Review: Next Year in Havana

Next year in havana, chanel cleeton

This is a lovely read/audio production.

Cleeton captures the tragedy of the Cuban exile experience and the fate of a people divided. This moving story links the past and the present, skipping a generation to highlight the lives of a grandmother and granddaughter. The chapters set in pre-revolution Cuba beautifully capture the fear, paranoia, terror of the last days of the Baptista regime. Overall, the elegant tale will stay with you long after you've finished.
