9781937273682: The Last Fernandez

After being inexplicably removed from her family in a small fishing town in Argentina, six year-old Angelina is sent to a Catholic convent, where she spends her next twelve years. During her lonely days at the convent, she finds solace in the company of a mysterious presence, by the name of Sara Fernandez, which gradually reels her into the life of a Marrano family living at the end of the 15th century in Cordoba, Spain. As Angelina embeds herself in the life of the Fernandez family, she understands that Sara is not a product of her imagination, rather the link to her secret past and her only hope for survival. Set amid the notorious Spanish Inquisition and the murderous Dirty War in Argentina of the late 1970s, two women, more than four centuries apart, transcend the barriers of time and fight political and religious persecution to ensure the survival of their lineage.

Review:

"The book is skillfully written to capture the story of two women and their connection over four centuries in time. The author does an excellent job of weaving in Jewish persecution during the Spanish Inquisition and also brings in the Political Dirty War of Argentina during the 1970s.
The author's gift for weaving characters, plot, and scenes effectively is what makes this book out of the ordinary. If you are looking for a historical fiction book that includes lots of suspense and page turners, then this is definitely one to read this year." -The Latino Author

"Author Gluschankoff has done her share of research to create two parallel...For anyone who loves history and a great love story, a compelling read." -   Halapid- The Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies 

The Last Fernandez is full of compelling characters set in times of historical conflict. From the first page I was drawn into a magical story which blended the past and present together into a love story that spans five centuries. - Lady Brenda Mckoy- Author of  The Wings Of Isis.
