|A breathtaking historical novel.
High on a rooftop in the Jewish ghetto, under the light of a star-filled sky, a father speaks to his son and daughter. He speaks to them of Jewish destiny, of Hashem s promise to Avraham Avinu to make his children like the stars of the heavens. He gives them brief instructions, and then ... he vanishes.
This breathtaking novel -- set against the backdrop of the little-known story of Rome's Jews during the Second World War -- will surprise and uplift you. It is a story of despair and hope, a saga of transformation and, ultimately, rebirth.
