Présentation de l'éditeur

Evil circles closer, threatening even those who survived the Holocaust.
It’s November 29, 1947. The streets of Jerusalem ring with celebration as the British Mandate of Palestine is carved into Arab and Jewish states. Politicians promise peace, but those who remember the prophecies know the truth.

When photojournalist Ellie Warne snaps pictures of some ancient scrolls, she unwittingly becomes the target of a sinister plan. Whom can she trust? David Meyer, a decorated American war pilot, who seems more comfortable among the stars than on earth with her? Or the scholarly Jew, Moshe Sachar, who hides from commitment behind his studies but says he loves her?

As everything she believes is challenged, Ellie must decide whether to risk her life—and her heart—for a people she has just met.

Book Description

Out of the ashes of the Holocaust, a magnificent novel of indomitable courage and hope.

Ellie, a young American photojournalist, finds herself in the Jerusalem of 1947. She unwittingly becomes a pawn in a political chess game when she photographs some ancient scrolls discovered by Bedouins. David seems to love her dearly, but Moshe has a purpose and commitment in life that intrigues her more than she can say. Through it all, Ellie discovers a people, a spirit and a person who profoundly change the direction of her life.

This first book in THE ZION CHRONICLES vividly portrays the intense struggle of the Jewish people in the aftermath of the Holocaust and the forces, within and without, which engulf the Middle East in conflict and controversy even today.

Ayant acheté les quatre tomes suivants de cette série, il me manquait le premier tome introuvable en français. Je l'ai donc pris en anglais dans sa version numérique. Je n'avais jamais lu un livre en anglais de ma vie. Armée de mon dictionnaire, je me suis lancée et j'ai été emportée par ce récit et j'ai abandonné peu à peu le dictionnaire tant l'écriture est fluide. Je suis ravie de cette lecture mais contente d'être arrivée au bout pour commencer le tome 2 en français...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Realistic and yet, it's fiction... 11 octobre 2000
Par Laura Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Gates of Zion is a wonderfully written book about one young lady's choices during post World War II, in the setting of Jerusalem. Throughout the book she must decide whether or not she wants to involve herself in politics that are much larger than the comfortable and sheltered world to which she has grown accustomed. Through her choices, she learns more about herself and those around her, including the two men between whose love she must decide.
This book is the first in a series titled The Zion Chronicles. Bodie Thoene wrote this series first and then later wrote a series to precede this called The Zion Covenant. I would rate the first series a full five stars. All were excellently written. I found them to be very well developed and descriptive. I found The Gates of Zion to be no exception to this style of writing. Bodie Thoene did a superb job of painting scenes for my imagination to witness. The level of description in all of her books creates a separate world through which I am able to watch her characters live their lives.
I rate this book at four stars solely based upon a fault of my own. Not being very well informed as to post WWII history, I found that this book, The Gates of Zion, was slightly more difficult to get into than those of the first series. It took me a while to get fully absorbed in it. However, once I started to understand a little better the events taking place, I could hardly put the book down.
I found the book to always have me wanting to know more. It was very exciting in the way that I was constantly being surprised. It was not a predictable book in the least. I had to read it to find out what the end results would be. If there was any guessing on my part it was only speculation as to what new twist the author was going to send my way next. I found this to keep me on my toes and kept my interest in the book. I just had to know what was going to happen, and therefore found it difficult to put away when my time would not allow for reading.
I also found this book to be inspirational. The faith in God the characters exhibit in their daily lives and when in the face of adversity is very encouraging. I know that this book is fiction, and yet the faith and trust they show in God is something that I believe anyone can obtain. It is not unrealistic in that the characters have a faith of which no one would be capable. It is presented in such a way that it makes you forget that the book is indeed fiction.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an exciting book. It has the ability to keep one on the edge of their seat wanting to know more. I know this was defenately the case for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 5 stars isn't enough. I was captivated!!! 6 mai 1999
Par Megan Villa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Never have I come across a better author. Bodie Theone (tay-nee) is truly amazing. These books are full of drama. It's like the characters became my friends. When I finished the series, It felt as though I lost some good friends. I really don't know if I could be as entertained, enlightened and fulfilled by reading anything else after reading this series. Originally I was checking the series out one at a time from the library. But when I realized I'd finally found something I couldn't put down, I figured I better buy the whole series. I have never bought books before, because I've never found anything worthy of being read more than once. I was just so compelled and I want to share her writings with all my friends and family. She's spectacular. So is anything written by her husband Brock, who helps her co-write everything. It's almost like watching a movie, because there are so many plots intertwined. I was shocked to read the epilogue in RETURN TO ZION. You'll have to find out for yourself. Just don't start reading in the middle of the series. If I could never read another authors works but one it would be the Theone's. - Megan Villa

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Has It All 14 octobre 2001
Par genebodene - Publié sur Amazon.com
Action, intrigue, romance! This book has it all. Ellie Warne, a young American photographer suddenly finds herself thrust into the role of photojournalist for "Life" magazine, covering the turmoil between the Jews, Arabs and British in 1947 Palestine.Throw in the mix an assortment of characters, including the brave Moshe and David, who vie for Ellie's attention, as well as Rachel, a beautiful Jewess who had been forced into prostitution in Auschwitz during World War II and you have people you can be interested in. Bodie Thoene can excellently craft a novel and turn a phrase and she definitely has done it in this book!

I picked the first one up at my local library, and had to have more. If you like adventure, a little romance, and great historical fiction, this is it. It grabs your attention, immerses you in the characters, and lights a sympathy for the events. Get the whole series, they're great!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I haven't finished yet! 15 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
So far, this is a wonderful book. Especially if you have read the Zion Covenent series. Unfortunately, everyone in my family has, and we just got the Zion Chronicles. Needless to say, there's been a little competition. If someone puts the book down and goes to the bathroom or to find something to eat, they come back and it's been stolen! Beware of family when reading a really good book. Those whom you love the dearest and the best can be downright mean when it comes to the next book in a series! I guess there's not much I can say about the book, seeing I haven't gotten a hold of it for very long, but the competition in my family can speak for itself. Buy this book! In fact, buy enough for everyone in your family, or you're in for trouble
