"Using a tapestry theme to intertwine the lives of Biblical women from the Old and New Testaments, Sanderson's (Papa Gatto) intricate illustrations and involving storytelling reveal how each of the women featured wove beauty and purpose into her life. Presents twenty-three stories about women in the Old and New Testaments, including Eve, Rachel, and Ruth. Sanderson's colorfully detailed sketches are so convincing that readers may well mistake them for genuine tapestry weavings. The artist deftly matches the mood of her elegant tapestries with the characters of the Biblical women profiled. Each tale, enlivened with dialogue, and paired with an elegant portrait, allows readers to visualize the choices these women made and for which they will long be remembered. Ages 8-up. -Publisher's Weekly"
