Description

Peter Romaine, a young, Christian Englishman living in Switzerland, is a linguistics student with an extraordinary talent for languages. In 1945, after the end of World War II, he discovers a hospital ward occupied by young concentration camp survivors. Driven by his humanitarian instincts, he becomes their mentor, their rescuer, and their guardian. In this historical novel filled with adventure, danger, love, and even humor, Peter finds a way to acquire a ship, train a crew, and undergo an inspection on the high seas by a British warship as he attempts to take his young charges to Palestine. When he gets there, however, Peter will undergo another journey, this time a spiritual one.
