Surrounded by her large family, Loma is happy living in a Jewish community in 15th-century Spain. Her intimidating grandfather, Belo, has the ear of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, and Loma relishes her adventures with him. She soon learns just how dangerous the world is for the Jews of Spain, and how her grandfather's influence keeps their people safe. But in this tale for readers 9 to 12 by the author of the Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted, the older Loma gets, the more she longs to realize her own dreams—if Belo will ever allow her to leave his side.
