Hello! Today I'm happy to announce I am the first stop of the Rebirth blog tour, sponsored by Lightning Book Promotions. I was all set to offer a review of Dave Longeuay's Rebirth, but technical and postal difficulties have interfered. All is not lost however, because I have a blurb, a trailer, and links!
How did a remnant of scattered Jews rise to build a mighty superpower in the Middle East? Fleeing his father’s anti-Semitic organization, Charles Devonshire journeys into the most volatile landgrab in history—Post WWII Palestine. Charles pursues a beautiful but mysterious librarian, Gladia, who introduces him to the elaborate Jewish underground.
While joining their plight to reestablish a homeland, he falls in love with her and faces painful challenges in developing a relationship within their culture gap. And in the midst of battling the hostile inhabitants who also laid claim to Palestine, he searches for clues of his own troubled past. Can Charles pursue love, uncover his family secrets and avoid being trapped in the middle of the world’s longest feud? Rebirth draws you into 1948, into a world of intrigue, espionage and anti-Semitism. Witness how ancient prophecies were fulfilled against impossible odds as Israel built a nation and defied skeptics. Journey through the precarious events that led to Israel’s miraculous rebirth on May 14, 1948.
Experience the unrelenting pursuits of the most persecuted race, and how their renewed strength reestablished their original language, customs and land cultivations after 2,000 years of desolation—an accomplishment no other nation can claim. Dave Longeuay is a multimedia producer and has been an avid student of prophecy and Israeli biblical history for over two decades.
Pretty awesome sounding, right? As a history major, I took my non-Western world classes in Middle Eastern history, so this one is most definitely on my To Read List.
And if that doesn't catch your attention, how about this trailer:
