Summary:Herron, a Jewish-American of African descent, tells the unique story of her family's history.

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.
