It’s November 29, 1947. The streets of Jerusalem ring with celebration as the British Mandate of Palestine is carved into Arab and Jewish states. Politicians promise peace, but those who remember the prophecies know the truth.
When photojournalist Ellie Warne snaps pictures of some ancient scrolls, she unwittingly becomes the target of a sinister plan. Whom can she trust? David Meyer, a decorated American war pilot, who seems more comfortable among the stars than on earth with her? Or the scholarly Jew, Moshe Sachar, who hides from commitment behind his studies but says he loves her?
As everything she believes is challenged, Ellie must decide whether to risk her life—and her heart—for a people she has just met.
For years we have been hearing from readers of The Zion Chronicles and Zion Covenant that we MUST continue the story!

Fasten your seat belt, we're riding back through the blockade to the siege of Jerusalem! More later...
