A mystical journey

"The uniqueness of Angelina Muñiz Huberman's historical novel lies in its combination of poetic prose, apparent simplicity, and an improbable happy ending. Within the structure of the archetypal journey of the hero, a Jewish teenager in late sixteenth-century Spain manages to avoid the inquisition by joining a perilous Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He is assisted by a magical muleteer who appears and dissapears periodically in different guises until the protagonist and his beloved Miriam are safely settled in the nothern town of Safed."
