(Book 2: Promise of Zion)
Dov Zalinski has at last made it to Palestine! But his arrival was hardly what he was expecting-pushed off the leaky immigrant ship Aliyah, dragged ashore by an odd British girl, then taken by truck to Kibbutz Yad Shalom, a Jewish group farm. And just when it seems Dov will finally get to Jerusalem to find his missing family, the thirteen-year-old Holocaust survivor is swept up in the country's explosive political situation... and the plight of Emily Parkinson.
Emily Parkinson is not pleased at having been separated from her father, a British army officer, while he was arresting those aboard the Aliyah-not to mention being pushed aboard and transported to a shabby kibbutz, along with the Jewish boy she rescued. Although impressed by the courage of the Jewish immigrants, Emily is desperate to find a way home. But one misstep could place her in terrible danger..
