When Loma's intimidating grandfather decides to bring her along on his travels across Spain, she experiences the perils and heartaches of a people whose very presence is less and less tolerated in the age of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand.

And the older she gets, the more she longs for a family of her own—if her grandfather will ever allow her to leave his side.

Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine tells a moving and ambitious story about a young Jewish girl who must play her own role in her people's epic history—no matter the sacrifice.
