Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595380476, Paperback)

Kidnapped from her parents during the Portuguese Inquisition, 12-year old Isobel BenLazar was sent to work as a slave at a remote Brazilian monastery. In 1654, Isobel escapes and stows away on a ship bound for Amsterdam, searching for her family. But harrowing adventures lead her to the first group of Jews to settle in America.

“Weaves history, drama and narrative into an arresting story.”
New York Times Book Review

“An uplifting…story…built upon twin themes long common to Jewish thought—hope and deliverance.”
Kirkus Reviews
