Fine is a serious scholar of the persecution of Sephardic Jews, and the details in this book are impressive and edifying. A superb read about the sufferings of a crypto-Jewish matriarch in the 17th century.

Synopsis

A grandmother is in an Inquisition prison suspected of secretly practicing Judaism. Officials search and burn every soul not devoted to the Church suspect the whole family is involved in this heresy.
Hidden Ones is a story about a granddaughter on the verge of womanhood living in a city on the North American continent that has turned against them. The family embarks on a perilous adventure from another era not unlike the immigrant journeys of today.
Can they run without their precious abuela? This tale shines a bright light on the hidden Crespin family in their attempt to survive in 17th century Mexico when most of the Americas where ruled by Spain.
