Michelle Cameron's new book, "The Fruit of Her Hands"

Toda, I'm doing something a little different. Michelle Cameron, author of the recently published  The Fruit of Her Hands, is going on a blog tour.  I am one of the people she has chosen for her blog tour, and I really feel quite privileged to have been chosen.  Here, I will simply introduce her.  The Fruit of Her Hands is about one of her ancestors, a Jewish woman living in 13th century France, where she witness a mob burning all the copies of the Torah and Talmud the mob can get their hands on.  She has secretly studied these books, with her father, a rabbi or scholar in the Jewish community of 13th century Paris.  This is about her life, and what she had to do to preserve her people's knowledge, and her own integrity.  Though I haven't yet had a chance to read the book, it sounds very exciting.  So I will, in a subsequent(very subsequent) post, start asking her some questions about the book and how she came to write it, in preparation for this blog tour, which she will presumably be answering.  As I say, I feel very privileged


Thank you, Michelle Cameron,

Anne G
