Born into American society, then moved to Berlin during the Nazis’ rise to power, a young Jewish girl has no idea what lies ahead. Meanwhile, orbiting high above the earth, a young physician from a civilization light years away, studies and records her every move, hoping to better understand the Hebrew culture. Time goes by, and though they have never met, to him she seems like family. War finds the girl in her teens, and trauma exacts a heavy toll. She embarks on a pilgrimage which takes her from country to country only to leave her in ill health, without family, and an outcast among her own people. Then, when war looms again, the now 19-year-old woman is trapped in a hopeless, life-threatening situation. Painfully aware and thousands of miles out in space, the grief-stricken doctor goes before his ship’s council with an urgent plea. The council’s options are few—break strict protocol for the sake of their beloved physician or allow the young woman to perish. The courses of two civilizations hang in the balance.

I was impressed with how the author brought galactic and earth life together; how God is not limited to just the earth, but the whole universe. The story was riveting; could not put it down.
Correct and Compelling!
Personally, I am a huge fan of history. I love reading historical fiction, especially about World War II. I appreciated the research and historical correctness of the book. It is very obvious that many hours of research went into this book to make fiction as true to the actual events that unfortunately took place during World War II. However, the book went way beyond facts to present a story that was compelling and heart warming. My heart ached at the main characters misfortune and heartaches. I found myself immersed into a story that I kept reading to resolve the plot twists that were presented so eloquently. Above all of this, I constantly saw the story of the Gospel presented in true evangelical fashion throughout the entirety of the story, from the meaning of Jesus Christ and why He came to His characteristics within many of the characters actions and thoughts.
Great reading. Entertaining and Inspirational.
