L’autrice in questo romanzo affronta un argomento molto delicato, ma lo fa con garbo, disincanto e arguzia. Senza essere polemica, racconta in uno stile solo all’apparenza leggero e scanzonato due storie d’amore parallele che un Prete e una Donna, protagonisti volutamente anonimi, vivono in epoche various. Attraverso varie vicissitudini, talora drammatiche, sia in line with los angeles vita stessa dei personaggi sia in line with i problemi di fede e di coscienza con cui si sentono confrontati, il loro amore sfocia in due finali differenti e significativi. Ambedue le conclusioni tuttavia vogliono evidenziare come oggi sia ancora possibile credere, avere fede in un Dio d’amore e di misericordia, nonostante una Chiesa non sempre infallibile in quanto, come ogni umana istituzione, ha nell’uomo i suoi limiti.

Inquisición consumieron el cuerpo vivo de una mujer de l. a. que poco se sabe: Margarita Porete, una beguina de l. a. región de Hainaut que había escrito un libro, El espejo de las almas simples, y que fue los angeles causa de su condena. A pesar de ello, y tras su muerte, este libro tuvo tan enorme difusión que, en los últimos siglos de l. a. Edad Media, traspasó fronteras geográficas y lingüísticas como pocos textos de su época, traduciéndose del francés (o del possible unique picardo) al latín, al inglés y al italiano. Escrito con forma de un diálogo entre personificaciones alegóricas, y en el marco de las formas de expresión de l. a. literatura cortés, El espejo de las almas simples es una obra de teología que enraíza en las corrientes de l. a. llamada «mística femenina» del siglo XIII y cuyos contenidos se vinculan estrechamente al pensamiento del maestro Eckhart, quien casi con seguridad lo conoció y leyó. El libro, caído tras el siglo XVI en el olvido, fue redescubierto, y con él su autora, en pleno siglo XX. Desde entonces se reconoce en esta obra uno de los grandes hitos de los angeles literatura mística occidental.
