The women's suffrage movement is in full swing in 1912 Portland, Oregon--the last holdout state on the West Coast. Miriam desperately wants to work at her father's printing shop, but when he refuses she decides to dedicate herself to the suffrage movement, demanding rights for women and a different life for herself.
About the Author
Ruth Tenzer Feldman is the author of numerous historical and political nonfiction books for children and young adults, including "The Fall of Constantinople," "Thurgood Marshall," "Don't Whistle in School: The History of America's Public Schools," and" How Congress Works." She holds degrees in both law and international relations, and has spent time working as a legislative attorney for the U.S. Department of Education. Ruth is an active member of local Jewish organizations and historical societies. She has spent countless hours researching Jewish history, women's suffrage, and early twentieth century printing techniques to bring historical accuracy to "Blue Thread," her first young adult novel.
"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
