Storyboard Text

  • Initial Event
  • Mama spoke, "What your papa is trying to tell you is that you are a grown woman now, and it is time that you become betrothed" (Wiseman 17).
  • Isabel proclaimed, "You promised to wait until I was fifteen! You said that you would pick a boy I liked" (Wiseman 17).
  • Propels the Actions by...
  • Yonah replied, "It's a kiddush cup. We use it to hold the wine we drink to welcome the Sabbath" (Wiseman 108).
  • Outcome
  • Isabel protested, "I can't convince Mama that I must speak to the Great Inquisitor to free you" (Wiseman 153).
  • Don Enrique questioned, "Have you lost your minds to come here?" (Wiseman 153)
  • "Don't you know what could happen to you?" (Wiseman 153).
  • As Isabel is becoming of age, her parents, Dona Catarina and Don Enrique, betrothe her to a young man she despairs. There is a secret underlying this betrothal, however, which offsets everything in the future for the family.
  • Initial Event
  • Papa proclaimed, "Torquemada's grandmother wrote down in this letter the recipes for the dishes that their mother used to cook for the Jewish holiday of Passover" (Wiseman 65).
  • As Isabel does not like the partner she was betrothed to, she is comfortable being near Yonah, a Jewish boy. She believes that he is the one she is to be with. Yonah gives her a Jewish cup for her birthday. If Isabel had liked Luis (husband to be), she would have never found Yonah, who would never have given her the cup that would help her later on. Yonah's father also helps Isabel's father later on when he is in trouble.
  • Propels the Action by...
  • Isabel hopelessly said, "I'll talk to Luis. Soon, I will be his wife. He'll ask his father to help us. The Inquisition will listen to him. Isn't that why you and Papa want me to marry Luis" (Wiseman 141)
  • Mama agreed, "I've long suspected that he may have informed on your father to the Inquisition" (Wiseman 141).
  • Isabel and her mother suspect that Luis knew about their past and told the Inquisition about their father. He is now locked up by the Inquisition and Isabel must find a way to help her father get out. Since Yonah's father is willing to help her, they find a plan to get her father out of the jail. If it hadn't been for Yonah's father, Isabel would have been tricked by the Inquisitor and never get her father back.
  • Outcome
  • Isabel handed over, "The cup is for you. It's made of silver. It's worth of a lot of money" (Wiseman 217).
  • The bandit shouted, "Give me your gold!" (Wiseman 217)
  • Since Torquemada's grandmother was of Jewish faith, he is considered a New Christian. New Christians are thought of as less by people like him. They can now use this letter in the case of an emergency - if their secret is uncovered that they also have a Jewish background. This letter is their safe net against the Inquisitor.
  • Isabel now understands that she was only betrothed to Luis because Isabel's family were past Jews. In the town they live in, Jews are not treated the same. They needed to have Luis marry Isabel because Luis' family were Old Christians. Unfortunately, Luis and his family know about Isabel's past and do everything to rid of them.
  • Since Isabel and Mama already suspected Luis of finding out their secret of having a Jewish background, they believe that since he knows, he told the Inquisitor . He now comes to take the family, but they have already fled. They understand that they have to leave, and with Yonah and his father's help, they are able to do so. It seems that having met Yonah has also helped her in situations of need.
