Book Review: Blue Thread by Ruth Tenzer Feldman

Miriam wants to be a printer, just like her daddy. She has a book of printing fonts in her bedroom, and imagines creating such lovely posters, menus, and bills that people line up at the door of her print shop door. Unfortunately for her, Daddy doesn’t believe that girls are able to do the work, and intends someday to leave the shop to Miriam’s younger cousin Albert. Mama doesn’t believe girls need an education. This fall, instead of going to school again as she wants, Miriam will leave Ohio to accompany her Mama to the marriage markets of New York.

Absolutely nothing is going Miriam’s way at all. Life is so, so unfair.  Suddenly,
Things Start to Change!
