Summary The Blood of the Conquistadores

The only first person narrative is told by Chucha and concludes the chapter. This is an unusual perspective to tell this moment of the plot, when the Garcia family has finally left the Dominican Republic for good. This is the most decisive turning point for the Garcia family, yet it is told from the point of view of a woman who was often ignored, misunderstood, or forgotten by various family members.
