Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 1853, in Lafayette City, Louisiana, 11-year-old Elias Abrams loses his mother to yellow fever. Grief-stricken and alone, he becomes embroiled in the street life of New Orleans. After Elias is falsely accused of a crime, and in order to escape arrest, he enlists in the Third Louisiana Regiment, where 3,000 other Jews will ultimately fight for the Confederacy. Before long, though, Elias' past catches up with him, and he realizes that he must face his demons, or lose the woman he loves.

What the Critics Say

"At times ribald and always real, Melman creates a rich and authentic story." (Booklist)
"There is certainly no shortage of Civil War fiction; this is one of the better offerings." (Publishers Weekly)
