Nicole Dweckabout this book: When a forbidden loves leads to a father's unthinkable act, it is up to the descendants of two illustrious families to right the wrongs of their ancestors centuries later in modern day New York.
An epic journey five years in the making, The Debt of Tamar will push you, provoke you, and challenge every idea you've ever held about love, loyalty, family , and redemption. This multi-generation family saga was researched and written in countries spanning the globe, and was inspired by the real-life plight of Dona Gracia and Josef Nasi.
As a descendant of Sephardic (Spanish) refugees who escaped to the Ottoman Empire, Nicole Dweck has always been interested in Sephardic history and the plight of refugees during the Spanish Inquisition.
This is the story not just of survivors, but of sinners, saviors, and ultimately, those of us who live to inherit the legacy of our forefathers.
