About the Book

A Traveler at the Gates of Wisdom

From the award-winning bestselling author of THE HEART'S INVISIBLE FURIES comes an epic tale of humanity --- a daring, profound novel that tells the story of all of us.

This story starts with a family. For now, it is a father and a mother with two sons --- one with his father’s violence in his blood, one with his mother’s artistry. One leaves. One stays. They will be joined by others whose deeds will determine their fate. It is a beginning.

Their stories will intertwine and evolve over the course of 2,000 years. They will meet again and again at different times and in different places. From Palestine at the dawn of the first millennium and journeying across 50 countries to a life among the stars in the third, the world will change around them, but their destinies remain the same. It must play out as foretold.
