Recommended Read!

The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba is a story of three women, yes not just one, amid the war between Cuba and Spain in the nineteenth century. Grace Harrington, an American reporter who is trying to make her way in a man’s world, Marina Perez, an undercover revolutionary, and Evangelina Cisneros, a prominent member of the revolution to free Cuba. All had played a very important role in paving the way for the people of Cuba and the women in both countries. It’s a story of love, loyalty, and sacrifice.

Cleeton’s story revealed the gut wrenching truth of what women in this time lived through. She pulled me in her story and let me experience it as if it were my own. I felt their need to survive, to fight, and to sacrifice what was needed. What these women sacrificed for the sake of freedom and survival was heartbreaking yet awe inspiring and heartwarming. I cried for the sacrifices they made and relieved for them when the war was over.

I absolutely love everything about this book, especially the characters and the stories that made them as real as you and me. I don’t know how many times, I will say this but yet again, Cleeton did not disappoint.
