It’s November, 1947, and a political storm gathers over the Middle East as the United Nations partitions Palestine. Great Britain is determined not to lose control of the region, and Arab forces are desperate to seize all of this holy land.
Along with thousands of other immigrants, holocaust survivor Hannah Daniels and her husband Ephraim have made Palestine their home, with hopes of helping to establish an independent Jewish state. But unlike most newcomers in this land where religion shapes both personal and political actions, the Daniels family is LDS and must fashion their own customs.
As the turmoil escalates inevitably toward war, the Daniels are forced to fight for their newfound freedom—and their lives. While Hannah and the children struggle to survive in the Old City, an area under siege, Ephraim, a battle-experienced American pilot, fights for this land as if it were his own.
An epic story of a family united in hope, in a country divided by religion and politics—Land Divided, volume two of the House of Israel series, explores the indomitable spirit of a remarkable family in a land divided. [from publisher's web site]
