When a German man moves in next door to ninety-year-old Sarah Davis in Arlington, Virginia, she knows it's time to finally do something about the contents she's kept safely hidden for seventy years in an old leather satchel-the land deeds to valuable property the Nazis confiscated in 1939.
But it's not simply a matter of legal hurdles Sarah has to face. By right, the property belongs to the original Jewish landowners, the birth parents of Sarah's adopted child, Maria-a secret she missed the opportunity to reveal to her daughter before she died tragically in 1988. So now, the land belongs to Maria's daughter, Rachel, who has no inkling as to her Jewish heritage, let alone any German inheritance.
In Helen K. Jordan's exciting sequel to The Journal, Sarah enlists the help of young lawyer William Handel, who once again leads the way through German history and legal mazes, this time assisting Rachel as she attempts to reclaim her property and rediscover herself. An inspiring tale of family, a surprising story of love, and an insightful account of how God works, The Leather Satchel takes you on an adventure you won't soon forget.
