Bestselling author Robert Whitlow continues the story of Hana and Daud from Chosen People as they fight for their faith, their family, and their home.
Now married, Hana and Daud are establishing their life together in the United States. They cannot safely return to Israel because of threats to Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she’s pregnant. But Daud can’t shake the call to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target.
Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a current case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he knows he needs Hana’s knowledge and skill in getting to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts.
Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help the US intelligence agencies in extracting a Ukrainian doctor from a dicey situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can’t resist the call to Jerusalem and sets off a series of events, putting thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child.
With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land explores what it means to be called home.
