This is a great story, which follows the life of a David Morgan, a man who has it all but isn't satisfied.
The book is essentially divided into two sections, the first follows a restless David as he searches for his calling until he eventually meets Deborah and joins the Israeli airforce. The second half follows the life of the two after they both undergo horrific injuries of war and how their love allows them to see past it.
I've read many Wilbur Smith books and although this isn't his best, it is definitely worth a read. The 4 star rating is in comparison to his other excellent books such as "River God" and "Eye of the Tiger" both of which I recommend.

I already own both a hard back and a soft back version, both personally signed by Wilbur Smith when he visited Beverely for a book signing session. I queued for over an hour for that and this from someone who has walked out of a supermarket rather than queue!!!
I am an avid Wilbur Smith fan and have read all his novels but was stunned by the depth of feeling in this story. I have read this story three times now, the last time on my iPad. If you have feelings, don't miss this one

I read this book a good few years ago and having just read it again still think it one of the best by Wilbur Smith and I have read most of his books now but prefer the earlier ones as this one.

I read this book when it first came out and now I have read it again and I like it more than ever. I think it is the best book that Wilbur Smith has written and I have read most of them..

Not as good as his previous books and nowhere in the same class as the Courtney, series but well worth a read.
