Young Flory’s ancestors left Spain generations ago when it became unsafe for Jews, taking with them two important possessions: the key to their house in Spain, in hopes that one day they could return, and the music of their Sephardic heritage. When Flory grows up, she finds she must leave her home, too -- but the music of her ancestry follows her wherever she goes.

"I love stories based in historical fiction. I hope to receive this book one day and read it with our kiddos. This is one of their favorite Chanukah songs."
"We absolutely loved this book. My daughter was able to share this story with her school friends who didn’t know about Flory. The illustration in this book brought me to tears at some points, it was so beautifully poignant. Another winner from PJ. "
