The CRIMSON CROSS series is inspired by a mysterious silver and ruby cross, a precious relic of the Holy Land, originally given to Christopher Columbus before his epic voyage of discovery. In each volume it is passed on to a young hero or heroine who has proven to be worthy of it. As they play a crucial role in dramatic moments of America’s history, the characters face difficult choices and challenges—not unlike those confronting today’s youth. For most of his fifteen years, Pedro de Torreros has dreamed of going to sea. And in a twist of fate at the Spanish monastery where he has lived since he was orphaned, his dream comes true. Soon, Pedro finds himself aboard the Santa Maria under the command of Christopher Columbus and headed across unexplored oceans toward the fabled Spice Islands of the Indies. Facing danger and exhilaration with every wave, Pedro dares to discover his destiny.
