“An unforgettable story of female strength, hope and friendship. This collaborative work is magnificent—a true revelation!” —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman with the Blue Star

The Thread Collectors sen­si­tive new nov­el about a group of men and women, both Black and white, free and enslaved, caught in the Civ­il War and forced to adapt to the depri­va­tions and hor­rors of the bloody con­fla­gra­tion. They strug­gle to find their strength, sharp­en their wits, and devel­op their talents.

About the Authors

This is a first nov­el for Edwards, a trained cor­po­rate lawyer, and the eighth for Rich­man, an inter­na­tion­al­ly rec­og­nized author of his­tor­i­cal fic­tion. All at once, their seam­less col­lab­o­ra­tion illu­mi­nates unique truths from both Black tra­di­tion and white Jew­ish her­itage and under­pins the com­mon­al­i­ty of the human condition.
