Two women, 200 years apart, seek their past and their future on journeys that will link the old world with the new and change the map of Florida.
Setting sail for America in 1781, Rachel Levy and her father Moses are captured by Barbary pirates and brought to Morocco for sale. The loathsome vizier forces Moses into slavery as his assistant and compels Rachel to choose between himself and the king's harem. Without money or resources, Rachel and Moses must use their wits to find a way to freedom.
Two hundred years later in West Virginia, Sara Miller's sweet, loving grandmother Ruth is killed, and Sara discovers Ruth's buried past, long hidden by the terror of the Holocaust. Ruth's bequest sends Sara on a journey that will uncover Ruth's mystery and the link to their ancestor, Rachel Levy.
Sara and her new friend Josh continue the adventure begun in Shadow of the Rock. Now they must find the rightful owner of a Rembrandt lost in the Holocaust, but danger stalks them through the streets of Gibraltar, forcing them to flee to Paris. As they dodge thieves and a murderer, Sara and Josh struggle against impossible odds to fulfill a promise made 60 years before.
