(From the publisher):
To rendezvous with her archeologist fiancÚ in Jordan, Barbara Vaughn must first pass through the Mandelbaum Gate -- which divides strife-torn Jerusalem. A half-Jewish convert to Catholicism, an Englishwoman of strong and stubborn convictions, Barbara will not be dissuaded from her ill-timed pilgrimage despite a very real threat of bodily harm and the fearful admonishments of staid British diplopmat Freddy Hamilton.
