A Moonlight Escape--Their Only Hope For Safety!

Dov Zalinksi has achieved his goal of broadcasting from Old City Jerusalem, only to find himself trapped in the siege of the Jewish Quarter. Escalating Arab attacks rock the home where he has taken temporary refuge and leave a dozen orphans displaced and alone. With war just days away, the Jewish Quarter is no longer a safe place for anyone, let alone children. Caught in circumstances beyond his control, Dov comes up with a daring plan for their escape. Can he trust God to help them find freedom?

Emily Parkinson's journey home to England takes an unexpected twist when her ship docks at Cyprus for emergency repairs. Knowing Dov's father spent his final days in the island's detainment camps for illegal Jews, Emily sees the detour as her chance to search for Dov's missing mother--if Emily can just find a way into the camps. Could Leah Zalinski still be alive? Emily will stop at nothing to learn the truth....
