Editorial Reviews

Review



"Cressler brilliantly weaves together fact and fiction, passion and intrigue, the throws of love, and the violence of war. With great attention to detail, he artfully unfolds the drama of a young and forbidden love, exquisitely keeping us rapt in the story, wondering in each moment, what will happen next?"
--Rabbi Rachael M. Bregman, Temple Beth Tefilloh


"Another tour de force! Cressler submerges us in a luxurious narrative evoking the loves, lives, intrigue, and history of 10th century Córdoba, a time of religious and political amity among Muslims, Jews, and Christians. We rejoice in the many triumphs of al-Andalus, yet despair at lessons not yet learned about how human beings may live and love together. Shadows in the Shining City is a lovely, moving, and inspiring story of how it might have been. We believe!" 
--Professor Susan Abraham, Loyola Marymount University
