|Leah, the Forsaken
by Augustin Daly
A Jewish refugee, forbidden by law to pass the night in an Austrian town, finds love in the heart of a Christian citizen. But, when a self-serving impostor accuses her of infidelity, her champion becomes her most zealous persecutor. Yet by braving starvation, murder, banishment, and a fiery curse, the melodramatic hearts of this timely tale find a grace all their own.
