Ani Tuzman is novelist, an award-winning poet, and a writing mentor.

Ani grew up on a back-road chicken farm, the daughter of Holocaust survivors. At the age of eight, she began writing to an invisible companion, filling page after page with her questions about a world darkened by the shadow of the Holocaust. But there was also the ecstasy of rain, the dance of the willow, the gleaming stars… Writing about it all—in the silent, unconditional embrace of nature—became Ani’s path to the light.

Ani Tuzman is a novelist, an award-winning poet, and a writing mentor.

Ani grew up on a back-road chicken farm, the daughter of Holocaust survivors. At the age of eight, she began writing to an invisible companion, filling page after page with her questions about a world darkened by the shadow of the Holocaust. But there was also the ecstasy of rain, the dance of the willow in the wind, the stars illumining the night sky. Writing about it all—in the silent, unconditional embrace of nature—became Ani’s path to the light.

Ani’s deep appreciation for the gifts of writing, coupled with her desire to nurture the spirits and creativity of children, led her to found the Dance of the Letters, where for over 30 years she has provided welcoming and joyous spaces for people of all ages to find and free the voices of their hearts through writing.

Being awakened to the practice of meditation proved the perfect complement to writing, revealing a direct path to the inner wellsprings of love and creativity.

Along the way, Tuzman became captivated by legends of an eighteenth-century Eastern European mystic rabbi known as the Baal Shem Tov. A Kabbalist, he taught that divine sparks are hidden everywhere and it is one’s sacred duty to find and free the energy in these sparks whose essence is love. When Ani turned fifty, she experienced an inner call to write about this spiritual master. Her recent literary, historical novel The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, is the response to that call.

The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov, a work of transformative fiction, is a testament to the inextinguishable fire of love. Although people and their institutions may be devastated, as was the case with Eastern European Jewry and with other cultures throughout history, the human capacity to love and to heal cannot be defeated.

Ani lives in New England, where in addition to working on her next novel, she savors long walks in the changing seasons, meditation, and inspiring others to find and free their voices. Learn more about and connect with Ani at www.anituzman.com.

The Tremble of Love: A Novel of the Baal Shem Tov

A novel inspired by the legendary spiritual master, Rabbi Yisroel ben Eliezar, known as the Baal Shem Tov, the Good Master of the Name, who beckoned forth love from the hearts of rag pickers, ruby merchants, midwives, and murderers.

Poor orphan. Simpleton. Harder to tame than the wind.

He hears what they call him.

But he listens to the presence his father promised would never leave him.

Yisroel finds his way to those who nurture his healing gifts and rare compassion—until he embraces a destiny he cannot yet fathom nor deny any longer.

Honoring women, children, and the poor as his teachers. Celebrating life’s simplest deeds as worship. Praying with joyous abandon. Loving without condition. Yisroel’s “irreverent” practices threaten the established authorities, among them an embittered rabbinic leader with a mission of his own: to destroy the irrepressible master known as the Baal Shem Tov and his growing community of followers.

Set in the richly textured Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of the 1700s, this exquisite reimagining of one of history’s most revered and revolutionary mystics transports readers back in time to experience the true meaning of power and the timeless grace of love.
