Listeners will be captivated by this intriguing historical novel about the late-nineteenth-century Cuban quest for independence from Spanish rule. The story centers on the real-life "most beautiful girl in Cuba," Evangelina Cisneros, who was wrongfully imprisoned when she rebuffed the advances of a Spanish commander. Frankie Corzo's impressive narration animates Evangelina's resolve and determined spirit. In a reflective tone that conveys emotional depth, Rebecca Soler portrays Marina Perez, who acts as a courier for the Cuban revolutionaries. Reporting for William Randolph Hearst's newspaper is novice investigative journalist Grace Harrington, deftly presented by Holly Linneman in a light pitch and contemplative tone. Each narrator also creates vibrant male character portrayals, and Corzo and Soler provide authentic Spanish pronunciations. M.J. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
