Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 087123940X, Paperback)The nation was gripped in a life-and-death struggle for survival. No less momentous was Rachel's own personal struggle-
The Gates of Zion vividly portrayed both the indomitable courage and hope of the Jewish people streaming into Israel after the Holocaust as well as their intense battle to protect their new homeland. The sequel, A Daughter of Zion, centers around a returning Jewess named Rachel who survived the Nazi desolation, but only at a great personal cost. Smuggled into the besieged Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, she discovers members of her long-lost family. Rachel decides she cannot leave the Old City or the people who stand as one thin line between its survival.
When secrets of her past are uncovered, she is discredited before the very people she wants so desperately to help. Alienated from her own people and left in despair, she is not aware of the enemy forces which threaten her very life.
A sweeping historical novel of a young nation struggling to keep its mandate and a young woman struggling for her life.
