Dvora Waysman weaves a beautiful story of the struggles which faced the Jews of Yemen when they came to Palestine. Those struggles continued with the building of the modern State of Israel. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in a background of the region.

The amount of research done before publishing this book is noticeable. Could not put it down, finished it in a day ! (and I don't usually read much)

Interesting, historical novel about Jerusalem and the different communities living there at the time. The emphasis is on the history rather than the storyline. Strong main character.

This book gives the reader a good knowledge of the history and culture of the Jews who lived in Yemen at the turn of the century and their pilgrimages to the land of Israel. It traces four generations of a family of goldsmiths. I got caught up in reading about their lives.
Dvora Waysman describes Israel and particulary Jerusalem with knowledge and love of the land.
