Great Read

This is a great book by an awesome new writer. Fabiola Santiago makes you fall in love with her character and relate to the relationships throughout her life. I picked it up and didn't want to put it down until I was done. I can't wait for her to write another book...put this on your summer Must Read list!

Full of steamy passion and sweet nostalgia

Somewhere between Matanzas and Miami, Fabiola Santiago fell in love with Paris. Santiago combines her passion for the romantic city by the Seine with her personal insights into the Cuban culture of Miami. The result, "Reclaiming Paris," is an excellent first novel, rich with characterization and detail. The central character is Marisol, whose life journey is delineated by a series of unfulfilled relationships and a longing for something that seems beyond her reach. Despite the title, the main focus of "Reclaiming Paris" is Cuban Miami, and it is an excellent book for both Cubans searching for connections to their roots and non-Cubans wanting a taste of this rich Latin culture. Full of steamy passion and sweet nostalgia, "Reclaiming Paris" is a great read!

A great book!

This is a great book for every woman who has ever loved and lost. I felt a tremendous kinship with Marisol, the main character, and the cast of characters that made up her inner circle -- her vivacious, tells-it-like-it-is best friend, devoted grandmother and stream of zany boy toys. At times I felt as if the characters were taken from my own life! I found myself longing for their company days after finishing the book.

Transported me to another world!

Can't wait for the author's next book! This one was amazing, I had to slow down reading because I didn't want it to end. It really brought you in and you traveled everywhere the book goes. Tastes, sounds, feelings--amazing.
