Author Dan Sofer Finds Love—and Magic—in East Jerusalem.

Share Article

New thriller novel explores ancient traditions about soul mates and the mystical nature of love.

Is it possible to make someone fall in love? Does true love even exist? What are soul mates?

Author Dan Sofer gleans insights into these age-old questions from Jewish lore and legend and weaves them into a fast-paced adventure set in modern-day Jerusalem.

"A Love and Beyond" features a mysterious crime, a ruthless secret society, and a desperate bachelor.

British immigrant Dave Schwarz has little luck with love until he stumbles upon the mystical key to a woman's heart—deep within Arab East Jerusalem. The discovery draws him into a web of baffling crimes, archaeological enigmas, and religious conspiracies. The story leads to undiscovered ruins, the secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and dark forces that itch to trigger the End of Days.

So what is the truth about soul mates? Sofer answers with a quote from his book: “Nothing in life or love slips easily into the little box of our expectations.”

Dan Sofer was born in South Africa in 1976. He immigrated to Israel in 2001. Dan is happily married and, when not writing, he creates software for large corporations.
