"It's 1912. Sixteen-year-old Miriam Josefsohn is groomed for the life of a socialite, but dreams of working in the family print shop. When her father refuses to train her as his replacement, Miriam decides to take control of her life, and devotes herself to women's suffrage at the height of the Oregon campaign. In the process, she meets the mysterious Serakh, who inquires about a special shawl with a single blue thread. Miriam discovers that this forgotten family heirloom, her great-grandmother's prayer shawl, is capable of transporting her thousands of years into the past, where she is introduced to the Daughters of Zelophehad and their ancient struggle for women's rights. With Serakh as her guide, Miriam embarks on a journey to alter the past--but will she have the courage to fight for her own future?"--P. [4] of cover.
