A ‘Florida through Cuba’ story-journey; An Adventure-Suspense Novel by Local Author, PENELLE
2 years of an author’s work culminates in a story with historic revision, the drama of fear and love, and 21st Century realities…Cuba has been in U.S. consciousness for centuries and through the Republic’s particular history, glory and suffering, we recognize today a people of great heart. We share the fears of uncertain futures and are tempered by the belief for great possibilities. The novel PASSAGE to CUBA, Quest for the Masque of Gold unfolds both the Cuban landscape for a reader to savor and the mystique that is its people; modern characters, both American and Cuban; neighbors who can evolve.
After much challenge to balance the literary elements of a multi-layered true and fictionalized story, a new book about Cuba is finally in print! A big accomplishment for a little author with a suspense-full pen.
Author signings take place around the country in the months ahead, but locally PENELLE can be met at Parker’s Books, located on Main Street in Sarasota, at Lemon: September 5th and 19th from 10 a.m. to 2p.m. She will appear at several speaking engagements locally and is scheduled for a Barnes & Noble appearance late this year.
