The Ninth Day
Blue Thread Saga
This companion novel to Blue Thread and Seven Stitches takes us to Berkeley, California, in December, 1964, at the time of the free speech protests and to Paris, France, in December, 1099, at the end of the First Crusade. Miriam Hope Friis is a shy, talented, and stuttering young woman, smothered by her domineering older sister. The gift she accepts from her ailing grandfather embroils her in a quest to prevent a distraught father from killing his newborn son. Hope must find her voice and navigate draconian choices within the eight days of Hanukkah.
