Researching and writing these books has filled me with ideas and activities for you to share with young people. Use these free lessons and resources to explore identity, culture, and a Jewish hero, right now.
When the books are published, I will provide additional material tied directly to the books.
Ester, Called Maria
Thirteen year old Ester Cordoba lives a double life. Outside her home, she’s Maria a New Christian living in old Lisbon. Away from prying eyes and curious ears, she whispers ancient Hebrew prayers. But in 1536, growing danger leads her to question all she thought she knew about her two identities and to do the unimaginable to try to save her family.
