Ildefonso Falcones

A young man caught between two religions and two loves fights for freedom and respect in 16th century Spain. The last Muslim kingdom of Granada has fallen, leaving its people oppressed and forced to abandon their religion. Hernando, son of a Muslim woman and a priest, fights for his place in a world that rejects him. Amidst the struggle, Hernando discovers love with the valiant Fátima. When the rebellion fails, Hernando is exiled to Cordoba, where he hopes to start anew in the fight for tolerance and harmony. This gripping novel from the author of "La Catedral del mar" weaves historical accuracy with a moving tale of love, hate, and adventure.
