Review
In this thrilling sequel to The Gates of Zion, the author, Bodie Thoene expands on a character that in the previous book was not that integral to the storyline, but that I have now come to love in this second book of the Zion Chronicles series.

Not everything ended after the Holocaust.
Set in 1948 in Israel, when Britain was preparing to leave, the Jewish people are caught. They are not allowed to own weapons while the British occupy their country, yet as soon as the British leave, their enemy will be ready to attack, and they will have nothing to defend themselves. The only option is to smuggle items in to the heavily guarded Old City. But how?

Rachel Lubetkin has just escaped the prison camps of the Holocaust, and still bears marks from the trauma that she endured there. Desperate for a chance to help others, and hide herself away from others, she volunteers for a mission that she secretly plans to make a suicide mission. Yet those who love her have realized what is happening and after she leaves, they try to make sure that she comes back. But the way to the Old City is completely blocked and everything and everyone is searched. Yet they must find a way in, to save not only Rachel, but everyone else stranded there.

I absolutely love this series and can't wait to read books 3-5! I really liked this character that had a much more minor role in the last book. I'm curious if the author plans to continue switching to a different character in each book, detailing part of their life as the war continues, because from these first two books it is quite easy to see how drastically different the viewpoints of two radically different people can be, and would be most interesting to see more in the next books. I highly recommend the Zion Chronicles series by Bodie Thoene!

Out of Many Waters

Review
Because her parents were Jews, secretly practicing their religion despite opposition during the Portuguese Inquisition, Isobel Ben Lazar and her older sister Maria were kidnapped and forced to work at a Brazilian Monastery. When an opportunity arises for escape, they seize it and leave. Unfortunately, in order to escape successfully, they needed to separate, and leave on different ships, hoping to eventually meet up with each other, and eventually find their parents that they were separated from six years before. Along the way, Isobel meets a group of Jews running away in order to find religious freedom. They soon befriend her, the stowaway on board, on their way to Amsterdam. But things don’t happen the way that they all hoped, and Isobel wonders if she will ever see her sister and parents again.

This book is not one that I would read over and over, but it’s still a great book that tells about a time frame that I previously did not know much about. However, the ending leaves me wanting a sequel. I really can’t say much more than that without giving spoilers ? But all in all, a wonderful read with lots of information about that specific time frame, and also a look at the plight of refugees throughout history.
