Book: The Last Jew
Author: Noah Gordon
Determined to honor the memory of his family, young Yonah Toledano fights to remain a Jew during the turmoil of the Spanish Inquisition.
On a donkey named Moise, Yonah journeys in hiding through the vastness of Spain and into the arms of a singular and strong Marrano woman. He trains to fight like a Christina Knight and achieves a life with the outer persona of a respected Old Christian physician and the inner life of a secret Jew.
The Last Jew is a glimpse of the past, an authentic tale of high adventure, and a tender and unforgettable love story.
