A Selection of the Jewish Book Club

“The best novel I have encountered using Sephardic history as the backdrop … recreates the tragedy and drama of Jewish and converso life in 15th century Spain … historical personalities take on a life of their own that conforms to the fragments of personal data we possess about them”
– Historian Jane Gerber

“The Heretic is deeply absorbing – but also helps Jews and Christians better understand their complex and often painful relationship.”
– Elie Wiesel

“The historical novel that is both true to the past and relevant to the present is rare indeed.”* Faye Kellerman: “a sweeping tale of love, honor, justice, religion and morality, meticulously researched and wonderfully exciting”
– Alan Dershowitz

“A compelling and gripping depiction of the hatred wreaked by religious fanaticism in 15th century Spain. The lives, loves and tragedies of the characters, fictional and historical, come alive, inviting the reader to see, feel and share their emotions.”
– Shoshana Cardin (JTA)

“As much as The Heretic is a story of horror and destruction, it contains, as all Jewish stories must, the kernel of perpetual hope and rebirth.”
– Hadassah Magazine

“A stirring novel with much to say about family, faith and Jewish identity.”
– New York Jewish Week

“History and fictional characters are closely woven together … an exciting, interesting and very readable epic.”
– The Jerusalem Post

“This book should come with a warning label: don’t start reading it unless you’re prepared to put everything else aside until you finish … powerful, riveting, and inspiring. It should be a must read Catholics and Jews.”
– David A. Harris (CEO of The American Jewish Committee)
