Book Details

There's MAGIC In The Air!

Hazelita is a lonely old woman. Poor and alone, her only possession of value is a magic broom that she inherited from her mother. By sweeping with the magic broom, Hazelita is able to make the wishes of others come true, but her own wish, of a life without loneliness, is beyond her grasp.

The story has a magical ending that comes, not from the powers of the magic broom, but from the magic that can be found in all of us.
