Reviews
"Michelle Cameron deftly gives dramatic voice to the Jewish women of the Middle Ages. "The Fruit of Her Hands" is suspenseful, soulful, and plain wonderful. It takes us to the heights of scholarship and imagination." -- Ruchama King, author of "Seven Blessings"
"Michelle Cameron delves into one of the darkest eras of the Jewish past and brings forth a deeply compassionate and thoroughly gripping story of a woman whose fate is inextricably bound up with that of her people. Meticulously researched yet richly imaginative, it will keep you spellbound until the last, enthralling page." -- Eva Etzioni-Halevy, author of "The Triumph of Deborah"
""The Fruit of Her Hands" lets the reader experience first-hand the tragic end of hundreds of years of Jewish presence in medieval France through the voice of its passionate and learned heroine. This novel shows us that women, too, can bear witness to history." -- Maggie Anton, author of "Rashi's Daughters"
"With a powerful immediacy, Cameron's meticulously researched historical is told by Shira, an anomalous 13th-century woman raised (and educated) like a son by her widowed father...Readers will drink in the historical detail." -- "Publishers Weekly"
"Cameron's clean, clear prose clings to the reader's memory long after it's been read, as does her heroine. This novel will appeal to everyone who craves an accurate, arresting novel." -- "Romantic Times"
"Readers who appreciated Maggie Anton's "Rashi's Daughters" trilogy will be entertained." -- "Library Journal"
"A beautifully written saga, [...] With strong main characters, a myriad of important secondary players, "The Fruit of Her Hands" is a gripping, fascinating, and informative narrative of a tragic, yet important historical period." -- "Romance Reviews Today"
""The Fruit of Her Hands "is equally rich as history and fiction. ...[A] book so rich with wonderful characters, vivid settings, and an absolutely lush and wonderful depiction of the strengths of the medieval Jewish home and community. Cameron is an author I certainly hope to hear more from. This is a first-rate choice for Jewish book clubs." -- "San Diego Jewish World"
