Publisher's Summary

With the coming of dawn is the coming of death for a captured English officer in British-controlled Palestine. Elisha, a young Israeli freedom fighter, is his executioner. Ordered to kill the officer in reprisal for Britain's execution of a Jewish prisoner, Elisha thinks about his past, a sorrowful memory of the nightmare of Nazi death camps. As the only surviving member of his family, he dreamt of a wonderful future in his promised homeland. But instead, he finds himself closer to committing heartless murder with the approach of daylight. Dawn presents a haunting glimpse into the soul of one man and a budding nation.

Better that DAY - but not as good as NIGHT.

This was a book I purchased because I liked his first book NIGHT. This is nothing like NIGHT - has a different character - the story line is OK - but not what NIGHT was.... It's a short read - and George Guidall is spectacular as always..

An interesting, short novel.

An interesting, short read/listen, from the perspective of a soon to be executioner. The inner struggle that took place within Elijah kept you on the edge throughout. I love Elie Wiesel's writing and George Guidall does a superb job narrating.
