The Moses Quilt by Kathi Macias
Mazie can't commit when her boyfriend of two years asks her to marry him. She knows she loves him, so what is the issue? As she tries to figure out her reluctance, her great-grandmother begins to tell her a story about a quilt. The quilt tells the story of Harriet Tumban and her amazing journey to help her fellow slaves.

I had only read one Macias book before. I really enjoyed it so was looking forward to starting this book. I was not disappointed. The history and moral lessons woven into the story lend a nostalgic and heartwarming touch. The grandmother was my favorite character. Her story telling and the way she related to her family was beautiful. I appreciated the artful way that Macias handled the subject of racism and prejudice. The ending was sad, but sweet and left me with a beautiful feeling as I closed the book. I will definitely be reading more of this authors books.

I received this book free of charge from New Hope Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
