Enchanted Air: Two Cultures, Two Wings: A Memoir by Margarita Engle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this as part of the 2016 Hub Challenge and Margarita Engle's book ripped my heart apart for her loss and longing for Cuba, her mother's homeland. While Magarita remembers her younger years, her poetry weaves a life between 2 worlds that she embraced - horses, gardens, food and relatives of Cuba and her American life that she loves but does not understand why relations are so strained between the two countries she loves. Highly recommended as all Margarita Engle's books are- but this book is her memoir and is very special in verse, memories, and history.
