The Hand of FatimaBook - 2011
Snared between two cultures and two loves, one man is forced to choose.1564, the Kingdom of Granada. After years of Christian oppression, the Moors take arms against their masters and daub the white houses of Sierra Nevada with the blood of their victims. Caught in the conflict is young Hernando, the son of an Arab woman who was raped by a Christian priest. Despised by the townsfolk and by his own stepfather for his 'tainted' heritage, he is banished to live in the stables and becomes an expert muleteer.
