This book, The Salt Covenants, by Sylvia Bambola had me feeling so many different emotions. It begins in Spain in 1493. Isabel was a girl who wanted to express her feelings and ideas in a time and place where this was not favorable. One of the things that she wished she could share was her conversion to Christianity. However due to many circumstances, including the Inquisition, she was married to her late-sisters betrothed and then had to sail to the New World on Christopher Columbus's second voyage.
The images and issues are beautiful and terrifying and Bambola was able to use words to express these to the reader so I felt like I was right there with Isabel.
This is a remarkable book by a talented author. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read it.
I was given this book by the author, and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
