"BLIND VISION" -- A riveting and powerful new historic novel
Hannover House is proud to announce the Jan. 29, 2013 release of "BLIND VISION" from best-selling author Vivian Jeanette Kaplan ("Ten Green Bottles" / Penguin-Putnam Publishers). This highly anticipated book is a beautifully written and riveting literary historical novel based on one of the most horrific times of the late 15th Century. Thousands of new Christians in Spain, forced to convert from Judaism to Christianity, were accused of continuing the Jewish faith, resulting in their torture and brutalized execution. These events were led by the Vatican appointed Grand Inquisitor, Tomas de Torquemada as well as King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. These real life events, and the subsequent emigration out of Spain by disenfranchised Jews, was featured today on National Public Radio's All Things Considered.
