In Everything Under the Heavens, 16-year old Johanna and her companions fled Cambaluc and her murderous stepmother to join her uncle’s westbound caravan on the Silk Road. At Terak Pass, where Mongol China ends and the scattered sheikdoms of the Persian empire begin, in an act of bloody betrayal Johanna was abducted and her foster brother Jaufre left for dead.
As By the Shores of the Middle Sea begins, Johanna is imprisoned in the Talikan harem while in Kabul far to the south Jaufre lies recovering from his near-fatal wound. Thousands of leagues to the west is Gaza, the port city where Johanna and Jaufre once meant to take ship for Venice and sanctuary with Johanna’s grandfather, Marco Polo.
Gaza and Venice: two cities on opposite shores of the Middle Sea that together open a door to the West. For Johanna and Jaufre, it’s a passage that will shape their destiny. But first? They have to get there.
