In her fifth novel, Horn, a two-time winner of the National Jewish look Award, draws on Jewish history and mysticism for a powerful and moving exploration of what it would mean to be immortal. The narrative unfolds over 2,000 years. Horn follows Rachel from Roman-occupied Jerusalem, where she and her first love, Elazar, make a fateful bargain to save their son by sacrificing their own deaths, to 2018, when everyone but Rachel looks to technology to make death obsolete.
