- In Bukhara, a country where babies are kidnapped all the time, an infant boy, one of a pair of twins, disappears one day. His father, Mr. Boruchov, doesn't even try to get him back, because he thinks there's no chance of finding him. He assumes the boy has been taken to Pakistan or Uzbekistan. The family has no idea that this time, the Muslim kidnappers sold their captive to a wealthy Russian, the childless Boris.
- Meanwhile, the kidnapped baby is mysteriously replaced by another child. The kidnapping remains a secret, and Mr. Boruchov raises the both boys as his own. Avner loves learning Torah, while Yehuda is attracted to business. Both boys are bright, and both give nachas to their parents. But when the Bolsheviks take over the Russian Empire, the Boruchov family faces hard times.
- In Russia, an intelligent boy named Igor wants justice for the poor, and he believes the Bolshevik Revolution is the way to share the country's wealth equally among all the people. He joins the Bolsheviks, and he is determined to track down every rich family that has gone into hiding - especially the well-known Boruchovs. Igor finally succeeds in tracking them down - but he doesn't find what he was looking for. Not at all. Ad his friends, it turns out, aren't who he thought they were...
- Read about Avner, Yehuda, and Igor, the Bolshevik soldier in this riveting tale, and learn about true Jewish courage. Happy reading!
