Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was an unusual friendship: 11-year-old Michael Devlin, an Irish Catholic from Brooklyn, and Judah Hirsch, a rabbi and refugee from Prague, meet during a swirling blizzard on the Saturday morning. For Michael, Hirsch is an extraordinary window to ancient times and foreign lands; for the Rabbi, Michael is an encyclopedia of cultural knowledge of his new land. In baseball, the two find a common love, but when some anti-Semitic hoodlums threaten them with violence, the two must look for a miracle in a most unlikely place. LG selection. HC: Little, Brown. (Fiction--General)

Synopsis:

In the year 1947, Michael Devlin, eleven years old and 100 percent American-Irish, is about to forge an extraordinary bond with a refugee of war named Rabbi Judah Hirsch. Standing united against a common enemy, they will summon from ancient sources a power in desperately short supply in modern Brooklyn-a force that's forgotten by most of the world but is known to believers as magic.

Just as Michael Devlin imagined himself inside the stories told by Rabbi Hirsch, I fell right into the pages of this book--into the streets of 1920's Brooklyn. I heard crack of Jackie Robinson's bat through the radio speakers, I feared the Falcons, I felt the warmth of unlikely friendship during a cold august snow and I saw the immense power of believing--no matter the religion.
