It's time for a fun summer read with spies and romance. For August we will read When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton.
We will be meeting in the Wegmans cafe on the 2nd floor. We will have some guided questions for the book to help drive the conversation but we will keep it fairly casual and get to know each other.
Feel free to bring little refreshments if you are so inclined or grab something from Wegmans for yourself.
Here is a short description of the book:
"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..."
