Jewish Holocaust survivors Joseph & Ester Gale have lost most of their family members to the infamous gas chambers of Auschwitz and Treblinka, yet they continue to defy death for the dream of a Jewish State.
Palestinian refugees George and Mary Antoun are forced to flee their home in Haifa to raise their only child in the squalor of Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. Former S.S. officer Friedrich Kleist and his wife Eva survive Germany's bitter loss in World War II only to have the long shadow of their Nazi past return to haunt them and their beautiful daughter, Christine.

The lives of these three families have been shattered by the maelstrom of war. However, Ester's Child reveals the ability of love to overturn the claims of war and blood. In this spellbinding novel, Jean Sasson brings together a striking cast of characters, revealing deep layers and varieties of love and hate seldom seen in popular fiction.
