Ellie Warne, a young American photojournalist, finds herself in
Jerusalem in 1947. She unwittingly becomes a pawn in a political chess
game when she photographs some ancient scrolls discovered by Bedouins.
Who would guess that a few innocent photos could entangle her in such a
desperate web of intrigue and peril?

David Meyer seems to love
her dearly, but Moshe Sachar has a purpose and commitment in life that
intrigues her more than she can say. Through it all, Ellie discovers a
people, a spirit, and a person who profoundly change the direction of
her life.
