Insightful, Engaging & Thoughtful
I have to say that when I started this I really had no idea how much I would enjoy it. "The Cuban Chronicles: A True Tale of Rascals, Rogues, and Romance" is the kind of thoughtful memoir that sucks you in and takes you on an adventure of spirit, soul and life... weaving emotions, actions and thoughtful insights around you as you trek right alongside Wanda St Hilaire.
The author really has a gift for writing that shines through as she recounts her experiences in Cuba, from romance to preconceived notions and everything in between. The writing is lush, refreshing and vividly engaging; Ms. St Hilaire draws the reader into Cuba, it's culture and her honest opinions of everything to do with the country from the oppressive regime to the beautiful people who inhabit the island country. The book is a thoughtful exploration of Ms. St Hilaire as a woman, as a tourist and as a human with emotions and discoveries to be revealed.
Overall, this is a wondrously engaging and well-written travel memoir that delves into Wanda St Hilaire as a person and her experiences within the beautifully restrictive boundaries of Cuba. This was well worth the read and I would recommend it to others looking for an enjoyable and enlightening travel book to read.
