"This Magnificent Dappled Sea" is a novel about two strangers-generations and oceans apart. Luca Taviano, a nine-year old boy from a small Italian village, is diagnosed with leukemia. His only hope for survival is a bone marrow transplant from a match three thousand miles away in the form of a most unlikely donor: Joseph Neiman, a rabbi in Brooklyn. As Luca's nurse risks her career and races against time to help save him, she uncovers terrible secrets from World War II-secrets that reveal how a Catholic child could have Jewish genes.
Following the fictional story of This Magnificent Dappled Sea, The Gift of Life will present a unique and emotional introduction of a transplant recipient to his hero- his blood stem cell donor for the very first time!
