Out of Many Waters
This off-the-beaten-track book was a great find! Not only is this historical fiction book well written and uplifting, but the plot is captivating, the characters are compelling, and the time period is interesting. Two Jewish sisters are kidnapped by religious friars and sent to a monastery in Brazil for “reeducation” during the Portuguese Inquisition in 1654. When the sisters implement an escape plan, a suspenseful adventure ensues. Don’t judge this book by its cover; this is a fantastic and suspenseful story that most readers will really enjoy while also learning more about people, places, history, and Jewish religious customs. I do not recommend the sequel to this book because of an inappropriate scene.
