Abigail MacLeod leaves her chaotic life and failing marriage and flies to Israel to embark on a difficult and tumultuous search for peace and faith.

Publishers Description
A Powerful Story Set Against the Backdrop of Today's Israel
Nothing in Abigail MacLeod's life as a wife, a mother, and a teacher has prepared her for what she will experience during her summer in Israel. At forty-two, her life is in chaos, even before she leaves home--her marriage is dissolving before her very eyes, her faith is in shambles. This pilgrimage to Israel was supposed to be a new beginning fr her. But by the end of the first day, she is forced to board an Israeli jetliner in spit of a bomb threat, and watches helplessly as a kind, fatherly gentleman she befriended on the plane dies in her arms.
This is a summer Abby will spend learning about archaeology, delving into the past. And it's a summer that will change her life in ways she never imagined.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wings of Refuge?

Three stories artfully woven together like a mosaic  Jan 22, 2007
This novel has an amazing depth of history and spiritual insight that cannot be fully comprehended with one reading. Whether it is the story of Abby an American Schoolteacher, Hannah an Israeli archaeologist, or Leah a new testament servant girl and Yeshua believer, the theme is very clear- God sent his son to forgive everyone of their sins. However, we too must forgive in order to receive this wonderful gift.
The book is filled with memorable quotes. My favorite being, "We are those individual stones in God's design. . . The master artist cuts us and shapes us so that we each fit into place."
Rings an important message  Feb 21, 2006
This is an captivating book in that it manages to really convey the problems of the Middles East within its pages. That also makes it a hard book at times - it is definitely depressing. While the ending shows promise for Abby, she is the only one. Hannah, Ari, Rachel, Leah, Ben...its tragedy upon tragedy. Which unfortunately is true of the Middle East, so I think it is an important message for us to hear. There is also an important message of faith and forgiveness in this book and helps us to see the layers of problems we have built in society - and why peace in the Middle East is such a distant dream.
With A Heart Of Forgiveness  Mar 23, 2005
What a powerful novel that weaves the Israeli/Palestine conflict and the lives that are affected by terrorism. Abigail MacLeod needed time to think away from her husband and children so she joined an archaeology team on a dig in Israel. Before she can even leave the airport, a man whom she just met is murdered. The suspense, as the murder investigation continues, rap around the archaeology team of Dr Hannah Rahov and son-in-law Dr Ari Bazak. Through a bizarre set of events, Abby learns what is true forgiveness. Without forgiveness, the heart can find no peace and contentment. Hannah & Ari had to learn the same lessons as they live in a terror torn country where they lost loved ones. This book is a treasured addition to my library collection.
A book with many stories  Jun 26, 2002
This is the story of Abby's summer in Israel at an archealogical dig. This is also the story of Leah, one of the early Christians; the story of Hannah, an archealogist; and the story of Ari & Rachel, Hannah's daughter. These are women with brave love stories and historical elements that withstand the test of time.

Abby has just been rocked by the betrayal of her husband's infidelity. She tries to escape from it all by going to Israel. There she meets Hannah and Ari. But as in everything, not all is as it seems.

Ms. Austin weaves the historical stories throughout the narrative very well. The reader is pulled into every story. I found myself tearing up at various points because the stories were so moving.

This is a novel about forgiveness and the lesson that you can't run from your pain--you have to face it. And the characters in the story face their own pain and learn to live again.

Life enriching  Jun 4, 2001
The story pulls you into the holy land and what it would actually be like to go on a dig. It has todays' people with todays' problems, and compares it to ancient times, and we see how similar each generation is. It explains how Jesus became the ulitmate sacrifice for all the world. I ended up falling in love with each of the characters. It has a wonderful ending.
