Kidnapped from their parents during the Portuguese Inquisition,
Maria and Isobel Ben Lazar were sent to a remote Brazilian
monastery. In 1654, they escape and stow away on separate ships.
Maria lands in Amsterdam, searching for 12-year-old Isobel and
their parents. Befriended by the painter Rembrandt, Maria struggles
to overcome her disappointments with hope and determination. "A
gripping companion book to "Out of Many Waters." This novel
exemplifies the best of historical fiction, providing a real sense
of the times, a plausible plot, and authentic characters."-"Horn
Book" "Adventure and history are intertwined in this engrossing
story."-"School Library Journal" Sydney Taylor Honor Book ABA Pick
