How is tonight different from all other nights? For Jacob Rappaport, a Jewish soldier in the Union army during the Civil War, it is a question his commanders have already answered for him; on Passover, 1862, he is sent to New Orleans and ordered to murder his own uncle—a cousin of confederate leader Judah Benjamin. Jacob is then recruited to pursue another enemy agent. But this time, his assignment isn’t to murder the spy, but to marry her. Dara Horn was named one of Granta’s “Best Young American Novelists” in 2007 and O-LMD-Dara Hornreceived the National Jewish Book Award for her first two novels, In the Image and The World to Come.

“A tale of adventure...betrayal and love, dignity and loss, that takes the breath away and makes the heart pound.” — Anne Roiphe
