Joan Logghe's series of poems works like a small novel to reveal the life of an Hispanic Catholic woman with Sephardic Jewish roots. The series draws on stories and lives of actual women, the author's own life in the Española, New Mexico Valley and is dedicated to the Goddess of Women alive in each woman. This bilingual edition is translated into Spanish by Claire Joysmith and Arturo Salinas. A lovely book, signed by the author, unread and in very good condition. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Among the Spanish people who settled New Mexico four centuries ago were Jews forced into exile during the Inquisition. This series of thirty poems reveals the life of one of these crypto Jews, a Hispanic woman with a Sephardic background. Drawing on the stories and lives of actual women as well as on the author's own life in the Española Valley, these poems, written in English and translated into Spanish, are presented bilingually in this powerful book.
