Beyond the Ghetto Gates, silver medalist for historical fiction in the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards, is set during Napoleon Bonaparte’s 1796-7 Italian campaign. As French troops free Ancona’s Jews from their repressive ghetto, two very different cultures collide. “A gripping peek into a bygone Italy and an astute look at the era’s prejudice.” (Kirkus Review)

When French troops, led by Napoleon Bonaparte, occupy the Italian port city of Ancona, freeing the city’s Jews from their repressive ghetto, two very different cultures collide.

Mirelle, a young Jewish maiden, must choose between her duty – an arranged marriage to a wealthy Jewish merchant – and her love for a dashing French Catholic soldier. Meanwhile, Francesca, a devout Catholic, must decide if she will honor her marriage vows to an abusive and murderous husband when he enmeshes her family in the theft of a miracle portrait of the Madonna.
