About the Book

Ages 10 and up

A thrilling young adult novel that captures the horrors of the Spanish Inquisistion and the strength and determination of one young girl to preserve her family and culture at any cost.


This commanding novel jars us through its portrayal of the senseless brutality of the Spanish Inquisition and the expulsion of Spain’s Jews in the fifteenth century. It is a lesson related with suspense, emotion, and lasting impact.
