It is 1596 and in Mexico the Inquisition is at its most efficient. A young man trembles in his cell as he prays for salvation, torn between the Christianity he was schooled in and his ancestral faith. What heresies will the Holy Office uncover? Can he protect his mother and sisters? He is Luis de Carvajal, whose spirit and ingenuity are tested again and again in his quest for true faith.

I am a Carvajal, so I found this one really interesting. Reading this book about how people thought at the time was like a window into another world. Sometimes it was like watching a car accident in slow motion.
