Summary
The women's suffrage movement is in full swing in 1912 Portland, Oregon-the last holdout state on the West Coast. Miriam desperately wants to work at her father's printing shop, but when he refuses she decides to dedicate herself to the suffrage movement, demanding rights for women and a different life for herself. Amidst the uncertainty of her future, Miriam's attention is diverted by the mysterious Serakh, whose sudden, unexplained appearances and insistent questions lead Miriam to her great-grandmother's Jewish prayer shawl-and to her destiny. With this shawl, Miriam is taken back in time to inspire the Daughters of Zelophehad, the first women in Biblical history to own land. Miriam brings the strength and courage of these women with her forward in time, emboldening her own struggles and illuminating what it means to be an independent woman
Summary
When sixteen-year-old Miriam Josefsohn inherits her grandmother's prayer shawl, she is thrust into a time-traveling adventure where she is transported back in time to inspire the Daughters of Zelophehad, the first women in biblical history to own land
