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.
"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. 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
