The Sugar Industry in the Dominican Republic

I’ve spent most of this last, um, year (And when I say year I mean eighteen months or so. A fast writer I am not.) working on the second Arroyo Blanco novel, A Time for Desire. In it, Roberto Sandoval and Rosa Castillo, who you might remember as one of the suffragettes from A Summer for Scandal, have to face one of the American-owned sugar companies that were so ubiquitous in the Dominican Republic in the beginning of the 20th century.

 

If you’d like to read more about them—the sugar corporations, not Rosa and Roberto—please head over to my latest post on Edwardian Promenade.
