Chapter 12 Summary

The reader experiences Magda's life in the United States through her letters. She writes to Emilia daily and Emilia does the same. She also receives a letter from Jaime who tells her of the political climate in Uruguay. Jaime proposes marriage in the letter but Magda does not respond. Instead she writes to Marco.

Marco writes about the news in Uruguay because he is involved with the student demonstrations. His father's military connections keep him out of trouble with the law. When the state is taken over by a dictator who is not sympathetic towards the people, his connections help to keep Marco alive.

Through their correspondence, Magda and Marco continue to grow closer. They miss each other and speak of Magda's return to Uruguay and their plans to go to the Beatles movie Help! when she returns.
