Jerusalem Spring


Everything was going according to plan.  Scott had a steady job as the prison warden in a sleepy little town in the South.  He and his wife were planning to have a baby soon.  He was modernizing the prison, gaining notice from his superiors, and rising through the ranks thanks to the reliability of his informant, Joe.

But one day Scott wakes up to find his world crumbling around him.  Forced to reevaluate his life, Scott decides to stand up for what he believes in and embarks on a path toward redemption.  He knows things are about to change.  What he doesn’t realize is that nothing will ever be the same again.

See what people are saying about the book …

“The book gets you hooked from the first line … Fares Aoun does an excellent job making his characters alive … He is there with them in their cells and in their bedrooms, holding a tin of water to their lips or wiping tears from their faces. He is there to assure them that the world will hear their pleading. He simply takes ordinary people from everyday life and makes them eternal.”  -- Nidale El Achkar
