    This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in 15th-century Spain.

    When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding - an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair - only begin to unlock its deep mysteries.

    Yvette says: "Amazing, fabulous, wonderful!!!"
    "A most insightful and beautifully written book"
    Overall

    Geraldine Brooks brilliantly portrays the lives of each character that has touched the hagada, giving insight into not only their feelings but beliefs, and showing that only through respecting every belief system can we grow together. Edwina Wren is fantastic with her mastery of the different accents and her understanding of the emotions the author is trying to portray. Fantastic!
