Sepphoris, Israel, 1995: Henry and Alice Cross, Harvard scholars leading an archaeological dig, discover clay tablets recording a family’s epic history from Moses through Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Tablets raise serious questions about the foundations of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Was Moses a servant of God or a charlatan? What did Jesus want? What were Mary’s secrets? The discovery holds many answers. Henry and Alice call their find the Jesus Tablets.
News of the discovery leads to behind-the -scenes conflicts among world powers, some willing to kill either to suppress or reveal the evidence. The American President, the Israeli Prime Minister, the Pope, a Hamas commander, Jesuits, and agents with unknown allegiances all scheme to control the Tablets. Henry and Alice’s struggle to protect what they’ve unearthed takes them from Israel to Washington, D.C. as they survive shocking murders of innocent friends. Will they and the Tablets survive? How important is the truth? Will a Machiavellian solution to conflict in the Middle East actually work? You are invited to enter the complex labyrinth of Remarkable Silence.
5-Star Amazon Reviews
“I enjoyed this book so much and feel that it’s premise is so very timely. The twists and turns and skillful weaving of society and religion and politics almost makes us forget this is a novel.”
“Great Read!!! Karen Wills keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout! Some may be offended with the subject matter, but there is food for thought here. I found it amazing to what ends organizations & people will go to suppress the truth (although this is a novel, not an exposition).”
The author of two books for young adults, Karen Wills practiced law and taught English at the college level. She also taught Lakota teens at an alternative school, and, most recently, Inupiaq Eskimo children in the remote village of Wales, Alaska. She has the distinction of experiencing a personal encounter with a polar bear. Her work has appeared in numerous publications. She has grown children and lives with her husband near Glacier National Park in Montana.Her first novel, Remarkable Silence, was inspired by the need now, as never before, for religious tolerance.
