Résumé : "In this powerful, page-turner, Chanel Cleeton has interwoven the stories of three unforgettable historical women against the fiery backdrop of the Spanish-American war and the Cuban fight for freedom from the Spanish. Using the brave acts of real-life historical women as inspiration, The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba shines the light on the fierce women who played a critical role in this important juncture in time -- women who are determined not to be forgotten." — Marie Benedict , New York Times bestselling author of The Mystery of Mrs. Christi e     “Cleeton always delivers! This time, with The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba , a well-researched tale set against the backdrop of a newspaper war. With moguls determined to drag the United States into the conflict between Cuba and Spain, this novel's women--the reporter, the revolutionary, and the beauty--are all brought vividly to life in a lovingly rendered novel about the triumphs and tragedies of war.” — Stephanie Dray , New York Times bestselling author of The Women of Chateau Layfayette   “Grace Harrington is my new favourite heroine. I was absolutely fascinated by the world of stunt girl reporters and newspaper wars that she throws herself into, just as I was equal parts enthralled and heartbroken by the story of Evangelina Cisneros, the most beautiful – and courageous – girl in Cuba. And how wonderful to meet another member of the Perez family – the plucky Marina, whose story intertwines with the other women's. Nobody writes about Cuban women – their lives, their loves and their bravery – like Chanel Cleeton does. A truly beautiful book.” — Natasha Lester , New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Secret “Historical fiction fans will love this novel and its perfectly detailed descriptions of a long-gone era. This is another slam-dunk from Cleeton.”  — Library Journal (starred review) “An enchanting historical novel…. Cleeton skillfully brings off the three strong women’s heartbreaking stories with intriguing twists and turns and a delightful finale. With impeccable research and perfect pacing, Cleeton makes the most of her subject.” — Publishers Weekly “With a splash of romance and a healthy helping of history, this novel will be a hit for all collections.” — Booklist "A truly fascinating novel, layered with drama and danger in which Cleeton shines a light on Cuba's battle for independence through the voices of three dynamic women. As always, Cleeton writes with a passion for her subject that is evident on every page. The depth of her research, and the authenticity of her characters, ensures a wonderfully immersive and compulsive read." — Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of When We Were Young and Brave "Chanel Cleeton uncovers a fascinating bit of little-known history about the Spanish-American War and delivers the real-life story of Evangelina Cisneros in glorious, page-turning detail. The events of her life stoked the circulation wars between Pulitzer and Hearst and highlighted the power of the press. Filled with rich historical facts and strong-minded female characters, you'll want to keep Google open to learn even more about Cuba’s struggle for independence. The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba is Cleeton’s best book yet!” — Renee Rosen , National bestselling author Park Avenue Summer "Entertaining, educational, and deeply moving, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN CUBA is an unputdownable read - I couldn't get enough of the admirable women characters, the history, and the prevailance of romance and hope." — Evie Dunmore , National bestselling author of A Rogue of One’s Own   “Chanel Cleeton’s latest page-turner braids together ambitious Gilded Age threads—the seamy world of yellow journali...
