Green Eyes is the second book by author Flora Ben-Amram, who was born in Jerusalem and grew up immersed in the Sephardic culture that graces the pages of the story. Her first book, Nona Flor, moved scores of readers who were able to visualize the course of the traditions that fueled their families for generations, following their expulsion from Spain.
