Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rahel knew it was written in the holy books that her people, Ethiopian Jews, would someday return to Jerusalem. But she didn't imagine that the journey would be so difficult. Blinded as a child and now forced to leave her parents, Rahel has only her brother and her grandmother's storytelling beads to guide her on this pilgrimage.

Life is no simpler for Sahay, whose family was killed by the raiding military. Now her uncle, her last remaining relative, is rushing her through the night, far away from the only home she's ever known. To make matters worse, there are Falashas, Ethiopian Jews, in their escape party.

When soldiers on horseback order the men of the group to return to their villages, Rahel and Sahay must overcome their fear and prejudice. Turning to each other to survive, they discover the power of stories and the healing qualities of friendship.

An author's note adds historical and political context to the story.

Synopsis:

Running for their lives to escape the political upheaval in Ethiopia, two young girls from different faiths form an unlikely friendship.
