Everyone is searching. Not everyone knows it.
A single phone call launches twenty – three year – old Emma Seeger on the journey of a lifetime. And it turns out to be a more dangerous – and more consequential – journey than she could have imagined….. or feared.
The call is from the woman Emma despises most in the world – her father’s wife, Emma’s stepmother, a woman who had taken away Emma’s father. Not once. Not twice. Three times. She had turn Daniel Seeger into a “burn – again” Christian, married him, and dragged him off to Israel, where worked as some sort of missionaries – an occupation Emma views as misguided, if not outright dangerous.
Now Emma learns her father has disappeared in the midst of escalating political tension and violence. After early efforts to find him prove fruitless, Emma embarks on an odyssey filled with adventure, frustration, danger, and an unlikely partner – her stepmother, Katya, whose faith alternately repulses and intrigues Emma. Their conflicting personalities and competing beliefs could even endanger the success of the one thing they have in common: their shared goal of finding Daniel and returning him to safety.
