      From www.bethlehembooks.com:

      Thirteen-year-old Bani, though born in Jerusalem, has lived from infancy with
      his uncle in beautiful Susa, the city of the Persian King Artaxerxes. Now,
      his Uncle Nehemiah wants to leave his position of high honor as Cupbearer to the
      King to return to Jerusalem, a city in ruins and beset by every kind of
      trouble! Nehemiah's request of the king, permission to return to help his own
      people, could so easily--in an empire riddled with political intrigue--be
      misconstrued as treasonous scheming. Bani himself is given an unexpected part to play,
      the outcome of which is to forever change his life. Seen through the eyes of
      Bani, this novel dramatizes a turning-point of history, in 445 BC,
      when--through confrontation and daring risks--Judaism was re-established in the Promised
      Land, and purified for her unfolding mission.
