Carmen Fernandez

Cuban rafters Based on real events, **Cuban Rafters: A Memoir of Courage and Survival**
"Cuban Rafters" is a poignant memoir written by Carmen Vazquez-Fernandez, who was born in Havana, Cuba. From a young age, Carmen showed a passion for writing, beginning her literary journey at the age of twelve by contributing articles to various magazines. However, her life took a dramatic turn in 1991 when she embarked on a perilous journey from Cuba to seek freedom.

This memoir is based on real events and recounts the departure of four young Cubans, including Carmen, who in 1991 dared to escape the oppressive regime of Fidel Castro. Their harrowing ordeal at sea is depicted with raw honesty, capturing the fear, desperation, and hope that fueled their journey.

"Cuban Rafters" serves as a powerful denunciation of the tyranny under Castro's dictatorship. It highlights the tragic fate of thousands who perished in the Straits of Florida in their quest for freedom. This narrative is a testament to the resilience and courage of those who risk everything for a chance to find freedom.
