    In 1483, the Inquisition cast a shadow over many living in Spain. Born into a powerful Jewish family, young Loma becomes a traveling companion and, increasingly, caretaker and advisor for Belo, her ailing, autocratic grandfather. For years, she watches and learns as he uses his wiles, his family's wealth, and his longstanding relationships with the Spanish monarchs and archbishops to protect the Jews. As she matures, Loma aches to marry and raise a family, but she must set that dream aside. And by 1492, when the Jews are expelled from Spain, her experiences on the road have brought her the wits, wisdom, and determination she needs to survive and help her people. Inspired by family history, Levine's latest novel offers a fascinating portrayal of Loma as a shy, conciliatory, intelligent child whose unusual upbringing leads to broad understanding and insights into power. The first-person narrative uses details of daily life to bring the period more sharply into focus for readers, while the appended author's note offers further information. A well-researched historical novel from an accomplished storyteller. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
