Acts of Hope
Martin Elsant, author
Having escaped the Portuguese Inquisition, a New Christian woman embarks on a journey to reclaim her Jewish heritage. She soon meets several others on their own unique quests: an English doctor trying to reestablish a Jewish homeland, a pirate and an innkeeper seeking revenge for the Inquisition’s crimes, a Muslim honor victim fighting for justice, and a Catholic seminary student risking his life to end all Inquisitions, everywhere. Their individual acts of hope intertwine to create a timeless story of faith, doubt, betrayal, and redemption.
