I can't possibly read every single book that comes into my inbox. But, some books are intriguing enough that I want to tell you about them, even if I don't read them. Even though this isn't my usual type of book, I found the synopsis quite interesting.
From the publisher:
TORN BLOOD tells the adventure of the conflict over Israel. David Bain brought together researchers from the US as well as Israel, spending seven years trying to understand the truth of Jewish rights to a homeland in Israel free from outside menace.
His research led him to write Torn Blood, an adventure novel in which souls are locked in a mortal battle to rid Jerusalem of her Jewish residents as truth is revealed and lives are faced with an existential choice—safety from persecution in America or aliyah, return, to a land that calls them home but could demand their lives.
Three weeks before reporting for duty at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, Addison Deverell arrives in Israel on a mission—to find the source of the conflict between Arabs and Jews. Bound to an escort by the embassy, he is unable to begin his search as time is running out. Mere days before he must report for duty, Addison is freed from his forced escort. As another escort takes his place, Addison issues an ultimatum that, with or without help, he is going into Palestinian territory for answers he can’t find in Israel. Addison races to uncover truth that promises to establish a career as he faces danger from those he seeks to understand and finds himself a pawn in an international plot to drive Israel’s Jews into the sea.
Nearly seven thousand miles away in Oregon, Dr. Janelle Henning confronts a secret that threatens to destroy the only family she’s ever known. A search for understanding thrusts her into a world long buried to confront a birthright hidden by the passage of time. Brought together by events, Janelle and Addison discover hidden identities in a relationship they have shared for a lifetime.
