These were difficult years when the Master was imprisoned in the city of Akka. His every move subject to misrepresentation by the Arch-breaker of the Covenant and his associates, and even His life in danger.

At the same time the period saw the victories of the construction fo the Shrine of the Bab and the House of Worship in Ishqabad, and the rise of the Cause of Baha u llah in the West.This important historical record, published in 1952 on the instructions of Shoghi Effendi, has been described as pre-eminent among those works dealing with the history of Covenant-breaking:.

At the same time it chronicles the daily life in Akka of many eminent early Western Bahais including Thomas Breakwell, Hippolyte Dreyfus, Lua Getsinger and Laura Barney, the compiler of Some Answered Questions.Over those nine years Jinab-i-Khan (the title by which Dr. Youness Afroukhteh was honoured by Abdul-Baha) served the Master in Akka as secretary, translator, envoy and physician. His account of some of the most significant events of the period, his graphic and stirring pen-portraits of Abdul-Baha, and the description of his own emotions - all expressed in a lively and at times mischievous language of humour and wit - make this volume uniquely memorable.
