This book is definitely a 5 star book for me! I had heard some many great things about Kathi Macias's books and was not disappointed when I read this book. You might even be surprise at some of the things you learn about Harriet Tubman.
Mazie Hartford is in love with Edward Clayton and he is in love with her. Edward has asked Mazie to marry him but there is a problem, is Mazie ready to enter an interracial marriage? Mimi, who is Mazie great-grandmother, has a quilt that is called the Moses quilt,because it tells the life of Harriet Tubman and she uses this quilt to help Mazie make the right choice as her own health is failing.This is a quick read and you will want to keep reading to found out what Mimi tells Mazie and Edward. After reading this book I am ready to read others by Kathi Macias.
