The Salt Covenants by Sylvia Bambola

This was a wonderful book that made me laugh and cry. I had not known much about the “converso”. I am Catholic and it can be hard to read about how hard and cruel people were during the times of the inquisition. This is a story of a young girl named Isabel who ends up marrying a man she does not love and sailing on the second voyage that Columbus took to the new world. She is one of the only females that is there and that is hard. Here she has to survive and watch as the natives are treated horribly.. There are many secrets that are revealed and many good times and bad times that she must go through. I loved the characters and the story. I received a copy of this through Bookcrash.com for a fair and honest opinion. I hope to read many more by Sylvia Bambola.  Biography
Born in Romania in 1945, Sylvia Bambola lived her early years in Germany. At seven she relocated with her adopted family and saw the Statue of Liberty and America for the first time. But the memory of those years in Germany inspired her to write Refiner’s Fire, which won a Silver Angel Award, and was a Christy Finalist. Her frequent moves as an “army brat” gave her an opportunity to see America and fall in love with her new country. Bambola has authored six novels, has two grown children, teaches women’s Bible studies, loves gardening and is learning the guitar.
