Based on the real events of Operation Pedro Pan, a covert exodus where over 14,000 Cuban children were sent to the United States, The Red Umbrella is a moving story of culture, family, and identity. In 1961, two years after the Communist revolution, fourteen-year-old Lucía Álvarez finds her life forever changed when soldiers arrive in her Cuban town. To ensure their safety, her parents make the difficult decision to send Lucía and her brother to America—completely on their own. After arriving in Nebraska, Lucía must learn to adapt to her new life while still dreaming of the day her family will be together once more.
