-- Paul Hertel, Martha Stewart's Whole Living
"Presents a fascinating story full of intrigue and history. Birney's fiction seamlessly blends science and religion into a tale worthy of Indiana Jones . . . The book left this reader confident that idealism is not dead and that, sometimes, it can be the road map by which we might save ourselves."
--Cynthia Warren, Daily Freeman
"Birney infuses this epic novel with feminine echoes of The Da Vinci Code and The Red Tent, with her eyes on the prize of world peace. Reporter Maggie Seline courts controversy by championing an international Jerusalem...when she disappears, women around the globe march for peace...powerful men vie for two ancient artifacts."
