Opinion

From Library Staff

n 1961 after Castro has come to power in Cuba, fourteen-year-old Lucia and her seven-year-old brother are sent to the United States when her parents, who are not in favor of the new regime, fear that the children will be taken away from them as others have been.

Lucia and her brother are forced to flee to the United States and leave their parents behind when Castro comes to power. This story details the vivid colors, history and smells of a Cuba which will never be the same.
