of Asheville, May 2012
