    This review was written for The Moses Quilt - eBook.
    The Moses Quilt, a contemporary novel that bridges racial and generational divides, gives a clear presentation of the gospel as readers are introduced to a confused and apprehensive Mazie Hartford. Mazie is facing major decisions about the love of her life and her future. Her great-grandmother comes to her rescue when she shows her the Moses quilt. As she learns that each patch represents a story of courage and freedom, Mazie finds the courage and freedom to make the right choices for her life.

    My Review:

    This novel is very slow paced in parts, but the end result is worth it! Edward and Mazie are an inter-racial couple, and I was frustrated that it wasn't made known from the beginning. It was alluded to, and hinted at, but Macias didn't come right out and say it till later in the book. Race is still somewhat of a controversial topic, and I think as a culture/society we should all be way past all that. Macias takes it all in stride and gives a realistic look at what it is like, even today, for couples that are different because of race, culture, etc.

    The quilt bears mentioning, and I particularly enjoyed the way Macias presented this aspect of the story. I think it may be hard for some readers to be patient with the telling of the quilt story, but I enjoyed how Mimi told the story in snatches as her life fades away. Granted, I wasn't happy she was dying, but I appreciated the way that the story was told in fragments; piece by piece, bit by bit. The background history on Harriet Tubman was also fascinating, and overall, this book was wonderful!

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    In this moving novel Kathi Macias gives us more than just an entertaining story but a wonderful history lesson as well. With the help of a beautiful quilt we are told the story of the courageous Harriet Tubman.

    Will this story play a role in helping Mazie decide if she should marry the handsome young man who has become dear to her heart? Will this story prove to her there is no obstacle love cannot conquer?

    Mazie and Edward are two people in love that are from very different backgrounds and cultures. Mazie's ninety six year old great-grand mother lovingly known as Mimi was born in Alabama and has come to live with Mazie and her mother in California. Even though raised in the South amidst all the racial prejudices, Mimi doesn't have a problem with Mazie and Edward's courtship.

    Mazie is hesitant about accepting Edward's proposal, Mimi thinks she knows the reason why and she wants to do something to help the couple before she passes away.

    When Mimi tells Mazie to go to her old chest and get out the beautiful quilt she has put away she knows she is in for something special. Mimi tells her the quilt is called The Moses Quilt because each square tells a piece of the story of a brave woman who was the Moses of her people; Harriet Tubman. Mimi has a secret that she wants to share with Mazie and Edward but will she live long enough to do so?

    This is the first book I have read by Ms. Macias and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was good to be reminded of the sacrifices made by Mrs. Tubman to help her enslaved people. The storyline was very moving and it was brilliant how Ms. Macias wove the two stories together. Thank you Ms. Macias for this heartwarming story, I can't wait to read more of your work.

    How do I describe this book? Wow!! I was glued to the pages from the very beginning and just couldn't put it down. The author has a talent in bringing her characters to life by giving them so much personality.

    I felt so many emotions while reading this story, it gave me goose bumps. It's quite obvious early on that Kathi Macias did her homework. If she would have been my history teacher I would have learned so much more. Macias' writing skills are brilliant.

    I'm eager to read the next book in the series.

    This heartwarming story features a woman, Mazie Hartford, searching for answers that will help her bridge the racial barriers that separate her from the love of her life. Her great-grandmother, Mimi, takes her on a storytelling journey through an heirloom quilt, featuring the life of Harriet Tumban. Harriet was considered the Moses of her time, and she was credited with rescuing hundreds of slaves through the Underground Railroad. Will Mazie find the answers she is searching for through these two women of faith? This is also a personal call for the readers to look at their own prejudices and to walk in faith and courage in their everyday lives. This is an excellent read for those searching for answers and seeking to increase their own faith.
