Deep in every family history is a mystery of who we really are.

"The Forgetting River" is an unexpected and moving story of an American journalist who unravels her Catholic family's long-buried Sephardic Jewish ancestry in Spain.

As Doreen Carvajal searches for proof that her family was forced through the Inquisition to convert to Christianity 600 years ago, she moves into a mystical white pueblo on Spain's southern frontier to crack the secret messages left by hidden Jews – an ancient cry from the past.

She comes to understand that her family's history flows like a river through time – and that while the truth might be submerged, it is NEVER truly lost.
