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.

Seems like the book could have been done in 2 chapters, maybe 3. In the end there is no exciting part, just a slow moving beginning to the story. Like the last few books in the left behind series were really slow and seemed to drag out, that is the case here. Others have reviewed it quite highly, but I had a tough time just continuing to listen to it because very little happens from the start to the end.
