I never really thought about this before, but Cuba played a pretty substantial part in the Civil War. It’s only ninety miles off the coast of Florida, after all. That’s the main takeaway I’ve gotten so far from Robin Lloyd’s nautical adventure novel Harbor of Spies, though I confess I’m not even a quarter of the way through the book and I might just abandon ship (sorry). Reviews are pretty universally positive, but I just can’t read more than a few pages without my mind wandering over to other more pressing 21st-century concerns. Savoy Bookshop and Cottrell Brewing’s joint event might still be worth checking out, though.
