Year Reviewed:: 2016
Review: Margarita describes in poetic format how she lives for summer when a plane trip will whisk her away from her lonely existence in noisy, crowded Los Angeles and deposit her on the lush, vibrant island of Cuba. When revolution breaks out in Cuba and tensions with the United States culminate at the Bay of Pigs, Margarita fears she will never again be able to glide through the enchanted air and visit her mother's homeland.
