A Search For A Homeland In A World Shadowed By War

Dov Zalinski has nothing left in the ruins of World War II only the promise his mother made when she left him at a Warsaw orphanage: "I'll come back for you, and together we'll go to Jerusalem." Seven hard years later, she still hasn't returned.

On the hope that she and the rest of his family have somehow survived the terrible Nazi death camps and went on ahead of him, the thirteen-year-old sets out alone for the Promised Land. Dov is determined to be with his family again even if it means risking his life to do it.

Emily Parkinson has it all as the spoiled only child of a British major stationed in 947 Jerusalem. Her cozy, perfect world has cushioned her from the always-present danger that haunts the people of Palestine until now. Tensions between Arab and Jew are growing fast as ships of illegal Jewish immigrants try to break through the British barricade. Now, not even Emily's father will be able to protect her from what she is about to face.
