About the Author

Born on the South Shore of Boston, Massachusetts, Mary Glickman studied at the Université de Lyon and Boston University. While she was raised in a strict Irish-Polish Catholic family, from an early age Glickman felt an affinity toward Judaism and converted to the faith in her late twenties. She now lives in Seabrook Island, South Carolina, with her husband, Stephen. Glickman is the author of Home in the Morning; One More River, a National Jewish Book Award Finalist in Fiction; and Marching to Zion.An Undisturbed Peace is her fourth novel.

Reviews

"This moving novel . . . handled with credibility by the talented Glickman . . . is sustained by the rich period detail and by strong and fully realized characters." --Booklist

"Coincidence or not, the publication of Marching to Zion on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of The March on Washington is a powerful reminder of the discrimi-nation and unspeakable hardships African Americans suffered. . . . Marching to Zion is a memorable story, with a very clear message that the journey is not over." --Jewish Book Council

"Readers who are interested in Southern historical novels examining black-white relationships and those who enjoy good storytelling are the natural audience here." --Library Journal

"Religion isn't the only thing that stirs Glickman to fervor: she writes in a high-drama, no-holds-barred style when it comes to romance. . . . [An] entertaining novel about sins of the flesh and the redemptive power of belief." --Publishers Weekly

"Glickman skillfully conveys the struggles of African-Americans and Jews during this era." --Kirkus Reviews

"A powerful tale of love, hatred, violence, hope, and regeneration. At its center, lives entwined, are a black man and a Jewish refugee, each as staunch and tenacious as the Zion they both seek." --Sonia Taitz, author of The Watchmaker's Daughter
"A literary triumph, and easily the best novel I have read this year. Mary Glickman's story of hope burns brightly through the darkness, driven by characters fighting to maintain dignity above all else." --Sandi Krawchenko Altner, author of Ravenscraig
"Mary Glickman gives us a nuanced image of our twentieth-century selves, our society woven into stunning art. I see the Mississippi floods, the Jewish and African American dance of interconnection, and ultimately our paired journey toward Zion." --Carolivia Herron, author of Thereafter Johnnie and Nappy Hair
