Rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewishvolumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding- an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals. A white hair- she begins to unlock the book’s mysteries, ushering in it exquisite and atmospheric past, from its salvation back to its creation though centuries of exile and war, and much, much more.
