Synopsis

Estrella deMadrigal thought she knew herself: daughter, granddaughter, sister, dearest friend, beloved. She is Star in the Night Sky, Truth in the Darkness. But truth is rare and precious in this cruel and unforgiving century in Spain, when Jews who refused conversion to Christianity risked everything - love, life, family, faith. Then: A startling discovery shakes Estrella’s world to the core. And yet, it is something small and sweet that sets it aflame. A kiss. A kiss from someone she is forbidden to love. As a new girl emerges from the cocoon of secrets in which she has been shrouded, passion burns and friendship crumbles - and betrayal unleashes a monstrous evil from the very deepest part of the earth. Estrella crosses over to a place she never thought she could be; she is someone she never could have imagined. Remember the story she is about to tell you.

The narrator's accent is interesting, but the sound needed to be clearer so it didn't get in the way. A nice listen that address prejudice and religious intolerance. Certainly relevant today. However, I would imagine that one of the themes of the story is identity. Estrella is certain she is a Christian only to find out her parents and brother have secretly been Jews the whole time. Yet her identity does not undergo a crisis she accepts it easily as her family is slaughtered. I understand the author did not want to have a doctinal debate, but to overlook it entirely, seems a shameful gap in the narrative.
