Partly fact, partly fiction, partly story-telling and partly history, this is the story of Sarah Aaronsohn, head of a British spy ring during World War I, living in a Jewish village of Zichron in what was then Palestine in 1917. It is a saga of betrayal, ruined lives, deception, and Jewish-Arab life in the first half of the 20th century told by Halkin, a well-known Israeli author, critic and translator.
