What to do when sick!
It’s been a long miserable week with not being able to do anything because of a sinus infection, so I spent it with comfort books. That’s why you’re getting 2 reviews from me today-that and freezing rain is falling so I may not have power later.
As promised–the review
The Moses Quilt by Kathi Macias
If you want surprise endings, and to know more about Harriet Tubman this book is for you.
If you are looking for a book about quilts, this isn’t it. Though the Moses Quilt is an important piece of the story as a quilter I would have liked to know more about the other squares that were in it. There is a small square on the cover and the quilt must be beautiful—much like the story of Mazie Hartford.
I enjoyed reading The Moses Quilt even though I expected something quite different. The history of Harriet Tubman is presented in an intriguing way and you want to know why this is so important to Mazie’s grandmother.
Macias has a way with piecing plot and storytelling in an intricate way that makes a reader search his or her own heart while reading The Moses Quilt.
