Well written, interesting, uncovering and coming to terms with Spanish Jewish ancestors' enforced conversion to a Catholicism that would continue to treat them as unworthy for hundreds of years. There's no question that they were conversos, no question that the conversos were in an in-between status, no question that the author was raised Catholic. Rather, the burning question for the author seems to have been whether and in what way and to what extent they were still Jewish.
