It is a war that has been fought throughout the centuries -- with the fate of Rome to Christendom to modern America at stake. Now, in the early days of World War II, Germany launches a successful invasion of England. But in secret, they are waging a war on an even larger scale. Trapped in the middle of it are Mary Wooler, an American historian caught in the Blitz and tangled up in strands of history; her son Gary, fighting a ruthless invader at civilization's frontier; and Ben Kamen, a Jewish refugee whose dreams place him at the heart of a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of the tapestry of time.
