    schema:reviewBody ""It is 1947, and in the British Mandate of Palestine the political pressure is rising. Jewish immigrants are arriving from Europe in their thousands, smuggled ashore past the armed patrols on the beach. The Wertman family, like the Jewish community, is divided: Avram is a member of the Irgun, a terrorist group fighting to end occupation; his daughter Hannah works for the Haganah, peacefully campaigning for a Jewish state." "David Millar and Will Griffiths are two English sergeants, reluctant conscripts, who transfer to Intelligence in order to escape the appalling scenes on the shores. Half-Catholic, half-Jewish, David has mixed feelings about his work, more so when he meets, befriends and becomes close to Hannah. Will, meanwhile, is finding trouble at the Jerusalem jazz bar where he plays his saxophone." "For Avram, everything is done in the name of 'the cause'. It is something from which he cannot be shaken and, as his story intertwines with those of Will, David and Hannah, it is a belief that pits politics against the personal, family against fervour. Because sometimes when history is being made, homes and hearts can end up being broken."--Jacket." ;
