"The year is 1493, and young Jewish sailor Diego Mendoza has returned from Columbus's triumphant first voyage with tales of lush landscapes, rivers running with gold, and welcoming locals, But back home in Spain, Diego finds the Inquisition at its terrifying peak, and he must protect his spirited sister, Rachel, from betrayal and death. Disguising herself as a boy, Rachel sneaks onto Columbus's second expedition, bound for the new lands they call the Indies. As the Spaniards build their first settlements and search for gold, Diego and Rachel fall in love with the place, people, and customs. Still forced to hide their religius faith and Rachel's true identity, the brother and sister witness the Spaniards' dvastation of the island in their haste to harvest riches." -- From publisher description.
