"What would you say if you suddenly received a mysterious phone call from someone telling you that there weren’t forty-eight of Gutenberg’s books, but forty-nine?”
Hannah, a green-eyed beauty, finds herself in mid-life with no husband, no work, and no clear direction. Following a promising ad, she joins an enthusiastic professor on a perilous search for a lost copy of the Gutenberg Bible, last seen in the 16th century. To succeed where others failed, they must decipher ancient encrypted texts, enter monasteries and torture cellars - and avoid dangerous criminals who will stop at nothing to lay their hands on this priceless antiquity. But then they are forced to face an even greater challenge...
This suspenseful romance reveals an ancient love that drowned in blood 500 years ago, yet has endured to this day.
This was a well written book, filled with romance, and mystery. Hannah, and Mickey, go in search of a Lost Bible, and along the way they fall in love. Pretty basic love story, save for the inclusion of bad guys with guns, who kidnap Mickey. Never fear, for Mickey is found safe, and he and Hannah go forth in their relationship.
There are many references made to Jewish Holy Days, and many Hebrew words, that I didn't know, but came to learn. All in all, this was a good book, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
