In To Catch the Wind's exciting sequel, the young Egyptian Baraka is shocked to learn he may be next in line to the throne of Egypt. After the death of his mother, Princess Tanafriti, daughter of Pharaoh Merenptah and first wife of King Solomon, Baraka is charged with carrying out her dying wish and returning the only remaining copies of King Solomon's writings to Jerusalem. When Baraka sails with his friend Dov, they must rely on the wind of the Lord to safely deliver them, especially when Baraka learns he may be the only survivor of Pharaoh Merenptah's dynasty and next in line to the throne of Egypt. As Baraka and his father, Kamenwati, seek Egyptians faithful to Pharaoh Merenptah's family, the adventure continues through a deadly chase across the burning deserts of ancient Egypt. Led into the underground chambers of an ancient temple, the travelers make a startling discovery and solve the mystery of a long-lost relative. But the peril of the desert is matched by betrayal within the band of travelers. The usurper of the Egyptian throne, Amenmose, has crushed his opponents and is now trying to destroy Baraka and his men. Will the rightful man become pharaoh, or will Amenmose continue his oppression? In The Wind of the Lord, William Collins's characters learn the importance of faith in the one true God and of allowing Him to guide them into new and exciting directions as they encounter the unexpected.
