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.

An excellent historical novel around the life of a half Muslim and half Christian boy who struggles through his life with his identity and the struggle to remain true to his religion in a country that persecutes them. A bit drawn out at times but still a great read to relax into!
