Blood Secret

Blood Secret Blood Secret by Kathryn Lasky

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was somewhat interesting, from an adult standpoint, but I don't think many young people will get in to the story. It is a story of the Inquisition, beginning in Spain, and actually coming to the new world. But, it is also a time-travel story, because the main character, a young girl named Jerry, is able to go back in time to witness her family's persecution.
I learned something new, though, that Jewish people from Spain were early settlers in the southwest. I never knew that.
Truthfully, I think this storyline is too complicated for many young people to follow.

I love historical fiction, but this book is not on my fave list.
