He is the son of a prominent New York family, his future and his wife-to-be secure and glittering. She is the daughter of a Jewish tailor, her future full of the hopes and dreams of any nice Jewish girl living in the teeming Lower East Side of the late 1800's. But ever since that day when the dashing Pierce Blackwell appeared in her father's shop, Darlene Lewy has tried-and failed-to put him out of her mind and heart. And yet she must, for her sake and his. She could never accept his Jesus as the Messiah, and he would most likely be disowned should they ever marry. Yet Darlene's world as she knows it is about to go up in flames... and the fire won't be extinguished until the love that transcends all barriers-God's love-is fully realized.
