Silent Schism: Brother Louis DeThomasis
On 7 December 1941, four brothers exploring a pit on a small island off the coast of Washington state make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Juan Cabrillo, Captain of US spy-ship Oregon, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, makes a shocking discovery of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition, and a curse that seems to have survived for over 500 years.

And the Angels Are Silent, by Yoseph Cohen Elran XVI. ´´Ezekiel went. Ezekiel is no longer here. Who can give me back the moment to change it? Those who can, allow me to give him one last hug and tell him how much I loved him. I´ve never said those words to him. But nothing can bring him back. A single moment. A touch. A liberating sigh just to get to the end of longing.´´ This is the story of Ezra, a child who tells the story of how his family, together with all the Jews of Baghdad, experienced riots and abuse, and the story of his younger brother, who was active in the Zionist underground. And the Angels Are Silent is a heroic chapter in the history of the Zionist struggle in the revival of the country. This fascinating, creative, and mesmerizing tale penetrates the individual soul and the souls of the nation and raises the question of divine intervention in human life.
