An elderly black grandmother passes on the story of the family s Jewish origins to her young granddaughter, Carol Olivia. As family members flee the Spanish Inquisition, are kidnapped by pirates and eventually sail to America, one daughter in each generation is given the name Olivia, from the Hebrew Shulamit meaning peace, to honor the Jewish part of their ancestry. Critically-acclaimed author Carolivia Herron (Nappy Hair) shares this engaging, multicultural tale is based on her own family's heritage.

"This will be useful for classroom studies and discussions with a rarely told perspective on families and coming to America."
--Kirkus Reviews
"Tugeau's vibrant paintings highlight the various moods of the story, from the fear of the Inquisition to the warmth of a family dinner, from the darkness of the pirate ship to the vitality of the Geechee community. This beautifully illustrated offering skillfully shows the diversity of the American Jewish community."
--School Library Journal
