Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton
In 2017, after the death of her beloved grandmother, Marisol, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity--and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution…
Flash back to Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba's high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country's growing political unrest--until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary...
Arriving in Havana, in 2017, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba's timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she'll need the lessons of her grandmother's past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.
I really enjoyed the structure of this book and how it flashes back from 2017 to 1958 and revolutionary Cuba. I didn’t know much about Cuba or this part of Cuba’s history so I found the historical details of this book to be fascinating. I love when a book teaches me something new and this one did exactly that. It taught me about Cuba and its history, wrapped up in a beautiful family saga and duel love stories!
