Description


Ali's Dream is the story of Ali, an eleven-year-old boy living in 'Akka (present-day Israel) in 1912, whose life becomes a quest for the meaning of a mysterious dream. This dream leads him to carefully study his Baha'i heritage, and sets him on a course to discover his own spiritual destiny. Author John S. Hatcher has woven together scenes and fascinating details of the history of the Baha'i Faith-stories of heroism and heartrending drama-drawing from them universal truths about sacrifice, suffering, and the spiritual qualities required in growing up. Ali's Dream is an adventure into which readers may enter with Ali to seek those qualities and ideals that result from commitment to a cause greater than themselves. It will give readers a relatable and personal window into a fascinating piece of history, as well as a coming-of-age story about what it means to grow up and find one's place within one's cultural heritage.
