Item description for Jerusalems Heart (Zion Legacy V3) by Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene...

The third volume in the historical epic of modern Jerusalem continues the dramatic story of the holy city with the Israeli War for Independence in 1948. By the authors of Jerusalem Vigil and Thunder from Jerusalem. Reprint.

Publishers Description
It is May 23, 1948, and Jewish and Muslim forces have been in brutal conflict since the new State of Israel was proclaimed nine days ago. The Zion Gate is closed and the Haganah patriots, struggling to hold on to the Old City, are running out of supplies. Inside the city, the defenders' valiant spirit threatens to fail. The leading Haganah strategist, Moshe Sachar, is trapped in enemy territory and desperately races to reach his pregnant wife, Rachel, and the others who continue to fight for the Old City. Rachel's grandfather sees a prophecy of hope for Jerusalem, but can Moshe reach them before it's too late?
Jerusalem's Heart is a riveting novel of the battle to liberate the world's holiest city. Once again, Bodie and Brock Thoene combine an unsurpassed and timely blend of history, superb storytelling, and incredible drama that thrills from cover to cover.

More About Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene

Bodie Thoene BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 65 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.

Bodie began her writing career as a teen journalist for her local newspaper. Eventually her byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions (she’s best known as author of The Fall Guy) and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as “a writer with talent that captures the people and the times!” She has degrees in journalism and communications.

Brock has often been described by Bodie as “an essential half of this writing team.” With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.

Bodie and Brock have four grown children—Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie—and eight grandchildren. Their sons, Jake and Luke, are carrying on the Thoene family talent as the next generation of writers, and Luke produces the Thoene audiobooks.

Bodie and Brock divide their time between London, Hawaii, Central California, and Nevada.

Bodie Thoene currently resides in Glenbrook, in the state of Nevada. Bodie Thoene was born in 1951.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jerusalems Heart (Zion Legacy V3)?

Good, but long  Dec 31, 2005
I love the Thoenes, but I did not really like this series. While descriptive and interesting, the pace of the books are so slow (in time, not action--i.e, one book only takes place over only one or two days) that I did not make it all the way through the books. They are meant to be slow, but personally, I like to keep things moving. I would recommend Zion Covenant, Zion Chronicles, A.D. Chronicles, or, my favorites, the Galway Chronicles and the Shiloh Legacay over this series, especially if you are a first time reader of their usually wonderful work. (By the way, something I really like is that her series often overlap with characters. If you want to get to know all the characters, the order kind of goes like this: Zion Covenant and the Shiloh Legacy, then the Zion Chronicles, and then this series.)
You Hold your Breath for the Outcome  Sep 7, 2002
I love these series! I think they are even better than the "Left Behind" series, and I could not put those down! Again, the Thoenes do an excellent and captivating job of telling a great story and the history of the Israeal's beginnings at the same time. The characters' losses are your losses and their happiness is your happiness.

For those of you who have read the other series though, the beginning of "Prague Counterpoint" involves events and characters in this series during this same time frame at a crucial moment. However, the event in question is not mentioned in this book (involving Jacov and Rabbi Leibovitz), and I am wondering if anyone else noticed that. The events in "Jerusalem's Heart" makes one wonder how the characters could accomplish the event in the prologue of the former book, unless the reader is to assume it was possible.

Also, Jacob and Lori had no family members left in this series, but they both had younger brothers that escaped with Lori to England before WWII in "Warsaw Requiem". Do we ever find out what happened to them?

A Treat for Devoted Fans  Feb 4, 2002
The Thoenes are quite a team. The amount of research and detail that Brock's research brings to Bodie's talented writing is amazing. The combination is enthralling for history and fiction buffs. This book, like the others in the series, races from start to finish with tight plotting and razor-thin scenes. If anything, it can be overwhelming at times. Don't try to stretch this book out over a few weeks; you'll have difficulty keeping things straight. This story is meant to be swallowed and digested quickly.

Which is not to say that it's a fast-food diet. Bodie Thoene delivers rich metaphors here. From the Khamseen winds at the opening, to the Hurva at the heart of Jerusalem, this story strikes deep into the struggle for Israeli independence and the personal struggle for salvation through the Messiah. Without preaching, the Thoenes tell of powerful grace and love in the midst of horrific bloodshed. The message of valor and courage rings true in light of the terrors the Jews endured.

If you're a fan of the series, this book is a must. It'll go down quick and easy, and still leave you satisfied with the sustenance of good writing. (As a side-note, don't turn to the maps for help in deciphering the story...some of the major settings aren't even listed, such as Latrun.) With the secrets still waiting to be revealed at the end of this story, I'm anxious to plunge into the next, "The Jerusalem Scrolls."

Living Bravely  Nov 6, 2001
I finished this book the same day the film "Uprising" premiered, and the similarities are striking. Once again, the Jews are outgunned, outmanned, and hungry. And once again, the Thoenes do honor to Jewish heritage and record little known stories--like that of the Jewish struggle in Warsaw--for a legacy of bravery.

In this, book #3 of the series, the Jewish defenders try to hold the Old City, while the Jewish army tries desperately to give aid. It's classic Thoene, great action and passion, great writing, great material.

The journey is everything. That's the shout from Warsaw, and that's the shout from this book. What stays with me are the words of a woman under siege in Jerusalem..."Life is the hardest thing...that's where real courage is. Not in dying bravely, but in living bravely."

The Thoenes Are Back  Jun 3, 2001
Once upon a time, Bodie Thoene was my favorite fiction writer. After the publication of Shiloh Autumn, however, I found her subsequent books to be a bit dry and uninspiring. Even the first two books in this series, though good, lacked the passion and eloquence of the earlier Thoene writings. In Jerusalem's Heart, though, it would seem that the Thoenes of the Zion Chronicles, Zion Covenant, and Shiloh Autumn are back with us. This new book captures all the action, drama, spiritual depth, and character development of the authors' earlier novels. A wonderfully written and powerfully moving story, Jerusalem's Heart is a good read for anyone interested in middle east politics, good fiction, or vintage Thoene writing.
