South of the Dead Sea, between Palestine and Jordan, nestles Petra and the Wadi Musa. That ancient “rose-red city, half as old as time,” lies deeply recessed in the Edomite mountains virtually impregnable against attack. It is a place of natural grandeur with rocky tomb-temples, rediscovered in the last century and doubtless the secret capital of a once prosperous Arabian trading empire. No wonder archaeologists have endured the hardships of the terrain to gaze upon its well preserved rock-hewn structures, and write scholarly papers about its mysteries.
Set against this background, Lost City is the story of a Jewish girl who leaves Europe at the end of the War but soon finds herself in need of the protection Petra affords. The plot leads on to the events described in the book of Revelation, and the events foretold in Scripture are seen through the eyes and lives of those who undergo its tribulations.
This prophetic fiction vividly recounts the pressures of Jewish persecution and the full shock of coming prophetic events.
