Shulamit Shepher pays one last visit to her grandparents home in Jerusalem after a fateful discovery—a mysterious and valuable Torah manuscript thats been stashed away in the attic genizah, a depository for old or damaged sacred documents, has been uncovered. So begins a remarkable journey that spans four generations of the family Shepher, one that begs Shulamit to reconsider not only her ancestors history and heritage but her own passions, faith, and choices for the future. Haunting and illuminating, The Genizah at the House of Shepher is a tale of love and loss, exile and belonging, tradition and myth that no reader will soon forget.

Synopsis:

A scholar, returning to her family home in Jerusalem, becomes embroiled in a family dispute over a discovered Codex, brought home originally by her great-great grandfather, in this novel that traces one woman's quest to find both love and a true promised land.
