AUDIENCE

17 and up. Lovers of classic historical fiction, particularly that dealing with Nazism in general and the Holocaust specifically, are obvious candidates, as is this country’s formidably well-read Jewish demographic.

 

But The Trumpets of Jericho is confined to neither. It is for anyone seeking a good adventure yarn elegantly written, with real-life characters, historical verisimilitude, high drama, deep insight, and packing an emotional punch. Given, too, that half its heroes are women should help it appeal more than it normally might to a female readership.

 

I very carefully chose a cover design enigmatic enough to make people want to investigate further. Who wouldn’t be curious to see the connection between a famed biblical reference and a swastika? Indeed, this very curiosity is often the first thing I’m asked to satisfy at public appearances.
