As the Chinese and the army of the North sweep south during the Korean War, an old peasant farm and his wife flee their village across the bleak, bombed-out landscape. They come upon a boy in a ditch who is wounded and unconscious; the woman refuses to leave the boy behind. Angry and bewildered, the man waits for the boy to die, and when the boy does not die, the man begins to believe that the boy possess a magic upon which all their lives depend.

"Potok writes powerfully about the sufferings of innocent people caught in the cross-fire of a war they cannot begin to understand.... Humanity and compassion for his characters leap from every page."--San Francisco Chronicle
