Baker & Taylor
In 1861, fleeing a murder charge in New Orleans, twenty-year-old Elias Abrams joins the Confederate Army, where he witnesses the horrors of war and falls in love with Nora Bloom, a young Jewish woman encouraged by her rabbi to correspond with a soldier.

Blackwell North Amer
For Elias, the brutality of life at the front is soon eased in the form of a morale-boosting letter blindly sent by young Nora Bloom, a proud devotee to the Cause, at her rabbi's behest. Although theirs quickly develops into a tender epistolary courtship, Elias' violent past catches up with him before long, and he realizes, in his newfound quest for faith and familial atonement, that he must return to New Orleans to face his demons or risk losing the woman he has grown to love.
