This is a fascinating story about the discovery of a Holy Book. Linked by the expertise of Hanna, a book conservator, it traces the origins by means of ‘clues’ – in fact, it is almost a “whodunit”!

From the Spanish Inquisition to the most recent war in Sarajevo, each individuals story is a cameo of life at that time, in that place.

Leaping centuries and countries with the ease of a Time Traveler, I was enthralled from the first page to the afterword, which explained exactly how much of the book was factual.
