People of the Book 
by
Geraldine Brooks


From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of March, the journey of  a rare manuscript through centuries of exile and war. Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is a novel of sweeping historical grandeur. This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in fiftheenth-century Spain. When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of timy artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding only begin to unlcok its deep mystries and unexpectedly plunge Hanna into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics.
