The story opens in Poland during WWII. A young woman running for her life abandons her newborn twin sons in order to save their lives. They are brought to America and raised by two different families.
Fifty years later Rabbi Jeremiah Neumann lives a pious life in New York, raising his daughters to be observant Jews. He and his wife are surprised to discover the existence of his twin brother Isaiah, a Priest in a nearby church. The brothers meet and decide to travel to Poland and learn more about their past. Page by page we join them as the past and the present mesh together and the atrocities of the past touch the lives of the present.
I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy history mixed in with suspense.
