The Prisoner of Thiago Paperback / softback
A touching tale of determination, female friendship and love against all odds.
Inspired by a true story, The Prisoner of Thiago is a gripping historical novel that lays bare the unimaginable suffering and fear endured by the Moriscos of Spain during the sixteenth century.
At the heart of the novel is Zaira, a spirited Morisco girl, who refuses to yield to her Catholic oppressors.
Separated from her family and imprisoned in the palace of a fanatical bishop, Zaira must summon all of her courage to endure the horrors and hardships to come.
The novel was inspired by a unique collection of Andalusian manuscript documents dating from 1490 to 1580, which chart the plight of a Morisco family as their property was expropriated, their rights curtailed and their lives torn apart during one of the worst pogroms the world has ever seen.
