The Mystics of Mile End by Sigal Samuel is a book about Judaism, mysticism and how the two get affected by loss and grief. This is not a quick read, but a book which needs to be taken in and contemplated.

The characters in this book are rich and complex. Not only the three main characters of which some of the story is told through their eyes, but also the secondary characters. All have an interesting history, different viewpoint and perspective and each individual is a world of their own.

This is a very rich story, I had to do some mental gymnastics to get my head wrapped around the mysticism concepts (which I was familiar with to begin with, but cannot claim to understand), but that is not a complaint. This is a meaningful story with great narrative, and, like the characters in the book, I’m sure we’ll all see something different in it.

The book is divided into four parts, the first three are told through the eyes of the main characters Lev, his father David, and sister/daughter Samara. The fourth part is told through the eyes of the surrounding characters in Mile End.
