DNA Test Unlocks a Family Mystery

Sephardic Jew Mathilda Nissim watches in horror as the Germans invade her beloved city of Salonika, Greece. What angers her most is the lack of resistance her people put up to their captors. In secret and at great risk to her life, she continues to publish her newspaper, calling her people to action. She doesn’t trust God to help them. When she and her husband find out they are expecting a child, Mathilda may have to resort to desperate measures to ensure her daughter’s survival.

Three generations later, college student Riley Payson and her cousin take a popular DNA test only to discover they don’t share any common ancestors. In fact, the test shows Riley is a Sephardic Jew from Greece. This revelation shakes Riley’s tenuous faith and sends her on a journey to discover what happened to her great-grandmother and how all this relates to her faith and her life today.



What I Would Tell You Excerpt 5
Asher stroked her cheek. “How did I manage to marry someone so wise and brave?”
“You will let me keep writing then?”
He gave a single nod. That was enough for her. “I will concede that I can’t continue to publish in the open as I have, butwe don’t have to destroy everything. We can hide it. Take it out only at night. We have to become clandestine.”
Asher gave a deep, long sigh. “Then I’ll help you, come what may. But I’ll fret about this and lose sleep. I’m so afraid for your safety. What would become of me if I lost you?”
“Let’s not worry about what may or may not happen, things that are out of our control. Right now, we have to find a hiding place for everything.”
Asher nodded, a dark lock of hair falling over his high forehead. She itched to reach out and stroke it into place, butthere was no time for that. As Salonika was an important port city, the Germans would arrive here sooner rather than later.
Together, which was how they worked best, they searched for a spot to hide her equipment. She entered the bedroom, Asher following. A big bed covered with a red chenille spread in the middle of the room and a large wardrobe in the corner engulfed the small space.
Asher motioned for her. “In here. This is the perfect spot.” He went to the wardrobe and pushed aside a few dresses andsome of his slacks.
