In the Days of Sand and Stars is a collection of ten stories featuring women of the Bible, like Eve, Sarai (Sarah), Rebecca, Leah, Rachel, and so on. The author has written these stories in the midrash tradition, exploring the Biblical text to find new insights for our times. François Thisdale’s striking digitally-composed illustrations accompany Pinkser’s short but powerful stories. With its pages edged in gold leaf and with a gold-coloured bookmark ribbon, In the Days of Sand and Stars makes an ideal Confirmation or Bat Mitzvah gift. mRb
