About This Book"What will she find in her family's hidden history?"
Jerry hasn't spoken a word in the six years since her mother disappeared. Sometimes she wants to talk, but she just . . . can't.
Sent to live with her great-great-aunt, Constanza, Jerry discovers an ancient trunk in the basement that holds the key to the mysteries of her family. Why does Constanza light candles every Friday night? Where did her strange superstitions come from? The answers lead Jerry on a bloodstained path into the shadows of stories -- stories about the Spanish Inquisition nearly five hundred years ago and stories of secrets locked deep in the bloodlines of Jerry's ancestors.
