Teaser Tuesday: By Fire, By Water

Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB, asks you to choose two sentences at random from your current read. Identify the author and title for readers.


By Fire, By Water


By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan

The silver objects she had fashioned for the Great Synagogue of Cairo refused to leave Judith's mind. In her imagination, she continued turning them over and upside down, running her fingertips across their surfaces. (ch. 2)
Set in 15th Century Spain during the time of the Spanish Inquisition.

One of those books I'd buy just for the cover alone! But it does sound like an interesting read, too. Love the teaser!

Here’s mine.
