BRIGHT SUMMER by Ernie Rydberg


Email this review


Young, crippled Teresita Madrigal, daughter in a southern California Mexican fruit picking family, spends a summer at home that has its sunny and its realistic moments. She loves to draw and has happy times going orange and lemon picking, to a fiesta and on excursions around the small settlement of La Golondrina. There's a problem when the Madrigal's need to work prevents Teresita's return to school and a favorite teacher, but when she does, there is the promise that her crippled leg can be cured by an operation. Authentic atmosphere.
