When I first read The Cuban Swimmer by Milcha Sanchez Scott I was amazed of how with all the detail that she gives she was able to create films of it into my mind This story shows that with religion a family was able to stick togetherI believe this novel is very enjoyable for the fact that it gives a message and hope that no matter how hard something is as long as you have faith and believe you can accomplish it Margarita Suarez was a cuban girl competing in a swimming race and supporting her behind in a boat was her family Margarita Suarez had to swim from San Pedro to Catalina Island On the boat was her father who was also her coach and mentor Her mother younger brother and grandmother were also on the boat In a helicopter came a newscast that just made the family feel less The mom and the grandmother where praying to God for help Margarita had to swim through the rough currents oil spills and try to ignore the distraction of her family After a while Margarita felt that she could not continue and her father pressured her to continue Her mother grandmother and margarita herself were praying so she could advance It was dark at night when Margarita got lost and her family could not see her any Her father blamed himself the reporters thought she was dead and her grandmother continue to pray with faith and hope Margarita was later found in Catalina Island she had won the race I believe that the message that Scott is trying to give is that everything is possible as long as you have faith and hope When the story mentions that Margarita wanted to give up and she was nowhere to be found I knew it could not end there because I saw a lot of faith on God from all the family specially the grandmother as stated in the story I don t feel the knife in my heart my little fish is not lost It really surprised me that the news cast gave up on Margarita and believe she was death but all the family was still praying I believe that Scott did this in order to demonstrate how the family stick together with hope on finding her as well as that she was going to win the race with the help from God What happen to Margarita was a miracle thanks to the faith and hope her family carry I think the fact that the family was always together and strongly believe in God was used to get the message through That way people could see that as long as one has faith and hope everything is possible By the way that they portray the characters as spiritual gives this play a big suspense that makes it even interesting
