Review When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton

Tuesday, April 09, 2019

In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life--and heart--to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author
of Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.

Beautiful. Daring. Deadly. 

The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez--her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro's inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost.

As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future--but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything--not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart...


❝It seems remarkably stupid to give my heart to a man who can never be mine.❞

I have loved Chanel's book from the very beginning!She is so talented and each time she has a new story I'm eager to see what she has for us!Next Year in Havana was a phenomenal read and one of my top favorite books for the previous year!Now we have When We Left Cuba which was so good!

The historical part like the first book was magical, unique,original and so intense.From the first page till the end I was feeling like I was a part of this world and the characters .
Even though I adored it, I didn't fell the same love I did with Next Year in Havana and this is why it was 4 stars and not 5.Still I can say this is going to touch your hearts.

If you are looking for a captivating story that will make you travel while you are reading it this is perfect for you!
