Dear Librarians,

Did you know that Napoleon had a Jewish nickname? He earned it during his 1796-7 campaign through Italy when he liberated the Jews from their centuries-old incarceration in the ghettos. Based on this little-known slice of Italian Jewish history, BEYOND THE GHETTO GATES tells the story of two women: Jewish Mirelle, torn between love for a dashing French soldier and duty to her faith and family; and Francesca, tied by her Catholic belief to an abusive, murderous husband. 

PS. Napoleon's Jewish nickname? It plays on his last name: Helek Tov, a Good Part (Bonaparte).
