Summary

A powerful story set against the backdrop of today's Israel.

Nothing in Abigail MacLeod's life as a wife, a mother, and a teacher has prepared her for what she will experience during her summer in Israel. At 42, her life is in chaos, even before she leaves home - her marriage is dissolving before her very eyes, and her faith is in shambles. This pilgrimage to Israel was supposed to be a new beginning for her. But by the end of the first day, she is forced to board an Israeli jetliner in spite of a bomb threat and watches helplessly as a kind, fatherly gentleman she befriended on the plane dies in her arms.  

This is a summer Abby will spend learning about archaeology, delving into the past. And it's a summer that will change her life in ways she never imagined.

A wonderful story

Current day Israeli Palestinian conflict explained beautifully in this story full of hope. A great flashback technique between AD60 and current times

Excellent read!

Intertwining historical events with human drama, sprinkled with intrigue and passion, makes this an amazing adventure. It was a very captivating story with great moral lessons around each twist and turn.

Beautifully woven story

Lynn Austin never disappoints in her story writing. This time she brings to life the life and times of multiple generations of the Jewish people. Their joys, sorrows, the wars, the ancient history and the not so ancient history. She also beautifully weaves the message of salvation into her story, by explaining the Passover in light of Christ’s last day and sacrifice. And how peace is only found through Christ, through Grace and Forgiveness.

Also Romy Nordlinger does a masterful job of drawing you into the story. She is a new favorite, not once did I remember that it was only one person’s voice I was hearing.

interesting turns, not her best story but good

Good but lacked the fire of so of the other books she has written. I liked the Bible times story the most.

Didn’t like narrator.

Hard to get into because of the voice. Too young preschool type story telling. I really wanted to get into it too

Great story, but disliked the reading.

It was difficult to experience the story when the reader described dramatic, sorrowful and tragic events as if they are fluffy unicorns and cotton candy.
