Part Number:MY ESCAPE

A historical novel of intrigue, persecution and romance set in the tenebrous days of the Spanish Inquisition.

In the difficult days of the Protestant Reformation, Don Fernando de la Mina, a noble landowner in Simancas, Valladolid, is arrested by the Holy Office of the Inquisition and sentenced to be burned at the stake for his “heresy.” Due to his reformed convictions, which were not allowed in those days of intolerant religious fanaticism, he finds himself in a series of providential circumstances. These free him from the flames, but not from an odyssey of epic proportions, until his subsequent arrival to the Protestant kingdom of Lower Navarre in France.

My Escape not only relates the sinister treatment of all suspects of Lutheran heresy in Spain – culpable or not – but also captivates the reader by its intriguing history of suspense, hope, and love. The account is told with fascinating fervor and intensity, which should without a doubt, cause everyone to remember the old adage: “Those who refuse to learn from the failures of history are destined to repeat them.”  

This new edition offered to the public, commemorates the 450th anniversary (in 2009) of the two Autos de Fé of the Spanish Inquisition held in Valladolid, on May 21st and October 8th, 1559.
