it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction, jewish-reading, quick-reads-fast-moving

Wow. It took me awhile to actually read this book because when I first stumbled upon it, it wasn't available on kindle. Then I waited because I needed fast moving books to keep interested with my busy life. Who says fast moving needs to be mindless? Couldn't put the book down. Finished in two weeks and was sad when the story was over. Well written historical fiction. Reminds me why I love historical fiction. Characters are believable and so full of life and stories to tell. Helps bring clarity to a dark time, but also the resiliency of people. My own great grandmother was forced to convert to get into America. Only now after her death have I reconnected my family with our Jewish roots. I really understood on a basic level the emotions Tomas and Gabriel had to their ancestors religion and so grateful I can live a Jewish life with my children now.
