Description
Information
We meet Nat, the Edwardian immigrant torn between his ambition to be the model Englishman - serving the British Empire in Palestine - and his desperate desire to build a homeland for the Jews. We get to know great-uncle Mick, the 1930s firebrand who preaches revolution on the streets of London's East End - forever caught between the universal cause of workers' liberation and the urgent needs of his own people. And Jonathan's mother Sara - a child raised in religious devotion yet tested by a life that seems to be the work of a harsh, unforgiving God. These three remarkable people each find their own solutions to the eternal dilemmas of belonging in this moving, uplifting journey into one of history's oldest peoples.
