About this title

Synopsis:

Dwight Lockwood, son of the Secretary of Defense, crafts his life under his father's shadow. Brought up in a world of family secrets and taboos, Dwight struggles to create an independent psychic life.

In college he falls in love with a beautiful young leftist, Sabrina Montenegro, and follows her to revolutionary Nicaragua, but is unable to make love.

Dwight ends up taking his father's path into public service, though as a peacemaker and diplomat, not a warrior. After an assignment in Moscow, he is posted to Guatemala, where Sabrina joins him. Finally they consummate their love. While Sabrina is working in a hospital in a village, Dwight learns that she has been "disappeared."

With Sabrina as his guiding angel, Dwight rises to the world's top diplomatic post. Inspired by the life of Dag Hammarskjold, the great U.N. Secretary General who lost his life in the Congo, To Enter Jerusalem tracks a man's destiny from his early wounding to a world career. Like Hammarskjold, Dwight has to decide to do his duty and to "enter Jerusalem", no matter what the risk.

About the Author:

An award-winning former U.S. foreign service officer, Craig Eisendrath has used a distinguished public-service career as an inspiration for fiction. His first novel, Crisis Game (Sunstone Press), takes readers inside a State Department war game between the U.S. and China. His plays The Disappeared and The Angel of History use the Salvadoran civil war and writer Walter Benjamin's fatal trip over the Pyrenees as backdrops. An adjunct professor at Temple University and a frequent radio talk-show guest as chairman of the Project for Nuclear Awareness, Eisendrath is the father of two grown children. He lives with his wife and four cats in Philadelphia.
