Kidnapped from their parents during the Portuguese Inquisition, Maria and Isobel Ben Lazar were sent to a remote Brazilian monastery. In 1654, they escape and stow away on separate ships. Maria lands in Amsterdam, searching for 12-year-old Isobel and their parents. Befriended by the painter Rembrandt, Maria struggles to overcome her disappointments with hope and determination.
