There are only a couple of days left of the virtual book tour for The Weaver’s Daughter. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to read the reviews and see lots of positive feedback. The main criticism has been that the story ended too soon or that the reader hoped there was a sequel. (Sorry, there isn’t.)
Here are a few of the comments from some of the Instagram reviews:
“It has been a complete honor to enjoy 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘞𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘳’𝘴 𝘋𝘢𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘦𝘳 by Sylvia Patience this week. This book is so well-written and truly an important book for middle grade readers! I was so engaged and captivated due to the story being told from 12 year old Ixchel’s point of view. The suspense of this story will keep you on the edge of your seat, rooting for our young friend all the way.”⠀

“I enjoyed the story of Ixchel and it being told from her perspective. The book explores cultures I am not familiar with, but enjoyed learning. I found the relationships Ixchel had with her mother and grandmother compelling. A short, interesting and well written book.”
“This was such a moving story. I loved how it was written from Ixchel (Chel)’s perspective, in her voice – that added to the emotional aspect of this book. We go on Chel’s journey from Merida, Yucatan in Mexico to the United States of America. Right from the start we learn that Chel is brave but as her journey begins, you begin to realize just how resilient and strong she must be. It isn’t until you read this story from a twelve year old’s perspective that you understand how treacherous and dangerous the journey is. It is eye opening to think that so many people choose this to reach a better life.
“My heart was in my mouth as I read this book. Fantastic writing that really shows us the true emotions and choices of someone in Chel’s position.”
I appreciate that so many bloggers took the time to read and review The Weaver’s Daughter. I’m glad they enjoyed it and came away with some new knowledge or understanding. I’m looking forward to the last couple of book tour days next week.
