Don’t let the cover put you off this hidden treasure!
I almost passed this book by, because of the really bad cover. I kept coming back to it though because the synopsis intrigued me, and I wondered if I was bypassing a real treasure of a story because of a home-made cover. And I was right! This is a FANTASTIC story, very well-done plot, likeable and relatable characters, and a strong sense of history, place and time. Don’t pass up this historical gem for your children, to give them a good look into the Mayan and Spaniard cultures and histories of the time of Philip and Elizabeth of Spain.
