A gripping epic about the great moral struggles of the Civil War

How is tonight different from all other nights? For Jacob Rappaport, a Jewish soldier in the Union army, it is a question his commanders have answered for him: on Passover in 1862, he is ordered to murder his own uncle, who is plotting to assassinate President Lincoln.

After that night, will Jacob ever speak for himself? The answer comes when his commanders send him on another mission—this time not to murder a spy but to marry one.

A compelling novel rich with romance and the history of America (North and South), this is a book only Dara Horn could have written. Full of insight and surprise, layered with meaning, it is a brilliant parable of the moral divide that still haunts us: between those who value family first and those who are dedicated, at any cost, to social and racial justice for all.

    " Easy to read and from a different time period than I usually read about, especially for a Jewish protagonist. "

    " Really slow start -- I wasn't sure that I was going to like it and/or finish it, but midway through I couldn't put it down. The ending was a little hokey, but overall, it's an interesting read. "
