Fascinating History, Breathtaking Adventure, and Unique Jewish Heroism
A young man searching for adventure – and gold. Two Jewish children kidnapped and raised by a tribe of Cherokee. A riverboat gambler tasked with raising the Torah-observant children of his late wife. Rochel Istrin, author of the bestselling novel Hidden, now takes us on a remarkable journey of adventure and self-discovery. Set against the backdrop of America’s “wild west” and pre-Civil-War South, we will meet a host of beautifully-portrayed characters, each searching for their loved ones who were taken captive – and each searching also for their own destiny.
From a wagon train traveling endless miles over the Great Plains to a Cherokee village; from a Southern plantation to a sinister and deadly Louisiana bayou; from an elegant steamboat plying the waters of the Mississippi River to an Indian canoe caught in raging whirlpools, here is a story that is both exciting and thought-provoking, a page-turning, heart-stopping and totally unforgettable novel.
