Only their lone outworld companion can recognize the place as his own home world and the era as one that has been deliberately shrouded in mystery by his land's mainstream church. The questors must discover how and why magic, once used commonly in everyday life, came to be banned during this time period and must rescue one of the outworld knight's own forebears by reassembling a fabulous tapestry, the physical component of the spell that allowed her capture.

Heritage of Light: The Spiritual Destiny of America by Janet A. Khan
Heritage of Light is an accessible descirption of the American Baha'i community and a penetrating look at the spiritual destiny of America. This exploration traces the historical and spiritual connections that link the American Baha'is with the early Baha'is of Iran, who displayed an unparalleled staunchness of faith and heroism in the face of unspeakable brutal persecution and oppression. The author's examination of the writings of the Baha'i Faith, along with extensive historical and archival records, demonstrates the unique role assigned to the American Baha'is and to the American nation as a whole in the development of a unified global society and the eventual inauguration of a world civilization.
Janet A. Khan is a member of the Research Department at the Baha'i World Center in Haifa, Israel, the international headquarters of the religion. She has written two books for Baha'i Publishing and has held academic positions at the University of Michigan and the University of Queensland, Australia. She lives in Israel.
