Synopsis:

In this vibrant, lyrical novel, a woman discovers a shocking family secret: her Cuban ancestors were conversos--Jews who converted to Christianity during the Spanish Inquisition.

Her articles have appeared in Vogue, The Nation, Ms. Latina, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Reader, Girlfriend, High Performance, New City, and Chicago Reporter.
