Mario X. Martinez is a storyteller who leads us through the labyrinth of young love, mystery, discovery, and murder. Perfect for a good story. In Abran and Isabella's Hidden Faith we go into a world of imagination of how hidden Jews might have lived in the early territorial period of New Mexico. Family memories of a Jewish past and the opposition of the Church are elements that are true enough from that past, and from those elements Martinez weaves this story of love, conflict, and intrigue. "Abran and Isabella's Hidden Faith is a book about being in love; in love with people, in love with family, in love with a culture, in love with a religion, and in love with a place, New Mexico. But there are dark clouds over that stark and barren landscape. Secret lives and secret practices. Mario Martinez asks the question: were there secret Jews in Spanish Catholic New Mexico in centuries past?" -Rob Martinez, assistant state historian of New Mexico "Mario Martinez joins his work to others brave enough to awaken a sleeping centuries old secret, that is both timeless and thought provoking. Abran and Isabella, young lovers, must decide to conform to social expectations and live a lie or claim a destiny shaped by Abran's heredity that would alter their lives forever. What revelations lie hidden in your attic?" -Mary Stewart, Literacy Coach and Teacher, Poudre School District, Fort Collins, Colorado
