From Library Journal:

In 70 A.D., when Roman forces sack Jerusalem, the scribe Abraham flees the city carrying little more than the scroll that documents his family history. For the next 19 centuries, one member of each new generation inherits this scroll along with the admonition that the record must be kept up to date. From Alexandria to Toledo, from Strasbourg to the Warsaw ghetto, Halter provides a moving account of Jews in exile. Abraham's descendants continue to work as scribes and eventually as printers. Since they are loyal to the word, it serves as their defense against oppression and solace in time of pain. This novel, much celebrated in Europe, has been aptly compared to Roots since it is based on records of the Halter family dating back to 1480 and on detailed historical research for the earlier centuries.
