Reseña del editor
Father, Son, Stone is a historical mystery novel. The story takes place in Israel.
Nota de la solapa
Father, Son, Stone blends history and mystery to reveal the secret of the most controversial religious site in Jerusalem - known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
In the year 2035, a grandfather and his grandson enter the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount. The grandfather, speaking in Arabic, tells his grandson why Jews no longer pray at the Western Wall.
The grandfather's story begins in 1967 during the Six-Day War, with three Israeli paratroopers fighting in the battle for Jerusalem. The tale continues fifty years later, in 2017, after a catastrophic event near the Temple Mount brings together the same three men - now the Prime Minister of Israel, a Justice of the Supreme Court of Israel, and a Mossad agent. As the crisis unfolds, the three seek to discover the reason behind mysterious events that occurred on the Temple Mount during the Six-Day War. The truth, when finally revealed, changes Jerusalem, and the people who live there, forever.

As one of the witnesses explains during the hearing, “History is a mixture of what is remembered, forgotten, hidden and confused.” He asks, “Is memory accurate or just what people want to remember as true?” As the judge reflects upon the testimony, he shares the insight that, “In court, as in archaeological excavations, truth had to be extracted from layers of compressed historical rubble. Truth was like sunlight, reflecting from the sea or the desert. Depending on what it struck, and who was watching sunlight could be brilliant, subtle, distinct, or vague. A judge sifted through testimony, documents, innuendo, ambiguity, faded memory, and bias. Even then, it was difficult to determine what was true.”
Much later in the novel, after the judge hears compelling testimony based on memories that were passed down from generation to generation (certainly not the kind of testimony admissible in your typical court), we learn, “Silence descended in the room. [The judge] felt the flash of understanding that struck him whenever he reached a decision. It came to him in an instant. It was a sense of order and rationality that later could be parsed into words and sentences.”
I greatly enjoyed the creative thinking, writing and the judicial wisdom shared in the words and sentences of this compelling story.
I remember everything. But I especially liked the fiction of the future.
We were on the second to the last plane out of Beirut and told we were going to Italy. While landing the pilot said he was told that Italy was too full of evacuees and that we would land in 20 minutes in Frankfurt, Germany. Our luggage did make it to Italy. In addition to my daughter being 18 days old she was premature. We were immediately put in Officers Quarter with cash for immediate needs and a wonderful German doctor.
