Hidden Ones – A Veil of Memories
A grandmother in an Inquisition prison in Mexico. Officials who search and burn every soul not devoted to the church. A granddaughter on the verge of becoming a woman, a city that has turned hostile and a perilous adventure story from another era.
Can they run with their precious abuela? Historical fiction at its best as a bright light shines on the Crespin family in their attempt to survive in 17th century Mexico when most of the Americas are ruled by Spain.
With a passion for research, award-winning author Marcia Fine explores the world of Sephardic Jews who have been on the run for hundreds of years since the evil Queen Isabella chased them out of Spain in 1492. Where did they go? How did they keep their faith alive?
