Within theMoreDreaming of Safed is a spiritual odyssey to find life in the link between love and mysticism.

The uniqueness of Angelina Muniz-Hubermans historical novel lies in its combination of poetic prose, apparent simplicity, and a happy ending. Within the structure of the archetypal journey of the hero, a Jewish teenager in 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 disappears periodically in different guises until the protagonist and his beloved Miriam are safely settled in the northern town of Safed. Although the authors fascination with Jewish history and her poetic style mark the majority of her books of fiction and essays, I consider Dreaming of Safed to be her most important work and one that contributes significantly to her reputation as one of Mexicos and Latin Americas most important writers.
