Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Surrounded by her large family, Loma is happy in the juderia of Alcala de Henares, Spain. But when her intimidating grandfather, her Belo, decides to bring her along on his travels, she's excited to join him. Belo has the ear of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, and Loma soon learns how dangerous the world is for the Jews of Spain - and how Belo's influence keeps their people safe. At first, Loma relishes her adventures with Belo, adventures that are beyond the scope of what most girls living in Spain are able to do - Jewish, Muslim, or Christian. Yet the older she gets, the more she longs for a family of her own. But will Belo ever allow her to leave his side?
