Kirkus Review of The Weaver’s Daughter

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m re-releasing The Weaver’s Daughter with my new publisher, Paper Angel Press. I just had a review from Kirkus. Here’s a quote from them:

“Patience tells a story of migration appropriate for young readers without being overly sanitized—for instance, the tension is palpable in Ixchel’s confrontation with her attacker, and there is mild violence. But the overall danger level is low, and the book never goes into detail about the threats an unaccompanied girl would likely face. While the depictions of Yucatecan life are vivid and well researched, they are clearly written for an American audience (“Although hundreds of years have passed since the conquistadores came from Spain, we Yucatec Maya are still proud to speak our language”). The plot and pacing are solid, and the characters are well developed, making for an enjoyable and educational story for young readers.

“An engaging tale about family and migration.”

If you’d like to read the whole review you can find it at this page on Kirkus Reviews. Although it gives the release date as November 1st, I don’t have an exact date yet, but sometime this month it should be out with a slightly new look.

And look for The Double Crossing to come out later this month also. Stay tuned.
