When young American journalist Ellie Warne photographs the Dead Sea Scrolls – without realising their significance – she is caught up in battles between Jewish underground agencies, Arab terrorists, and the British occupying forces. Should she trust Moshe, the quiet Hebrew scholar, or David, her lifelong sweetheart? As she tries to make sense of her friends’ talk of the God of Israel, and as escaped Nazis hunt her down, her path is crossed and recrossed by
Yacov, streetwise orphan, whose only friends are his grandfather the Rabbi, and his dog, Shaul
Rachel, embittered survivor of the death camps, hungry for food and tenderness
Ibrahim El Hassan, the terrorist who will stop at nothing to take revenge on Rachel
Ehud, intrepid fisherman whose cargo boat brings in not sardines but survivors of Auschwitz
