Reeling from a broken engagement, adopted nineteen-year-old Menina Walker flees to Spain to bury her misery by writing her overdue college thesis--and soon finds herself on an unexpected journey into the past. The subject of her study is Tristan Mendoza, an obscure sixteenth-century artist whose signature includes a tiny swallow--the same swallow depicted on a medal that is Menina's only link to her birth family.
Hoping her research will reveal the swallow's significance and clue her in to her origins, Menina discovers the ancient chronicle of a Spanish convent, containing the stories of five orphaned girls hidden from the Spanish Inquisition before they escaped to the New World. Learning about the girls' adventures, the nuns who sheltered them, and Mendoza, Menina wonders if accident or destiny led her to Spain--and the discovery of a lifetime.
From bestselling author Helen Bryan comes The Sisterhood, an epic adventure filled with history, passion, and intrigue.
