This is the story of Abby, a young woman who goes on a pilgrimage to Israel where she takes part in an archeological dig. As she digs up certain artifacts she learns about what others have gone through in Israel long ago and also in more recent times. This is a great story of love and friendship, hatred and war, of rising up and overcoming heartbreak and tragedy. Lynn Austin never disappoints - this is another great book!
I LOVE Lynn Austin....one of my favorite authors! If you have traveled to Israel, you will get so excited when you read this book, because you have BEEN THERE! If you have not, you will enjoy this trip! The story keeps you wondering til the very last page. It will give you insight into the present Israel!
Whatva wonderful story. i love Lynn Austin and once again she has done a great job. This book felt like a spiritual journey and a history course. The story is poignant and beautiful. i imagine a lot of research had to go into the writing ofbthis book. Only a very goodvwritervcould pull this off.
What an absolutely beautiful story. This book touched me in a way I cannot begin to describe. At the end of the book I felt that I had been on a spiritual journey. I was in tears constantly throughout the book. The message of salvation was so clear in the pages as the reminder that salvation is for everyone jews and gentiles alike. What especially is good is the insight we get into the conflict in the middle east because often times the pictures we get from the media does tanish our preception of these people. When I closed the book for the last time I actually said "God Bless you! Lynn Austin." I think this a book that as many people as possible should read. I am only sorry that I am not rich otherwise I would purchase mutiple copies and just walk around and hand them out to people. This is definitly a must read book. Indeed may God Bless Lynn Austin.
