Book Description

A nighttime meeting with a stranger could change everything…

Dov Zalinski has learned quickly that the Jerusalem of 1948 is a dangerous place for everyone, whether Jew, Arab, or British. Yet not even the threat of sniper attacks can keep the young Holocaust survivor from searching for his family—or what’s left of it. Dov’s growing involvement with the Haganah, a Jewish resistance movement, may be just the added help he needs to locate his brother, Natan, lost during the war. Will God answer his prayer?

Emily Parkinson has watched the city she loves turn ugly with violence. Her parents are anxious to send her on the next ship to England, but Emily cannot face the thought of leaving her home in Jerusalem to return to a place she barely remembers. With every bomb blast and nighttime raid, though, the fight for Palestine hits closer to home, until it is only a matter of time before Emily’s own family is affected. When the day comes to say goodbye, will she be brave enough to go?

Editorial Reviews


"The stories are filled with surprising spine-tingling adventures along with insight into how people actually feel, both Jewish and Palestinian." -- Christian Observer, Aug. 2001

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Adventure Book for Young People! January 2, 2002
Looking for a nice adventure book for a young lady or a young man? Look no farther then this book "Brother Enemy", book #4 in the Promise of Zion series. This book picks up with Dov Zalinski, a young Jewish man in Jerusalem, who is hoping to find his brother, Natan. He believes that Natan is his only surviving relative. Dov is a Holocaust survivor, and proves to be a very quick witted young man. His quick wit and survival instincts come in very handy has he makes his way through a Jerusalem that is being systematically destroyed by bombings.
He has a good friend in Emily Parkinson, another quick witted young person. However, Emily has a problem in helping her young friend, her father. Her father is an officer in the British Army and he is actively trying to find any Jewish people who are trying to regain their land. However, other members of Emily's family, her Aunt Rachel and Uncle Anthony working to help the Jewish people by witnessing to them about Jesus. Emily's aunt and uncle find themselves shoved almost into the middle of the Jewish resistance movement.
The book has a lot of research and wonderful history tied into it. You can't help but have your curiosity peaked into finding out more details of this period of our history. The book is written in such a manner that you don't have to have read the first three books in the series to enjoy this book, but it will make you want to pick them out to find out more about Dov, Emily and their adventures.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An exciting book for young readers. In Denmark after the Nazis took over, Jewish Danes live in fear of their lives. Sister and brother twins have a Jewish friend and try to help him escape the Nazis. .A great and accurate lesson in history that is interesting and not gory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. August 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although this book (& the whole series) is aimed at older kids it really is interesting enough for adults to enjoy. There is enough action and suspense to keep me reading. The characters are real, and the things that happen in the books are historical.
