Author Brenda Sparks Prescott moves back and forth between a Cuban and American families trying to protect their children by sending them to a safer area than Havana and a military base outside Washington D.C. The Cuban family has some significant interfamily rivalries and brothers and sisters are pitted against each other; however, the presence of Russian missiles forces the wives to devise an escape plan. Meanwhile, there is a clear racial divide on the military base, with the blacks in some key supporting roles, such as Master Sergeant in charge of supplies versus the white General and his wife.
