9781560025306: Voice of the Vanquished: The Story of the Slave Marina and Hernan Cortes

They triumphed over youthful hardships -- hers in Aztec-ruled Mexico and his in rural Spain -- to become a team that changed two continents forever. Without his loyal slave and interpreter Marina, the conquistador Hernan Cortes could not have toppled the empire of Moctezuma II. Without Cortes, Marina would have been crushed by the treachery of her ruthless stepfather. Together, they rebuilt a devastated empire, shaped its Christian destiny, and created their son from a love deeper than a master and a slave are ever supposed to know.

Review:

Jim Cox of Midwest Book Review said in his "Reviewer's Bookwatch" (December 1997): "VOICE OF THE VANQUISHED is a saga of Homeric proportions as its central character Marina survives, evolves and grows into one of the most memorable characters in recent literature. Author Helen Gordon has a lyrical and epic quality to her writing that is as impressive as it is engaging." -- Book Review
