    Delightful! Put this on MUST Read List

    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. This book is really that good! It was written by award-winning novelist and memoirist Mary Morris, and this is her first book I have read. I definitely intend to read more. This is an ambitious book, starting in 1492 and following one Jewish man’s life and his descendents. He is a crypto-Jew, one who converts to Christianity to escape the Inquisition, but in reality never loses his faith. There is no plot, but there is a beginning, a middle and an end, and it is superbly written. We begin with the present, in the small, poor New Mexico town of Entrada de la Luna and are introduced to Miguel Torres. Miguel dreams of leaving Entrada and looks to the stars for his escape as he dreams of being an astronomer. We then visit the distant past, and are introduced to Luis de Torres. Luis is fluent in many languages, and leaves his wife and children to join Columbus as an interpreter. The voyage is Luis’ means of escaping the Inquisition, with hopes of finding somewhere he can practice his faith freely. Columbus arrives in Cuba, leaving Luis behind with some other sailors to settle La Navidad on the island of Hispaniola. Upon his return, Columbus learns that all the sailors had been killed, which is not surprising based upon their conduct with the local women. Columbus does find a toddler with Luis’ coloring, and this child and his descendents are Miguel’s family. We follow them through the years, on a journey from Spain to Mexico to New Mexico. This book exemplifies the way reading has changed over the years. Many years ago, I would read a book, thinking I need to research something further. Based on my short attention span and having to actually go to the library to research, that may or may not have happened. Now, I’m off to the internet to do immediate research. The subjects of the Inquisition and crypto-Jews fascinated me, and I truly learned something new with this book. Reading this book was an amazing adventure through history!
