|Although the family has been converted to Catholicism, they still practice
rituals and traditions of Judaism in secret. Customs give many away. In a hostile environment
a perilous adventure story emerges to shine a bright light on the Crespin family. After
being pursued for almost two hundred years, will they survive when most of the Americas
are ruled by Spain? Not unlike many immigrant journeys today, religion becomes an issue for those accused.
Based on transcripts during the Inquisition, the book utilizes actual people as well as facts, culinary customs and research from the Southwest Territories. It reveals one of the most obscure and dramatic episodes in Mexican and Jewish history. A great read for history buffs, curiosity seekers and those searching their past for explanations.
