(From the publisher):
Set against the background of the First Crusade, the novel follows the development of Martin as he learns to navigate the treacherous highways and byways of ancient Constantinople, the seat of Christianity in the Middle Ages.
After Martinís parents are killed by bandits, he gives up his Judaism and goes on a pilgrimage to find himself. Ultimately, as Martin evolves, he finds a place for himself, a place he never thought existed, a place that holds an age-old message: The Torah is the ultimate shield and sword in a world filled with barbarism; it is the lamp and the staff that leads every Jew to his people.
