It's 1941 in wartime Egypt, and Cairo is playing host to a stream of refugees, spies and soldiers from around the world.

Jewish/Egyptian-born author Juliana Maio's enthralling historical novel sets a love story against the backdrop of an increasingly threatened Jewish community with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood. Passion, espionage, and shifting alliances converge in a time and place that sowed much of the turbulence in today's Middle East, which Maio will also address.

Here is a forshbite (that's Yiddish for hors d'oeuvres, one of the most-looked-up words on the Internet) of what's in store for Albuquerque.
