Editorial Reviews


"A deeply moving and enlightening novel on the co-existence of religions." 
─Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
"...Cressler has woven an imaginative and intricately persuasive story...[a] vivid and gorgeous world of romance, intrigue, murder and negotiations between multiple religions in medieval Spain...[a] story of love between human beings, for God, and for the creation so graciously bestowed on us. A thoroughly gripping and engaging first novel."
─Professor Susan Abraham, Harvard Divinity School 
"...Seamlessly weaves history, religion, passion, loyalty and romance into a compelling, beautifully-written narrative which brings [the reader] into the richness, majesty and complexities of this different, yet alluring world..." 
─Rabbi Rachael M. Bregman, Temple Beth Tefiloh and Rabbis Without Borders 
"... More than ever, we need stories like Cressler tells, confirming the transformative power of relationships. Cressler illuminates the beauty and meaning found in Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, reviving an important shared history..."
─Eboo Patel, Founder and President, Interfaith Youth Core
