Nicole Berman is determined to find there the first concrete evidence of the biblical patriarch Abraham while leading her first archeological dig in Jordan. During the excavation, Berman discovers a 4,000-year-old complex that includes evidence she believes proves her theory. But a devastating cave-in nearly kills her and she awakens in a Saudi clinic, haunted by visions of what she may have seen - evidence of Abraham and his two sons, the half-brothers Isaac and Ishmael. One discovery leads to another, and Nicole sets off across the region to connect pieces of an ancient puzzle.

A fascinating book. The author did an excellent job of moving between 3 different times and settings. It was easy to follow and intriguing. I’m looking forward to the rest in the series and plan to pre order the audible version as soon as it is available. The narration was outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters.
