The Zion Chronicles Book 2
This is the story of Rachel, a returning Jewess whose secret past is uncovered, leaving her in grave danger.
She survived the Holocaust at great personal cost. But will her past now destroy her?
It’s January 1948. After suffering the horrors of years in a Nazi concentration camp, Rachel Lubetkin has at last come home to Jerusalem . . . and the family who thought she was dead. But the mark on her arm has also marked her heart. Will her secrets, if revealed, discredit her among her own people? And at a time of great danger, when she so desperately wants to help?
British soldiers stand idly by while Arabs attack Jewish transports in the besieged Old City. Moshe Sachar, archaeologist by day and secret blockade runner by night, determines to fight for the ancient promises. But he can’t shake the vision of the beautiful young woman he rescued from the sea.
The very same Jewess that Gerhardt, a former Nazi, vows to find . . . to make her pay.
The nation was gripped in a life-and-death struggle for survival. No less momentous was Rachel’s own personal struggle-
The Gates of Zion vividly portrayed both the indomitable courage and hope of the Jewish people streaming into Israel after the Holocaust as well as their intense battle to protect their new homeland. The sequel, A Daughter of Zion, centers around a returning Jewess named Rachel who survived the Nazi desolation, but only at a great personal cost. Smuggled into the besieged Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, she discovers members of her long-lost family. Rachel decides she cannot leave the Old City or the people who stand as one thin line between its survival.
When secrets of her past are uncovered, she is discredited before the very people she wants so desperately to help. Alienated from her own people and left in despair, she is not aware of the enemy forces which threaten her very life.
A sweeping historical novel of a young nation struggling to keep its mandate and a young woman struggling for her life.
