Overview

Nothing in her life as a wife, mother, and teacher had prepared her for this...

At forty-two, Abigail MacLeod is about to realize a lifelong dream--participation in an archaeological dig in Israel. Crushed by her husband's decision to end their marriage, Abby clings to the hope that somehow this trip will help to bring an element of peace into her chaotic life. But when tragedy taints the summer's promise, Abby questions the wisdom of staying on.

The comforting friendship of archaeologist Hannah Rahob and the captivating wonder of the Holy Land compel Abby to remain. But what she discovers beneath the surface of Israel's beauty and the intrigue of its past is a history of pain and struggle. As the tumultuous world of first-century Palestine comes to life amid the ruins, Abby wonders if the faint remnant of her childhood faith could be the lifeline she's been searching for.

    SUPERIOR !!!!!

    Lynn has a way of putting you 'into' the story. But best of all she writes meaty Christian fiction that has everything a story should have to intrigue you and bless you -- this one is no exception. Eve's Daughters was my favorite but this one runs a close 2nd! OK LYNN -- lets have MORE books out soon!!!!!

    Riveting story, couldn't put it down!

    Very easy reading, from the beginning to the end. I felt a kinship with the characters, as if they had become my dearest friends. Inspiring reading. Reminds me of my many blessings.
