Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

During the Spanish Inquisition, 16-year-old Estrella and her family, Conversos who practice their Jewish faith in secret, face violent persecution by Christian soldiers. In a starred review, PW called this a "fascinating glimpse of a past civilization-with reverberations for both past and present," noting, "Estrella's spare, eloquent narrative evokes her sorrow and her determination to survive and never to forget the atrocities she has witnessed." Ages 12-up. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
