Her passionate writing captures the past and present-day Crypto-Jewish struggle with anguish, pride, and secrecy. In the end, Sandoval shares the vulnerability as well as courage of the present, and the optimism that the cabalistic light will shine brighter in the future. Sandra K. Toro is an award-winning, best-selling author who teaches creative writing at the University of New Mexico, and previously she worked in Washington D.
Toro is an active speaker on writing and the representation of writers. Through her exquisite prose, Sandra K. She pays homage to the centrality of family and faith in the lives of early modern crypto-Jews, projected onto a backdrop of Spanish interaction with Native American beliefs and peoples. Secrets behind Adobe Walls rekindles our memory of that dramatic era. Roger L. Martinez, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
Behind Adobe Walls - Historic Architectural & Interiors Walking + Wine Tour in Santa Fe, New Mexico
Sandra Toro brings to life the turbulent history and clash of cultures, religion and politics of colonial New Mexico. Adobe Walls was so wonderful that our only complaint was that our stay was too short.
Not only were Kimberly and Don amazing people, their children were also charming and just fun to be around. The rooms are beautiful, the service without peer, and the local surroundings breathtaking. We met wonderful people staying there and have maintained contact with some of them as well as the owners. Lastly, it was just my wife and I but we have children and wouldn't mind bringing them to such a wonderful place.
Kimberly and Don, the owners, were very welcoming. Don was particularly gracious in showing my wife and me around the premises, explaining the building and decorating process and sharing his expertise in remodeling. Such a nice guy! Kimberly was great about accommodating our late wake-up time and cooking breakfast for us. Breakfast was delicious, although I would have liked some meat options and fresh juice would have been a plus.
Secrets Behind Adobe Walls by Sandra Toro
Great location. Thanks to both of them for a wonderful stay!! Over Christmas last year a friend of mine told me about small village in Mexici, Ajijic.
I had been looking for a place to live South of the border, in fact, my mind was made up to relocate to Buenos Aires. I began looking at Ajijic and decided to visit. I had read about Adobe Walls and decided to call for a reservation.
Don, the husband of the husband and wife team, an American, answered the phone and within a few minutes I had a reservation, weather forecast and directions. I arrived a few days later and was welcomed to Adobe Walls by Kimberly, the wife. I felt like I was at home. There is not much I can say about my stay, the room was great, a nice bathroom, a lot of hot water and pressure for my shower.
The breakfast could not have been better. I eat gluten free and there was no problem accommodating my requests. The location of Adobe Walls is perfict, about 5 minute walk from just about everything in Ajijic. There is even a free phone for all calls,local and even to North America. This place is no acception.
The house is very much like a hacienda with a courtyard in the center and the home all surrounding the courtyard. Our room was very comfortable and has a very comfortable bed, which is really important to us. The decor of the place is very "old world mexico" in a highly fashionable sense.
