Publisher Comments:

Holly Springs, Mississippi, 1862

Hannah Green can't believe what happens to her family after the war breaks out. First, her sister Joanna falls in love with a Union soldier — an enemy. Next, the same soldier tells Hannah and her family about General Grant's General Order #11, which commands all Jews to evacuate the territory for violating trade regulations. The Greens escape from Holly Springs just before their home is destroyed. They lose everything — even their slaves, when Lincoln declares them free.

Now, because she is Jewish, Hannah cannot go home to Mississippi — a Confederate state that's dear to her heart. Confusion sets in. Who is on her side, and whose side does she want to be on?
