Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton

After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity–and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution … Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba’s high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country’s growing political unrest–until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary … Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa’s last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba’s tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she’ll need the lessons of her grandmother’s past to help her understand the true meaning of courage–and what it means to be Cuban.

As a way to gain a better understanding of other cultures and places, Estelle has traveled to every province in Canada and several countries, as well as volunteered in the Yukon, Ecuador, Kenya and Rwanda.

In Prince Albert, Estelle founded and led three groups (Prince Albert Salsa, Prince Albert Young Professionals, and the Prince Albert Federal Liberal Association), is a board member, frequent volunteer and participant in community activities, a Big Sister and served as a foster parent.

"50 Shades of Gray" is the kind of cultural phenomenon that most would like to indulge in alone. Filled with S&M, highly suggestive scenes and a lot of romance, understandably, a lot of people are embarrassed to admit that they read the book or watched the movie. The members of this fictional book club are not. To liven up their discussions, four friends decide to take on E.L. James' erotic book. Reading it might be just the thing these women need to make over their love lives, from the bedroom to getting back into dating and rekindling an old romance.

Professor Goodman doesn't believe in ghosts. After all, everything in his scientific mind indicates to him that ghost stories are hogwash. But then he comes across a fascinating file that challenges his entire thought process. Containing the devastating details of three terrifying hauntings, this file wields the ability to transform his entire life. And it won't be long before he discovers that perhaps the spirits enjoy the challenge of dealing with a lifelong skeptic such as him.
