"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 ordered to murder his own uncle, who is plotting to assassinate President Lincoln. After this harrowing mission, Jacob is recruited to pursue another enemy agent, the daughter of a Virginia family friend. But this time, his assignment isn't to murder the spy, but to marry her"--From publisher's description.
