NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ● From the bestselling author of The Holocaust, a riveting novel offering a wealth of unforgettable lessons from one of the greatest teachers who ever lived
1948. India, British troops having just left its shores, is in turmoil. So is newly founded Israel. Death tolls are rising. The world is holding its breath.
A young writer from the Holy Land decides to travel to India and meet Mahatma Gandhi, asking for the 78-year-old sage's advice.
Gandhi finds solace in speaking to the young stranger. His advice to the young man to seek forgiveness, choose love over fear, and to search for peace inside first, echo ever so loudly as Gandhi is shot by an assassin. The young man goes back to the Holy Land to face the bloodshed, and to choose hope against all odds as he joins hands with local Arabs in founding the first village for both Arabs and Jews, ""Oasis of Peace.""
BASED ON A TRUE STORY, with an appendix including authentic documents.
