THE TORCHBEARER follows THE SWORDSMAN as the second book of the WINDOW TO YESTERDAY series.
It is the eve of the First Crusade. Young David lives in the land once called Israel, now ruled by Muslims. From his shackled destiny, David rebels and seeks adventure and freedom.
But at what cost? Brilliant Rebecca and Rabbi Elazar have found a haven in the idyllic German lands, where Judaism blossoms. Then comes the fateful November cry for revenge… With love and laughter, courage and betrayal, together – and apart – they step into war.
Fast-paced but profound, as much comic as tragic, The Torchbearer captures Jewish history’s harrowing glory.
