Bambola (Rebekah’s Treasure) elevates a simple historical tale into something transcendent, in this beautifully written novel about a young Jewish noblewoman, Isabel, who flees the Inquisition on Christopher Columbus’s second voyage to the New World. Isabel is an unforced convert to Christianity, much to her mother’s dismay. When members of the Inquisition take an untoward interest in her, Isabel’s parents make haste to send her away to the New World with her brand-new husband: a virtual stranger who had been her sister’s betrothed. Of course, nothing in their new home is what they were promised. While Isabel struggles with the difference between what is and what is not permitted of the faithful, she must also come to terms with the hardships of her new homeland. Filled with plentiful demonstrations of abiding faith, Isabel’s story is one of strength and perseverance in a time when women were expected to have neither. (BookLife)
