Out of Granada


Out of Granada

by Ben Fine

The year is 1560, the Inquisition in Madrid has turned on the conversos in Al-Andalus, and the Benzions must flee to their holdings in Palermo.

Don Miguel Benzion, a former Captain in the employ of the Duke of Sienna, and the son of a wealthy converso family in Granada, Spain must sell the family business before he is trapped by the inquisition and is forced to flee to Cuba.

On the voyage to Cuba, Don Miguel meets the lovely and vivacious Senorita Imelda, who tames this famous swordsman and becomes the love of his life. Once in Cuba, they are forced once again to flee, this time to Mexico.  In the Gulf of Mexico, they are captured by pirates, led by the madman Jerusalem, who’s ultimate goal is to recapture Palestine.

To save his friends, his family, and his love, Miguel throws his lot in with the pirates. While the pirates end up defeated by the Spanish on the southern coast of Sicily, Don Miguel manages to escape.

Can Don Miguel make it to Palermo to reunite with his family? Will the local mafiosi be sympathetic to his plight or will they be yet another obstacle? Will Miguel ever find his Imelda, or will he be too late?

    Enjoyed the book.

    Out of Granada, new author Ben Fine’s leap into historical fiction is a rollicking good ride into a venue that few of us have known. Fine masterfully weaves the historical events of 16th century Spain and the expulsion of the Moors from their centuries long dominance in Spain with the fictional Jewish Benzoin family and their heroic son Miguel who are also being evicted by the newly dominant Spanish Inquisition.

    To save his family and its fortune, Miguel embarks on an incredible journey that takes him on a voyage to the Caribbean, where he is captured by a band of madcap pirates led by an off the charts captain whose insanity is only equaled by Miguel’s bravery and fortitude. A return to the Old World leads to more derring-do and ultimately to a tear jerking finale.

    This is an story of adventure, incredible struggle, and, yes, even a love story into the bargain wrapped in a terrific history lesson that will leave you marveling at Fine’s deft intermingling of all the composite parts.

    Bravo to Ben Fine for an exciting beginning to his career as a novelist.
