Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree (Islam Quintet)
In 1492, in the aftermath of the fall of Granada, the Banu Hudayl family is in jeopardy. For hundreds of years they and their ancestors have lived in a small village near Córdoba, the capital of Muslim Spain. But with the fall of Islamic rule, rumours begin to circulate of punishments and forced conversions meted out by conquering and intolerant Christians. Besieged, Muslim and Jew alike wait in anguish for the approaching catastrophe.
Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree brings a neglected history to life in the saga of a daily caught within an uncannily familiar clash of ideologies.
