Reviews

"Hooray for Miriam, just the kind of young woman I like--curious, compassionate, intelligent, independent, and determined. Her story is told in Blue Thread, a wonderfully written novel about her struggle to be herself, to be honest, and to be just. In an intriguing blend of fantasy and historical fiction, Miriam finds the battles of the past informing her present and inspiring her future. I cheered her efforts, her courage, and her rewards. And so will you." --Karen Cushman, author of The Midwife's Apprentice "Like Miriam herself, Blue Thread interweaves elements of faith, history, and politics, but what I loved most about this young adult novel was the even more powerful element of family. From the dominant conflict and connection between Miriam and her father to the more fantastical tie between the women of the Josefsohn family, Ruth Tenzer Feldman does a beautiful job peering into the bonds that bring us together, tear us apart, and allow us to travel beyond ourselves." --Anne Osterlund Swan, author of Academy 7 "Hooray for Miriam, just the kind of young woman I like curious, compassionate, intelligent, independent, and determined.

Anne Osterlund Swan, author of "Academy 7"" "Miriam's journey in "Blue Thread" is both magical and inspiring. No doubt, like the blue thread itself, her story will be passed down from mothers to daughters--and if there is any justice, from fathers to sons as well." --David Michael Slater, author of the "Sacred Books" series
