I like this so far. The story is a great idea--Hanna is restoring an ancient passover haggadah, and as she finds different mysterious things in the book, the story jumps back to the time that the certain thing happened to the book. For instance, when she finds a wine and blood stain, the story jumps back to Venice and to a priest and a rabbi go into a bar...just kidding, they don't go into a bar, but they are connected during the Inquisition. So if that sounds interesting to you, you may like this book. The dialogue isn't the best.
