Description

CASTILE, 1461: Eleven years have passed since Fernan Hernandes, a converso whose Jewish ancestors were forced to become Catholic, and his wife, whose people remained Jews, fled Toledo to escape foreseeable persecution. The dramatic story, begun in Between Testaments, Marrano, continues as Fernan, mourning the death of his father, returns to Castile to reorder family affairs. But events darker than familial tragedy await him. Accusations of foul crimes confront conversos and drive him to seek a path of political influence with King Enrique IV. After many trials, Fernan becomes an advisor to the King and plunges into the maelstrom of Castilian politics-- including the bitter love-hate between Enrique and the Marques de Villena, and the deadly greed of Juan II of Aragon--all preface to a bloody civil war. Based on historic events in Spain during the turbulent fifteenth century, P. E. Jeffe weaves a vibrant tapestry of the struggles of Fernan and his family and the intrigues of prominent nobles of the time, blending true and imagined into an exhilarating tale rich with gripping narrative and memorable characters.
