The Lovereading4Kids commentA powerful and moving story which encourages teenagers to stand up for what they believe in and reaffirms the importance of fighting for peace. Hildeâ€™s always been against the war with Iraq so, when her peace campaigning mother sends her to live with her father on the US Air Force base where everyone is getting ready for war, she is furious. It seems pointless to protest as war looks inevitable but, a connection with the past which puts Hilde in touch a â€˜peace-weaverâ€™ from the sixth-century, reconfirming her strength of purpose.
Peace Weavers by Julia Jarman
Hilde is furious when her peace-campaigner mother sends her to live with her father on a USAF base. Refusing to go to school, she joins an archaeological dig (â€œnot really her sceneâ€) where she meets Friedman (â€œdefinitely not her typeâ€). Heâ€™s the son of an American fighter pilot. War with Iraq looks inevitable, but Hilde feels that protesting is futile. That is, until she steals a gold brooch from the grave of a sixth-century woman â€“ a peace weaver â€“ and suddenly, her feelings begin to change.
