Summary
"For young Reuven Malter, it a time of testing. With his teachers, he struggles for recognition of his boldly radical methods of scholarship. With his old friend Danny Saunders--who himself had abandoned his legacy as the chosen heir to his father's rabbinical dynasty for the uncertain life of a healer--he battles to save a sensitive boy imprisoned by his genius and rage, defeated by the same forces of an unyielding past that challenge Reuven. Painfully and, at last, triumphantly, Reuven grows into a guardian of the ancient, sacred promise to his people, while earning his hard-fought right to make his own beginning."
