No Jewish books, no medical books, no magic books. I saw the way the soldiers treated this man. As if he were a bird caught in a snare made of his own bones. Now my mother saw me with Catalina in the Plaza. She looked shocked to see us in the middle of the rioting, in a place we shouldn’t be. My mother had a basket of wool with her; she had been to the dye vats near the river, and her arms were tinted from her work. My mother was known for the yarn she sold.

When the heat of the day was over, I went to Catalina’s house at the time of our lesson and knocked on the door. I knew Andres was there and that he’d be waiting for a good excuse to join us-he’d bring us some fruit perhaps, or cold water; all the while he’d be trying to send me a message in the way he looked at me, and I would try not to let anyone see when I sent him a message back. Usually I would be happy about such plans, but when Catalina opened the door I told her I had to miss our needlepoint lesson.
Incantation not only reinforces my admiration of Alice Hoffman's talent, but also fuels my interest in this sad and tragic subject.

Stones were thrown; windows were smashed; the gates of the juderia were painted red, the color of the devil’s work the Jews stealing from them, although what had been stolen was never disclosed. Because some Jews were moneylenders, they were blamed for the town’s recent bad fortune. In truth, everyone knew Jews were only permitted to lend money because the church wouldn’t allow one Christian to lend another money. How much money could there be in such dealings? The Jews weren’t rich.
