review Die Jüdin von Toledo

Bitterness and conflict of their times in a tragic alliance Rauel was the daughter of Yehuda a wealthy proud aristocrat who had come from Seville with his family to serve as Alfonso's Minister of Finance His mission was to replenish the country's depleted treasury but he saw in this assignment an opportunity to prevent war between the Christian North and the Moslem South and in the process to save his own people the Jews from being crushed between these two. Wow this was really amazing I think that it is a shame that so little people know such a great book This is really a picture of a book which I consider valuable because you get so many things in one story It is a historic book because it describes the situation during Spanish Reconuista and coexistence of three different cultures It is a love story with forbidden and tragic love and it is even a psychological novel because of great description of characters and personal development of them It is a book full of beautiful thoughts and with uite original story I am not sure if I can compare this to something but it is everything I was expecting from Dostoevsky and his Crime and punishment and what I did not get from that book I can recommend it to everybody
