The Rescuer’s Path

Paula Friedman

“Exciting, physically vivid, and romantic”—Ursula K. Le Guin

When Malca Bernovski rides a horse off-trail in Nixon-era Washington DC, she discovers the wounded antiwar leader Gavin Hareen, prime suspect in the lethal bombing of an army truck. The budding love between the sheltered Malca, daughter of a Holocaust survivor, and the anguished, half-Syrian fugitive becomes a desperate struggle against injustice.

From the White House to the Rockies, from the Warsaw Ghetto to the post-9/11 search of the lovers’ birth child for her origins, this tale spans generations to delve urgent, timeless questions.
