Street of Death - Mary Ann Mitchell

Set in 15th-century Spain, this tale follows a young woman as she attempts to avoid persecution from the Inquisition, only to be confronted by her past and the danger it brings with it. Young Teresa had no idea that her grandfather was tortured and killed as Jewish heretic, for right after her birth she was sent to a convent with her mother's prayer that her Jewish heritage remain hidden forever. A twist of fate soon brings Teresa into the home of a former Jew, whose son not only knows of her past but puts her in a very dangerous position. Accused of being a witch, Teresa soon finds herself questioning her ability to escape her destiny.
