The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba

by

The latest novel by Chanel Cleeton is set in the late 1800’s during the Spanish-American War. Three main female protagonists are Grace, a newspaper reporter; Evangeline, a young Cuban woman unjustly imprisoned, and Marina, a Cuban woman trying desperately to feed her daughter while interned in a work camp. Their lives intertwine, as Grace and Marina aid in planning Evangeline’s escape from the horrible prison Recogidas. William Randolph Hearst is another central figure in drawing attention to the plight of the Cubans, who are attempting to overthrow the Spanish, and ultimately involving the U.S. I enjoy reading historical fiction, as much information can be learned about the past in an entertaining fashion.
