About the Book

On her Abuela's (grandmother's) death bed, Estrella Schmitt, discovers that she is a descendant of Conversos (hidden Jews) from Spain. She finds mementos and writings and audiotapes from her ancestor, Estrella Gomez, dating back to 1597, about the harrowing overseas journey and all of the difficulties she endured to find a place of peace, far from the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. That is until she discovers that the Inquisition followed her to New Spain. Her descendent, Estrella, becomes interested in the story of her family and decides to retrace her family's steps to find out more which she does.
