Drama, 1935 Florida, strong female characters
Follow the lives of three very different women in this drama/romance set in a time period of Florida rich in unknown history-- at least history unknown to me. A storm organically weaves the characters lives together, a setting provides a turbulent backdrop, and a time creates plot elements that will be new and refreshing to most readers.
Cleeton knows how to create a plot that is engaging and educates the reader in cultural and historical aspects. Not only are you entertained, you feel time well spent in gaining an understanding. If you enjoy this novel, Cleeton has also written a novel which takes the reader to 1958 Cuba and the build up to the revolution. Next Year in Havana also delivers in aspects of suspense, romance, and historical fiction that takes you to that setting and time.
