The Ruach Ami series of historical novels focuses on the plight of the Jewish people of Europe during the middle 17th century. Although the central characters mostly hail from Poland, the series detours to many other European countries including Turkey, Spain, Austria and the Germanic states. Leaving behind the Pulichever family almost entirely, this book follows the fictional Marrano Don Pedro Manuel Luis Dominguez de Monteverde y Saluria (the latter estate being fictional) through his arrest and execution by the Spanish Inquisition.

In authoring his Ruach Ami series, he writes under the pen name Avner Gold. This book follows the Domínguez family after the martyrdom of Don Pedro in The Marrano Prince. Reinman is the author of the sefer Shufra Dishtara, an analytical study of the philosophy of Talmudic contractual law, which is utilized as a text in yeshiva studies. He also co-authored the book One People, Two Worlds: A Reform rabbi and an Orthodox rabbi explore the issues that divide them with Reform Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch.

This book is an incredible way to learn a lot of history at the same time as you read an entertaining page turner. The story is set in late 17th Century Spain, the height of the Inquisition. A highborn secret Jew must balance his devotion to his religion which he knows very little about at the begining of the story against his pride in and sense of duty toward, his country and the Spanish royalty, his kinsmen.
This book, like most of the others in the Ruach Ami series, is filled with historical information, including an insider's view of the political factors that led to Spain's gut-wrenching and hopeless war against King Louis' powerful French legions. Unlike the others in the series however, this is made more realistic with a flawed protagonist. Gold's other books, while historically educational and entertaining, lack realism in that one side always represents 100% good, and the other is 100% evil. In this book, only chief antagonist, the evil confessor to the king, is solely bad. All of the other characters have positive and negative traits.
This book takes you on a ride with a proud and talented, and yet confused Spanish duke, through naval battles on the seas, bull fights in Pamplona, the haughty royal halls and portrays the intrigues and back stabbing that was so common to the monarch governments of yesteryear. It even visits the forbidding interrogation rooms and torture chambers of the inquisition.
In every way I can think of, this is an excellent book!
