Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Miklowitz does a fine job of making the Spanish Inquisition seem frighteningly real, and the story shows depth and dimension...Use this in conjunction with history classes but recommend it as a page-turner, too." (Booklist)

Narrator

I liked the story but the narrator should have had a Spaniard accent to pronounce the names correctly and make the story more vivid
