Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a unique recounting of a familiar story — the siege of Masada in the first century C.E. — from the diary of a teenage girl. Hannah begins her journal as a young girl of thirteen, wide-eyed at family trips to the bustling market in Jerusalem and eagerly anticipating her imminent womanhood. Yet she confides her skepticism of Judaism, a religion that requires total devotion and much personal sacrifice.<P>Yet as Hannah's family is forced to move first to Jerusalem, and then to Masada, her religious awakening provides her with the strength and inspiration to endure persecution, terror and shattering personal loss. By the end of her diary, Hannah embraces Judaism as fully as she embraces life — and ultimately death — among a band of courageous martyrs fighting for the survival of Israel.
