Description

At age eleven, Manuel has already fled with his family from Portugal to Spain, because the seventeenth-century persecution of Jews is less severe there, but passing as Christian becomes more and more difficult as the Inquisition continues.

User reviews

LibraryThing member mayaspector
Although the writing is a bit stilted and the story resolves all too neatly and happily, this story of a young Jewish boy and his family, disguised as Christians in 17th century Spain is facscinating. The horrors of the Inquisition are portrayed without touching the main characters.
