Publisher's Summary

Named one of 2021’s Most Anticipated Historical Novels and Best Beach Reads by Entertainment WeeklyOprah MagazineTravel + LeisureBuzzFeedParadePopSugarBustleSheReads ∙ Brit + Co and more!

"An exciting and inspiring read that shows us how womanhood, courage and revolution are three words that often mean the same thing." (NPR)

At the end of the 19th century, three revolutionary women fight for freedom in New York Times best-selling author Chanel Cleeton's captivating new novel inspired by real-life events and the true story of a legendary Cuban woman - Evangelina Cisneros - who changed the course of history.

A feud rages in Gilded Age New York City between newspaper tycoons William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. When Grace Harrington lands a job at Hearst's newspaper in 1896, she’s caught in a cutthroat world where one scoop can make or break your career, but it’s a story emerging from Cuba that changes her life.

Unjustly imprisoned in a notorious Havana women's jail, 18-year-old Evangelina Cisneros dreams of a Cuba free from Spanish oppression. When Hearst learns of her plight and splashes her image on the front page of his paper, proclaiming her, "The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba," she becomes a rallying cry for American intervention in the battle for Cuban independence.  

With the help of Marina Perez, a courier secretly working for the Cuban revolutionaries in Havana, Grace and Hearst's staff attempt to free Evangelina. But when Cuban civilians are forced into reconcentration camps and the explosion of the USS Maine propels the United States and Spain toward war, the three women must risk everything in their fight for freedom.

Great story!!

So beautifully written! It was hard to turn it off as I needed to know more! So much so, that I finished it in 3 days! It definitely has lit a fire in me to do my own research on this time and how it affected my own family! Off to download Next Year in Havana!

Predictable

This wasn't what I expected of this writer. When she had one of her main characters from the 1800s say "gob smacked" I had to stop listening. I wasted too many hours w/this book and had another hour to go and I just couldn't listen to it any longer. It could have been so much better.

Enjoyed the factual characters

I liked the book but when compared to Cleetons’s other works along this series of Cuban based novels It’s not My favorite. The historical accuracy is on point and always enjoy learning what I can in a fictional novel.

Beautifully written book…

The Most Beautiful Girl In Cuba by Chanel Cleeton was beautifully written. While this is a stand alone book it references characters from the other Cuba books she has written. I have loved each of the,now four, Cuba books. I highly recommend reading not only this book but all four of these stand alone books but I recommend reading them in the order releases. I can’t wait to read her next book.

Loosely based on a true story

I was shocked to find out that some of the characters were real. I learned some history while reading for pleasure :)
