"David L. Robbins takes us from Hitler's camps through the British Mandate in Palestine, onto a rocky kibbutz, and into the dangerous Irgun. A profound and pivotal novel of the birth of the State of Israel, with all its adventures and tragedies on display. This is Robbins—historian, humanist, and master novelist—at the top of his game. An epic and timeless work."
– William S. Cohen, former U.S. Senator, Congressman, and Sec. of Defense
"Isaac's Beacon stands alongside the great fiction epics of Israel by Leon Uris and Herman Wouk. Robbins has written an instant classic."
– Jeff Shaara, New York Times Bestselling Historical Novelist
"Robbins has written his most ambitious book yet. A beautifully paced and utterly gripping powerhouse of a book. Extremely timely."
– Alex Kershaw, New York Times Bestselling Author of "The Liberator" and "The Longest Winter"
"Isaac's Beacon is a masterwork by a truly masterful writer."
– Tom Robbins, New York Times Bestselling Author of "Even Cowgirls Get The Blues" and "Still Life With Woodpecker"
"The best historical novels not only illuminate the past, they define it. Isaac's Beacon is one of those novels. Riveting, morally complex, fiercely intelligent, and as empathetic as it is sweeping in scope, Robbins guides readers through war-torn chaos to moments of rare, magnificent beauty. I feel like a better person for having read it."
– Dan Mayland, author of "The Doctor of Aleppo"
“A sweeping historical epic based on the actual events of Israel’s founding, with complex, flawed protagonists forced to find their way amidst the challenges and struggles of pre-state Israel’s most tumultuous years...portrayed with careful adherence to historical accuracy, a sign of the author’s meticulous research. Isaac’s Beacon relates the tale of Israel’s birth in bitterness and battle without sparing the reader any of the blood, sweat, and tears of the brave fighters who made it possible.”
