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.
