Title: THE MOSES QUILT

Author: Kathi Macias

Publisher: New Hope Publishers

Date: 2013

 

The Moses Quilt is a story within a story that touches not only our hearts, but our souls as well.

“Was it possible Mimi was telling them this story about the Moses quilt so their family could unwrap a story of their own?”

Eagerly awaiting the next portion of the story Mazie Hartford waits patiently for her great-grandmother to point to one of the patches on the quilt. Edward Clayton, a successful lawyer, joins her. They are not the only ones. I sat with her in the room listening attentively to each part of the story.

Harriet Tubman was a god-fearing person who obeyed and believed in God. She was called to be the Moses of her people. Moses of the Bible was the instrument God used to free the Israelites from slavery out of Egypt. During the 1800’s in the South, this courageous woman helped many slaves to freedom.

What’s not to like about him, or love, for that matter? He’s good and kind, intelligent and successful –not to mention, extremely handsome. I can only imagine how many women would trade place with me in a heartbeat.

Then why can’t she say yes to Edward’s marriage proposal? What is it that holds Mazie back? Does she know why?

I enjoyed living day to day with Mazie, portraying the love she has for her great-grandmother, and her love for Edward. Each day a patch of the quilt told a story that could lead to the answer Mazie was looking for. Tragedy strikes; the path to the answer is blocked. Is there another way in finding the answer?

Two things stood out for me. We can learn from mistakes made in the past, even mistakes made generations ago.  Everything is possible if we believe in God. Our personal relationship with Him overcomes all difficult circumstances.

God is a God of the impossible, do we believe it? Harriet Tubman did.

Kathi Macias, is a master storyteller. I enjoyed The Moses Quilt tremendously and will recommend it wholeheartedly.

New Hope Publishers provided this book to me for free in exchange for this honest review.

  1. Retha, this is one of the most insightful reviews I’ve ever received. Thank you!

     
  2. Sounds like an interesting book. I like the idea of different stories being told by the grandmother (according to quilt patches) that tie into the larger story going on in the novel. Is it very religious though playing deep into the whole idea and stories of God?

     
  3. You have done this book justice with your review. I will have to check it out. :-)
