A poignant multicultural ode to family and what it means to create a home as one girl helps her Tia move away from her beloved Miami apartment. When Estrella's Tia Fortuna has to say goodbye to her longtime Miami apartment building, The Seaway, to move to an assisted living community, Estrella spends the day with her. Tia explains the significance of her most important possessions from both her Cuban and Jewish culture, as they learn to say goodbye together and explore a new beginning for Tia. A lyrical book about tradition, culture, and togetherness, Tia Fortuna's New Home explores Tia and Estrella's Sephardic Jewish and Cuban heritage. Through Tia's journey, Estrella will learn that as long as you have your family, home is truly where the heart is.
