About the Book
About the Book
This is an adventure story that takes place in Iraq in 1980. After the death of his mother, Tom O'Hara has no choice but to leave his Tampa school and friends and go with his father on a posting to Iraq. There, Tom meets his friend Mikhail and accompanies him and his family to the north for Easter. As they travel, the possibility of war between Iran and Iraq grows so dangerous that John, Tom's father, comes north to get him so he can be evacuated back to the U.S. As he arrives, John is kidnapped by Iranian terrorists fleeing the country. Because the Iraqis are too busy preparing for war to look for John, Tom and Mikhail combine the "Can Do" of Americans with the "God willing" of the Iraqi's to rescue Tom's father. Along the way, they are aided by Alexander the Great and his friend Hephaestion, among many others, both living and time-traveling. The boys find commonality in their love of history and admiration for Alexander and their determination to bring John O'Hara home.
