The phone call turned out to lead to a more dangerous and more
consequential journey than Emma could have imagined … or feared.
The call was from the woman Emma despised most in the world: her
father’s wife, Emma’s stepmother, a woman who had taken away Emma’s
father. Not once. Not twice. Three times. She had turned Daniel Seeger
into a born-again Christian, married him, and dragged him off to Israel,
where they worked as some sort of missionaries. It was an occupation
Emma viewed as misguided, if not outright dangerous.
Emma learns, her father has disappeared in the midst of escalating
political tension and violence. After early efforts to find him prove
fruitless, Emma launches out on an odyssey filled with adventure,
frustration, danger, and an unlikely partner in her stepmother Katya, whose
faith alternately repulses and intrigues Emma. Their conflicting
personalities and competing beliefs could even endanger the success of
the one thing they have in common: their shared goal of finding Daniel
and returning him to safety.
Will they come together to rescue him before it’s too late? Or will their greatest fears be realized?
