Summary (From the publisher):

The year is 1947: the last days of the British mandate in Palestine. Twelve-year-old Proffi, indoctrinated by his patriotic father and a zealous Bible teacher, dreams of dying heroically in battle, fighting for the creation of a Jewish state. But then he meets and befriends a kindly British soldier, who shares with Proffi a love of language and of the Bible. Accused of treason for the friendship, Proffi must learn the true nature of love and betrayal.
