This dud should be returned to dust...
As a general rule, I don't read books like this, but the subject of archeology in Israel hooked me, so I decided to try it. That was my first mistake. My second one was listening all the way to the end. I see that other reviewers were unable to finish it. That's what I should have done. It was good money after bad to both pay for it and listen to it.
This is a neurotic love story about a ditzy woman who has trouble distinguishing between reality and daydreams. The author repeats herself so often, I have to believe that she decided, having once written a good sentence, to use "cut & paste" in order to get more mileage out of it.
Next time, I'll wait until there are a few reviews!

enjoyed this archaeological adventure love story
I loved listening to the reading of this adventure set in the Holy Land that explored the relationships between different viewpoints: modern day and biblical times, men and women, prophets and those who love them, Jews, Muslims and Christians in the Holy Land, extremism and humane rationalism, passion-filled science and career-driven egotism.
It was a fun read; the writing is excellent and the acting of the reader beautifully makes real the personality of each character. This was a great book that I recommend to others.
