Fleeing his home from persecution, 23-year-old Elijah takes refuge with a young widow and her son in the beautiful town of Akbar. Already struggling to maintain his sanity in a chaotic world of tyranny and war, he is now forced to choose between his newfound love and his overwhelming sense of duty. Evoking all the drama and intrigue of the colorful, chaotic world of the Middle East, Paula Coelho turns the trials of Elijah into an intensely moving and inspiring story one that powerfully brings out the universal theme of how faith and love can ultimately triumph over suffering.
