“The story begins and ends in the present day in England that gives it relevance to what was revered in ancient times is still treasured today. In 586 BC, Jerusalem was destroyed and Jeremiah, God’s prophet, escapes with the last royal survivors and a group of refugees. By boat they travel first to Egypt – where an encounter with British seafarers starts the group on a long sea journey full of violent adventures and saved by God’s guiding words through Jeremiah, his prophet.

“The characters are so realistic and beautifully crafted – the research in these ancient worlds is immaculate and it feels like you are right there with them in a village in Egypt or in the violent storm on the Atlantic – it reads like a movie script.”
