What are Amy and Adam going to do about their love life? Neither Amy's traditionalist Japanese parents nor Adam's snobby, upper-class mother will accept their relationship.

In 1492 people of the Jewish faith were leaving Spain by the thousands. Not even the Conversos, those who had converted to the Catholic faith, were safe. Inquistors sought out heretics and encouraged informers to report anyone who might not be truly Catholic. Those accused were then questioned and tortured. Those declared guilty could be burned at the stake. This audiobook confronts issues of faith and bigotry, while wrestling with the questions of loyalty, betrayal, and the secrets that may lie in every human heart.
